It appears another Buffalo Sabre has been hurt while playing overseas.

This time, it’s Joel Armia — taken 16th overall at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft — who reportedly suffered a concussion while playing in Finland’s SM-liiga for Porin Assat.

The news was reported on the Assat website and by Goran Stubb, the NHL’s Director of European Scouting.

Armia’s injury occurred during Saturday’s game against JYP Jyvaskyla, and came just weeks after Buffalo forward Tyler Ennis returned to his Swiss team after missing seven games with a mystery injury.

Armia, 19, was off to a solid start with Assat this season, scoring 9G-4A-13PTS in his first 22 games.

This past summer, he was part of the Sabres prospect camp along with 2012 first round picks Mikhail Grigorenko and Zemgus Girgensons — the trio actually skated together on a line that had Buffalo fans excited for the future.
