Jeanneret Out for Thursday’s Game

Buffalo Sabres play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret did not make the team charter plane to Carolina today and will miss his third straight game Thursday when the National Hockey League team meets the Hurricanes.

“He’s feeling a lot better and hopes to be back in the booth as early as possible for Friday’s game (also with the Hurricanes),” said Sabres spokesman Mike Gilbert.

Kevin Sylvester, who works for the team, will take over Jeanneret’s duties for the second straight game Thursday as the Hall of Fame voice of the Sabres recovers from an undisclosed illness.

In another note from the Small World Department, the Buffalo newlyweds, Max and Katie Bichler, who will appear in the next edition of the CBS reality series “The Amazing Race,” have a connection to Gilbert.

“She is my niece,” said Gilbert, who attended their wedding in October. Gilbert added the Bichlers met four years ago at his annual charity golf tournament, the Gilbert Golf Outing, to raise money for St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute.

The next edition of the Emmy-winning “The Amazing Race” premieres on Sunday, Feb. 17.
