Quinn resting after surgery

PHILADELPHIA -- Sabres managing partner Larry Quinn is recovering this morning after undergoing heart surgery in the Cleveland Clinic to repair an aortic aneurysm. The surgery was scheduled in advance before it was performed Monday.

Mike Gilbert, director of public relations, said this morning the operation was similar one former defenseman Teppo Numminen had to repair a heart valve during his career. Quinn is expected to remain in the hospital for the next seven to 10 days. The Sabres had no other details.

"Larry Quinn, managing partner of the Buffalo Sabres, successfully completed surgery to repair an aneurysm of the ascending aorta on Monday afternoon," a statement released by the Sares said this morning. "Mr. Quinn is resting at the Cleveland Clinic and will return to his duties at the Sabres as his physical condition will allow."

The Sabres are playing the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at Wells Fargo Center.
