Sabres’ Sulzer out for season following ACL surgery

By Bill Hoppe     Olean Times Herald

BUFFALO – Defenseman Alexander Sulzer hadn’t been seen much around the Sabres since injuring his knee early in a 4-0 home loss to the New York Islanders on Feb. 23.

Today, though, the German was spotted on crutches sporting a cast around his right leg in the First Niagara Center dressing room.

Not long after, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston said Sulzer had undergone surgery to repair his ACL and would be out the rest of the season.

Initially, Rolston said, doctors couldn’t diagnose the injury because of swelling.

Sulzer has missed the last eight games. The 28-year-old played 17 contests this season, compiling three goals, four points, a plus-3 rating and 10 penalty minutes.
