Rivet out Two Weeks with Knee Scope

Filed under: Sabres, NHL General, NHL Fights, NHL InjuriesAccording to WGR550, Buffalo Sabres Captain Craig Rivet (D) had to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery today. GM Darth Regier informed them that Rivet will be out a minimum of two weeks. At 5-0-1, the Sabres have played excellent defense so far this season (with the exception of a couple of periods against Boston and Atlanta) which can be attributed to the addition of Rivet and his pairing with Henrik Tallinder. His no nonsense approach to the game was just starting to rub off on Hank as I began to see signs of the player that was so dominant during the 2006 playoffs before breaking his arm against Carolina.

Nathan Paetsch will most likely be inserted into the lineup. No mention has been made as to whether Mike Weber will be called up from Portland for the upcoming road trip. If I know Regier, he’ll want to try and keep Weber in the AHL for as long a continuous stretch as possible, allowing that group of players to gel as much as possible. It’s the reason no one was called up when Jochen Hecht went down with a broken finger last week.

You can here Lindy Ruff’s comments here on the Rivet injury here.

For a little taste of what the Sabres will be missing in the next two weeks check out the video after the jump:
