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.
