BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Sabres forward Conor Sheary is in jeopardy of missing the start of the regular season with what the team calls an upper body injury.
Coach Phil Housley didn't go into much detail Tuesday, saying Sheary was injured while being checked during the first day of training camp on Friday. Sheary is listed week to week.
The injury is a setback for the Sabres, who were counting on Sheary playing on one of the top two lines after acquiring the forward in a trade with Pittsburgh in June. Sheary is a two-time Stanley Cup winner and has 48 goals and 93 points in 184 games.
