Chabot suffered the injury in the Senators game against the Columbus Blue Jackets Wednesday. He left the game in the second period and did not return.
This season, Chabot has six goals and 28 assists in 55 games. His 34 points put him 22nd among all defensemen. Chabot has led all Senators defensemen in points in each of the past four years. The 25-year-old blueliner was selected 18th overall by the Sens in the 2015 NHL Draft and was an All-Star in 2019.
Ottawa is currently 15th in the Eastern Conference with a 21-34-5 record and is on a three-game losing skid. Their next game is Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
