The Buffalo Sabres are having an extremely trying beginning to the season - and to the Phil Housley and Jason Botterill era.

1-5-2 through 8 games, things are looking all too familiar for this team, and for their fans.

With that said, yet another injury will force a roster change for Buffalo.

The two former Montreal Canadiens' defenseman aren't impact players for this team - so that's some consolation. But it remains another bump in the road for a team plagued by injuries early in this 2017-18 campaign.

Zach Redmond has a goal and 2 assists in 4 games played in Rochester.

Meanwhile, Josh Gorges has suited up for only 4 games for the Sabres, registering 0 points - albeit being one of the few positive +/- players on the team at +1.
