"We're pleased that Jonas' surgery was successful and he will start the rehab process tomorrow," said Buffalo Sabres Assistant General Manager Randy Sexton. "He is a talented young goalie that has developed nicely over the past two seasons and we have every expectation that this slight set back will, in no way, derail his continued development".
