Buffalo Sabres defenseman Alexander Sulzer will miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee.
Interim coach Ron Rolston provided the update Thursday, after Sulzer was spotted walking on crutches in the locker room. Sulzer had missed eight games since being hurt when his skate got caught in a rut in a 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Feb. 23.
He had three goals and an assist in 17 games this season.
Rolston called it ''highly likely'' that forward Ville Leino will be ready to play against Ottawa on Saturday. Leino has missed the first 27 games with a hip injury.
Rolston added there's a ''strong possibility'' center Tyler Ennis will also return after missing one game with a head injury.

I'm pretty confident that the Sabres would be happy to get, say, a 5th or 6th-round draft choice for Jochen Hecht on or before April 3rd. Hey, John Scott was dealt for a 5th-rounder last season at the trade deadline, so who knows?
To all of you Sabres fans who think such a return would be worthless, and can't understand why Buffalo would demote Brian Flynn or Marcus Foligno...

These days, there is more than enough chatter about Ryan Miller to go around. Some people want him traded before this year’s deadline because they see him walking at the end of next year when he becomes a free agent, while others think that is the worst decision this team could possible make. They feel like the team in front of him has been a flaming pile of dog-do and without...
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Sabres have traded defenseman T.J. Brennan to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in this year's draft.
The move came after Buffalo already began shuffling its roster by returning rookie center Mikhail Grigorenko to his team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Brennan had one goal in 10 games this season. He also had...
A bunch of situations to discuss this week, so let’s get right into it:
Buffalo Sabres- Ryan Miller is dealing with a sinus infection, and although Buffalo doesn’t play again until Saturday, there’s a chance he may miss that game. Miller has lost four in a row (one was in a shootout where he came in the third period late in a tie game) but has yet to show flashes...
The New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres hooked up for the second time in nine days with each team headed in opposite directions. The Rangers are winners of five of their last six games, including a 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres last Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The win snapped the Sabres three game winning streak [...]
