ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres center Cody Hodgson is out indefinitely after breaking a bone in his right hand during a game with the team's American Hockey League affiliate.
Rochester coach Ron Rolston says Hodgson will miss at least a few weeks before having his injury evaluated. Hodgson told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle he was hurt after being slashed by Adirondack's Brandon Manning in a game Oct. 27. Hodgson wore a splint in a game against Hamilton on Friday, before being sidelined the following day.
He has a goal and nine assists in nine games with Rochester.
Acquired by Buffalo in a trade with Vancouver in February, Hodgson is coming off his first full NHL season. The 2008 first-round draft pick was eligible to play in the minors during the NHL lockout.
