I got this from the Sabres a few minutes ago.

BUFFALO, NY (October 22, 2008) – Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced that defenseman Craig Rivet had arthroscopic surgery on his knee today. His recovery is expected to be a minimum of two weeks.

Rivet has three points (0+3) in six games with the Sabres this season, after being acquired in a trade from San Jose on July 4. The 34-year-old Rivet was named the 23rd captain in franchise history on October 8.

Let’s hope for a quick turnaround on this.
