Sabres F Moulson out through Olympic break

 

The Sports Network

Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Buffalo Sabres announced Friday that forward Matt Moulson will not return to action until the NHL returns from its Olympic break.

Moulson left late in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 win in Phoenix with an undisclosed injury, which the club revealed on Friday was an upper-body issue.

"If he's a fast mender, you never know," said Sabres head coach Ted Nolan.

Buffalo, which holds last place in both the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference, has four more games on its schedule before the league pauses as its players head to Sochi. The club resumes play on Feb. 25 at home against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The 30-year-old winger has totaled nine goals and 24 points in 40 games since his acquisition from the New York Islanders.
