"We have our fingers crossed," coach Kevin Dineen told the Herald. "We'll be without him for a little stretch, although I don't really have a timetable."
Meanwhile, Clemmensen, who has missed the first six weeks of the season because of knee surgery, is getting another chance to prove he is a quality starting goaltender.
"Injuries are part of the game. I know that," Clemmensen said. "I want to get going. We're near the halfway point, past Christmas. Jose has deserved the majority of starts this season. You have to play well when you get the opportunity. This is the best league in the world. Hopefully, this is an opportunity for me to get some starts and get some consistency going."
In nine games this season, Clemmensen has registered .891 save percentage and 3.03 goals-against-average.
This opportunity could also provide Clemmensen the chance to be displayed to several clubs looking to acquire a veteran netminder closer to the trade deadline.
