BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Sabres forward Victor Olofsson left practice early on Saturday after appearing to injure his arm.

During practice Olofsson left early after crashing into the net, resulting in him clutching his arm during a one-on-one drill.

The forward later returned to the ice, only grabbing his arm later and leaving practice all together.

During conference call with reporters, Sabres head coach Ralph Kruger told the media that Olofsson is being assessed for an injury and did not provide an update.

Sabres captain Jack Eichel and goalie Linus Ullmark both missed practice for the second straight day.

Kruger said both of them should be ready to go for the Sabres first game of the season on January 14th against Washington.
