Sabres’ McCormick fails physical, out indefinitely


The Buffalo Sabres announced today that forward Cody McCormick, who has had issues with blood clots, did not pass his training camp physical and is out indefinitely.

McCormick last played a game on Jan. 9. The 32-year-old was originally diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg. The clots soon spread to his lungs. (For more on that, click here.)

The club also announced today that defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen would miss the first 7-10 days of training camp due to an upper-body injury.
