From Associated Press:
“Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was clutching his right arm in pain and had to be helped off the ice after being upended by defenseman Jordan Leopold in practice today.
The Sabres had no update on Ruff’s status, except to say the coach was not available to address reporters as he usually does after practice.
According to witnesses, Ruff was looking the other way when Leopold lost his footing and crashed into the back of the coach’s skates. Ruff fell backward, landing on his right arm.”
Maybe this will get categorized under the vague “upper-body injury” that the club likes to use.
