One young Buffalo Sabres forward won’t get a shot to make the team out of camp.
Sabres coach Ron Rolston announced forward Joel Armia broke his hand in last night’s preseason game and will be out indefinitely. The 2011 first-round pick, 16th overall, was injured during the second period of Buffalo’s win over Columbus and did not return.
Losing Armia is a tough blow for the youngster as he’s looking to make the team in his first season coming over from Finland. He’s had a solid preseason to this point and was pushing to earn a spot with the Sabres. Now that progress will be delayed as he recovers.
The team is high on Armia and to this point he’s given them hope he’ll be a solid player. Now their waiting game will have to continue.
