Buffalo Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams spoke to the media prior to the teams practice Friday morning at KeyBank Center and revealed some surprising news.
Rookie Jack Quinn suffered a lower-body injury in the first period of the Sabres’ 5-4 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. He will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.
Quinn, 20, scored his first NHL goal in his second career game and later tallied an assist on Dylan Cozens’ goal.
The Sabres are already dealing with several injuries, especially at the forward position. Kyle Okposo, Zemgus Girgensons and Vinnie Hinostroza all missed Thursday’s game.
With Quinn unavailable, the Sabres reassigned forward Brett Murray from the Rochester Americans to the taxi squad.
The Sabres host the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
