Mittelstadt (upper body) won't join the Sabres for their upcoming four-game road trip, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Mittelstadt will miss Buffalo's next four games at a minimum. Coach Don Granato is hoping to get the 22-year-old pivot back in the mix shortly after the Sabres return to Buffalo for a Nov. 6 matchup with Detroit, but Mittelstadt could miss that contest as well. The 2017 first-round pick has gone scoreless through one game this campaign.
