Sabres’ 2011 First-Round Pick Armia Out With Broken Hand

Armia_2013Sabres coach Ron Rolston announced forward Joel Armia broke his hand in last night’s preseason game and will be out indefinitely. The 2011 first-round pick, 16th overall, was injured during the second period of Buffalo’s win over Columbus and did not return.

Losing Armia is a tough blow for the youngster as he’s looking to make the team in his first season coming over from Finland. He’s had a solid preseason to this point and was pushing to earn a spot with the Sabres. Now that progress will be delayed as he recovers.
