Nylander week-to-week with injury

The Sabres’ top pick from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft is going to miss some time.

Head coach Phil Housley said that Alexander Nylander is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

It’s unfortunate,” Housley said. “He’ll be assessed. Guarding on the side of caution because it’s so early in the season.”

Sean Malone is also dealing with a week-to-week injury. Both players are unlikely to make the roster straight out of training camp because of the injuries.

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.
