Injuries have hit the Buffalo Sabres early in the preseason.
Sean Malone took a hit to the knee in the second period of Monday night's win against Columbus and hobbled off the ice. He is listed as out for six weeks.
Malone is expected to be a major contributor in his second season in Rochester.
Conor Sheary, acquired in the offseason from Pittsburgh, is listed as week to week with an upper body injury. Sheary practiced on the first two days of training camp and then was out Sunday for what was termed a maintenance day. He did not make the trip to Columbus.
Matt Hunwick is listed as out indefinitely with a neck injury. Hunwick, also acquired from the Penguins, has not been on the ice yet for the Sabres.
