The Sabres have traded Joel Armia, Drew Stafford, Tyler Myers, Brendan Lemieux and a 1st round pick to the Jets for Evander Kane, Zach Bogosian and Jason Kasdorf.

Armia, 21, was the 16th overall pick in the 2011 draft. The 6-foot-3, 187 lbs. forward has great size and great skill. He had registered 10 goals and 15 assists (25 points) in 33 games so far in his second season with Rochester (AHL). There is no word whether he will report to St. John’s (AHL) or Winnipeg.

The Sabres' Joel Armia, one of the former first-round picks competing for a roster spot, has a broken hand and is out indefinitely.

The right winger took a slash during Wednesday's 3-0 victory over Columbus and was unable to finish the game. X-rays revealed the break, coach Ron Rolston said today. It hasn't been determined whether Armia will need surgery or if the injury will heal on its own.
