Buffalo Sabres center Ryan O’Reilly’s impaired driving case in Ontario has been delayed for the third time, according to CFPL-AM.
The case was pushed back – “put over” is the Canadian legal term – this morning until Oct. 22, according to the radio station. The case was also moved on Aug. 20 and Sept. 10.
O’Reilly, 24, was arrested July 9 and charged with impaired driving and leaving the scene of an accident after his pickup truck allegedly hit a Tim Hortons in Lucan, Ont. He signed the biggest contract in Sabres history – a seven-year, $52.5 million extension – July 3.
The next court date falls on an off day between home games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens. O’Reilly isn’t scheduled to play in tonight’s preseason game in Minnesota against the Wild.
Update: The Sabres have recalled winger William Carrier from Rochester and sent defenseman Brady Austin to the Americans.
