The Sabres released a statement this morning that reads, in part:
"RJ has been a vital part of the Sabres family and the Buffalo community for 43 years, and this news undoubtedly weighs heavily on everyone who has had the privilege of listening to his broadcasts through the years."
The Sabres set up an email address - firstname.lastname@example.org for fans to send well-wishes and notes of encouragement.
