Mair to start season on injured list

For the second straight year, Buffalo Sabres training camp will begin without Adam Mair. This time, so will the season.

The forward had arthroscopic surgery on his hip and will miss a minimum of six weeks, the team announced today. Training camp starts Sept. 12 and the first regular-season game is Oct. 3, a little less than five weeks away.

The 30-year-old Mair missed nearly all of training camp last year after undergoing offseason knee surgery. He returned for the final preseason game. He finished last season with a career-high eight goals in 75 games, adding 11 assists and 95 penalty minutes.

The injury to Mair temporarily thins the logjam the Sabres have at forward heading into training camp. They have at least six players expected to vie for three available starting jobs.
