The Buffalo Sabres announced today that forward Victor Olofsson will be out five to six weeks with a lower-body injury.

Olofsson exited last night's 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers in the third period after colliding into the end boards on Buffalo's game-tying goal. 

The 24-year-old rookie has posted 16 goals and 35 points in 42 games this season. 

He was named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for both October and December.
