BUFFALO, N.Y. — Sabres defenseman William Borgen will miss up to two months with a broken right forearm, further depleting Buffalo's injury-thinned blue line. 

Borgen had the fracture surgically repaired the team announced hours before it completes a four-game road trip in New Jersey. The rookie was hurt during a 3-2 win at New Jersey on Saturday. 

Buffalo is already missing Jake McCabe, who sustained a season-ending knee injury. 

And Rasmus Ristolainen is out indefinitely while recovering from the aftereffects of testing positive for COVID-19 three weeks ago.
