BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres announced Monday that defenseman Jake McCabe will be out for six to eight months due to a recent injury.

McCabe suffered injuries in his right knee to his ACL, MCL and meniscus in the Sabres win over New Jersey on Saturday. 

McCabe is expected to land on injured reserve in the coming days. This will free up his $2.85 million salary towards the team's salary cap.
