Sabres’ Jordan Greenway sits with injury; Erik Johnson scratched

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Jordan Greenway missed Sunday’s game against the Nashville Predators after suffering an apparent shoulder injury a night earlier.

Greenway, 26, left Saturday’s 6-2 road loss to the Carolina Hurricanes after the first period and did not return. He underwent shoulder surgery last year and battled the injury throughout the season.

Coach Don Granato said the Sabres would know more about Greenway’s injury today.

With Greenway injured, rookie winger Isak Rosen, 20, returned to the lineup following a one-game absence.

The Sabres made one change on defense, inserting rookie Ryan Johnson, 22, and scratching veteran Erik Johnson.

Coach Don Granato said the Sabres discussed load management with Erik Johnson, 35, prior to the season and saw Sunday as an “opportunity for recovery.” He played the first 24 games.
