Allard to miss Sabres camp

At the opening practice with his new club on Friday, Quebec Remparts C Jean-Simon Allard absorbed the receiving end of a Yannick Reiber elbow that will keep him sidelined for at least four-six weeks. Details of the play are coming together, but the injuries are said to include a fractured jaw (chin area) and dislocation. Surgery was required. Chosen in the 5th round of the 2007 draft, the 6'2, 185-pound Allard is in a good spot to achieve with a loaded Quebec squad after breaking out with 60 points last season for St. John's. The injury will obviously prevent the forward from skating in Buffalo's main camp in a few short weeks, and may force Remparts boss Patrick Roy to peruse the QMJHL trade market.

Damn it. Tough break (figuratively and literally) for JS.

No doubt. Not being a overly physical guy, coming back from this will be a true test for J.S.

Not only that, but moving on to a new team after the Espo deal won't necessarily grant him the easiest recovery time. Being the new guy and now the hurt new guy is only going to make it that much harder.
