Deslauriers to miss 3-5 weeks


Buffalo Sabres forward Nicolas Deslauriers will miss about a month due to a lower body injury suffered in the 4-3 loss to Detroit on Saturday.

Deslauriers has three goals and seven assists in 38 games with the Sabres this season. 

The Sabres have already called up Tim Schaller from Rochester, who had a stint with the team earlier this season. In six games, Schaller has two assists, but will likely get a larger opportunity due to the extent of Deslauriers’ injury.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
