Amerks lose leading scorer C.J. Smith for 4-6 weeks

The Rochester Americans will be without their leading scorer for the next four to six weeks.

Left wing C.J. Smith has suffered a lower-body injury and will be out at least a month, the organization announced Tuesday. Smith has a team hat trick, leading the Amerks in goals (14), assists (25) and points (39).

The 23-year-old is an American Hockey League All-Star in his first pro season. The Sabres signed him out of UMass-Lowell at the end of last year, and Smith appeared in two games with Buffalo.

Rochester (25-13-12) is third in its division but is on a season-worst five-game winless skid.
