Sabres star Tage Thompson to miss ‘significant time’ with injury

Buffalo Sabres star center Tage Thompson will “miss significant time” with an upper-body injury, head coach Don Granato announced after Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Thompson took a Charlie McAvoy shot off the left hand/wrist area in the second period and left the ice in significant discomfort.

He also sustained a cut on a fall earlier in the game, but Granato said it is the blocked shot that will keep Thompson out.

Thompson had six goals and six assists through the first 16 games this season.
