Sabres' Gaustad out a week after hurting hand
Buffalo Sabres center Paul Gaustad will miss at least a week with what the team is calling an upper body injury.
Coach Lindy Ruff would not provide details on the injury on Wednesday ahead of the game against Washington.
Gaustad appeared to hurt his right hand during a fight with Mike Rupp in the third period of Buffalo's 3-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Gaustad has nine goals and seven assists for 16 points in 49 games this season.
