Methot exited Tuesday's contest against the Sabres with a lower-body injury and will not return.

The nature and severity of the ailment are unclear, but Methot did sustain a lower-body injury earlier this month, so it could be an aggravation. Prior to his departure, the 31-year-old blueliner tallied a hit and no points over 15:22 of ice time.
