Gaustad out for a month

Buffalo Sabres
After injuring his thumb in a fight on Sunday, Paul Gaustad will need surgery to repair the ligaments. Given that there is still over a week until the season begins, and that he shouldn't be out for too long (and has a history of returning before expected) this shouldn't hurt the Sabres too badly as they have plenty of depth upfront.

Buffalo's other injured forward, Adam Mair is well on the road to recovery. While he is still a bit of a long shot to make the roster on opening day, he is not likely to miss more than the first two games.
