Sabres rookie Benson out week-to-week with lower-body injury
Buffalo Sabres rookie Zach Benson is out week-to-week with a lower-body injury, general manager Kevyn Adams announced Tuesday.
Benson has two assists and six penalty minutes in six games. He's played 13:17 per contest.
The Sabres drafted him 13th overall in June. A standout with the Winnipeg Ice, Benson tallied 36 goals and 98 points as a two-way force last season in the WHL.
The injury is an aggravation of a previous ailment the 18-year-old had been dealing with earlier in camp, Adams told The Buffalo News' Lance Lysowski.
Buffalo recalled forward Brandon Biro from the AHL's Rochester Americans on Tuesday. The 25-year-old has six points in five games to begin the season. He scored 51 points in 49 contests last year.
