BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) - The Buffalo Sabres will probably have to play a few more games without their leading scorer.

Maxim Afinogenov, who has eight goals and 11 assists in 13 games, is expected to be sidelined for at least a week with what the team is calling an "upper body" injury.

The Buffalo News reported that Afinogenov's injury is believed to be a separated shoulder.

The Russian right wing suffered the injury after being checked into the boards by defenseman Wade Belak in the first period of Saturday's 4-1 loss to Toronto.

Afinogenov did not play in the Sabres' 4-3 overtime win over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Sabres coach Lindy Ruff did not give a timetable for Afinogenov's return, other than saying it would be "a while."

It's gotta be his shoulder.

And now that I think about it:

Did he even have the puck? Did they call a penalty on the play? I don't remember anything being called there.
