REGIER UPDATES LEOPOLD INJURY
Prior to Saturday’s game against the Devils, Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier told the media that defenseman Jordan Leopold will be out for “an extended period of time” after suffering a hand injury in Friday’s 4-2 win over the Panthers.  Leopold scored his career-high 13th goal of the season in that game.

“We’ll know more Monday when he sees the hand specialist.  But it’s going to be not day-to-day, it will be weeks,” Regier said, adding that the injury would end Leopold’s regular season.

The first-year Sabre leads all Buffalo blueliners in goals with 13 and, entering Saturday’s game, was tied with Tyler Myers with 35 points, which is also a career-high for Leopold.

Regier said that Leopold suffered the injury about halfway through Friday night’s game. Steve Montador returned from a lower body injury to replace Leopold in the lineup against New Jersey.
