Matt Moulson suffered a upper body injury in the Buffalo Sabers win vs the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night. According to Sabers head coach Ted Nolan, it looks like Moulson will be out until after the Olympic break, which begins Feb. 9 and runs through Feb. 24.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.Moulson has become one of the key offensive pieces for the Buffalo Sabers since coming over in the Thomas Vanket trade, but was also thought of to be their best trade chip ahead of the trade deadline. However, with the injury their key trading chip will be on the shelf and his trade stock will likely plummet. It’s pretty difficult to trade an injured player, so the Buffalo Sabers will be looking for a quick recovery or a signed contract before the trade deadline.
