BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres top draft pick Dylan Cozens had surgey this week to repair an injured left thumb.
The Sabres provided the update Friday.
He was hurt Saturday during a three-on-three scrimmage on the final day of the Sabres' developmental camp. A video showed Cozens leaving the ice with his thumb appearing dislocated. Afterward, the Canadian said he was confident his thumb wasn't broken.
The Sabres' say he will need about 2-3 months recovery.
The 18-year-old center was selected with the No. 7 pick in the draft last month.
