Sabres' Roy out 4-6 months with injury

Derek Roy, the Buffalo Sabres' leading scorer, will miss the rest of the season after surgery for a torn quadriceps tendon, the team announced today.

Roy will have surgery in the next few days for the injury suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Florida Panthers. His estimated recovery time is four to six months.

In 35 games this season, Roy has tallied 35 points, including 10 goals. Thomas Vanek is second in scoring with 25 points.

The Sabres, who are on the NHL-mandated break for the Christmas holiday, depart Sunday morning for a road trip to Calgary and Edmonton. They will practice Sunday in the Pengrowth Saddledome and play the Flames there Monday night. Buffalo is 12th in the Eastern Conference standings.
