Early Morning Sabres News

Couple of announcements coming from the Sabres this morning:

First, Paul Gaustad will 3-4 weeks due to thumb surgery on a torn ligament. Not known yet on when the injury was suffered but just as in the case of Roscoe Parrish from the Bills, it makes sense to have the surgery now instead of playing with it and making the situation worse.

Second, the Sabres have sent 13 players to Portland. The list includes Tyler Bouck and Jimmy Bonneau, who both have to clear waivers, Colton Fretter, Marc Andre Gragnani, Derek Whitmore, Felix Schutz, Colin Murphy, Mike Card, Mike Kostka, and Jhonas Enroth. This means that Gerbe Myers, and Kennedy are probably going to get some more action with the big club before getting sent down to Portland later. This is good news for the team that these new prospects are going to get mroe experience and possibly be able to crack the lineup. It will be hard for them to do so due to the influx of major players in the lineup. Though with the Gaustad injury, it will open up another spot.
