Buffalo Sabres defenseman Brandon Montour is out for the remainder of the preseason after suffering a hand injury during the club's 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday, the team announced Thursday.
The Sabres will provide an update on his status after the conclusion of training camp.
Buffalo acquired the 25-year-old from the Anaheim Ducks in February. Montour recorded three goals and 10 points while averaging 21:37 of ice time through 20 games with the Sabres last season.
The 6-foot rearguard has tallied 19 goals and 73 points over 189 career contests.
