McCormick had previously missed four games earlier in the season with another injury and was in his fifth game back when he suffered this one. In 25 games this season, McCormick has one goal and four assists for five total points, while adding 43 penalty minutes and carrying a minus-6 rating.

With McCormick out, defenseman Alexander Sulzer will be activated off of injured reserve after missing the previous five games with a lower body injury. Spending most of the season so far with the Amerks, Sulzer has appeared in five games with the Sabres this season, being held off the score sheet with no penalty minutes and an even plus-minus rating.

Forward Cody Hodgson is also close to returning from a lower body injury that kept him out of the last two games, and could play in the Sabres next game Tuesday night against the Winnipeg Jets. Hodgson leads the team in scoring with eight goals and 10 assists for 18 points, also tallying 12 penalty minutes and a minus-9 rating.

Another move is likely to be made to remain at the 23-man roster limit.
