Report: Tropp to miss season with knee injury
Sabres prospect Corey Tropp will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season, according to multiple media reports.

Sabres prospect Corey Tropp will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season, according to multiple media reports, after sustaining ligament damage to his right knee in the season opener for Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester on Friday.

"Tough break but that's life," he said Monday via his Twitter account.

Tropp scored Rochester's first two goals in the Americans' 6-5 shootout win against the Syracuse Crunch, but left the game with about seven minutes to play in the third period after being checked along the boards by Crunch defenseman Radko Gudas. He limped back into the play after the hit, but hobbled to the bench about 20 seconds later, unable to put any weight on the leg.

"You hope for the best but you also know your body," Tropp told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. "I knew something didn't feel right."

The paper reported that Tropp will need season-ending surgery on the injured knee.

A third-round pick of the Sabres in the 2007 NHL Draft, the 23-year-old Tropp split last season between Rochester and Buffalo, recording three goals and eight points in 34 games with the Sabres. He added nine goals and 22 points in 27 AHL contests.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
