Sabres place Jeff Skinner on Injured Reserve, recall Brett Murray from Rochester

Another day, another injury for the Buffalo Sabres.

Forward Jeff Skinner was placed on Injured Reserve Thursday after taking a massive hit from Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon in Wednesday’s 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

In a corresponding move, Buffalo recalled forward Brett Murray from the Rochester Americans.

Skinner has 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) in 30 games this season, tied for the second-most on the team, trailing Rasmus Dahlin’s 24.

The Sabres continue their three-game West Coast trip Friday night in Vegas when they face Jack Eichel and the Golden Knights at 10 p.m.
