Brandon Montour To Miss NHL Preseason With Injury
Brandon Montour will miss the remainder of the NHL preseason the Buffalo Sabres announced on Thursday, after the defender suffered a hand injury.
Montour was hurt during the Sabres’ 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.
Acquired from the Anaheim Ducks last season, Montour, a former Tilbury resident and Chatham-Kent Cyclone, was slated to open the season in Buffalo’s top four.
