Injuries will sideline defenseman Marco Scandella and winger Jimmy Vesey tonight against the Detroit Red Wings, the Buffalo Sabres announced this afternoon.
Scandella (lower body) and Vesey (upper) were hurt in Thursday’s 6-2 loss to the New York Rangers, the start of a two-game road trip.
The Sabres said the players will be evaluated this weekend in Buffalo.
Defenseman John Gilmour, a healthy scratch the first 11 games this season, and winger Evan Rodrigues will likely move into the lineup.
Update: Gilmour and Rodrigues will play.
The Sabres also recalled defenseman Will Borgen from the Rochester Americans this morning.
Update: The Sabres sent Borgen back to the Amerks on Saturday morning.
