Brian Flynn will get a chance to play on Buffalo's top line against Colorado Saturday afternoon.

He will promoted from the fourth line and replace in for Drew Stafford, who is not ready to return to action as he is still dealing with an upper-body injury. "One thing about Flynner, he's a versatile guy," Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said. "He can go from fourth line to your top line. He's very versatile, so we could look at a possibility of putting him in there for a game or two." That said, Flynn only has eight points in 51 games so we don't see this alignment sticking.

Brian Flynn was the lone goal scorer for Buffalo in a 2-1 loss to the Wild Monday night,

The Sabres' inability to score has been an issue for the team for the entirety of the young season and tonight was certainly no different. The goal was Flynn's first of the year, but it immediately places him in a five-way tie for second on the team, one behind Thomas Vanek. Tyler Ennis, Tyler Myers, Christian Ehrhoff and Mikhail Grigorenko all continue to seek their first point of the year.

Brian Flynn is on the bubble to make Buffalo's opening night roster.

Zemgus Girgensons and Johan Larsson can also be assigned to the minors without needing waivers, but they have both enjoyed stronger showings at training camp. Flynn recorded six goals and 11 points in 26 games last season.

Despite scoring six goals and registering 11 points in 26 games with the Sabres last season, Brian Flynn is in tough to make the Sabres out of training camp.

Flynn, who got a shot at playing time in 2013 due to an avalanche of Sabre forward injuries, is in a battle to earn a roster spot. "He's in a tough spot right now in a sense fighting for positions so it'll be a big couple games for him right here", said Buffalo coach Ron Rolston. If Flynn doesn't succeed and is in fact farmed out to Rochester, it won't be for a lack of effort. The 25-year-old forward works hard on and off the ice to get the most out of his limited talent. That said, he does not have any fantasy value even if he does break camp with the Sabres.

Brian Flynn appeared in 26 games with the Sabres this past season and he feels like he belongs at the NHL level.

"I have the belief that I can play here," Flynn said. "This is where I belong. I know how hard you have to work to stay up here. It took a long time, a lot of hard work, a lot of hours to get here. This is where I really want to play. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to stay here." He led the team's rookie group with six goals, while finishing with 11 points, 49 shots and 20 blocks. Flynn could develop into a decent two-way forward, but for now he shouldn't be expected to contribute much in fantasy hockey.

Brian Flynn scored the Sabres' lone goal in a 2-1 shootout win over the Islanders Friday night.

Flynn has been one of the better rookies in the AHL this season and did manage 11 points in 26 games with the Sabres in 2013. The Sabres signed Flynn after he scored 18 goals and 48 points in 40 NCAA games during the 2011-12 season.

The Sabres have called up speedy winger Brian Flynn from Rochester of the AHL.

Flynn has been one of the better rookies in the AHL this season with 16 goals and 32 points. His 16 goals ties him with Mark Mancari for the team lead on the Amerks. That said, we don't expect Flynn to make much of a fantasy impact or to be with the Sabres for a prolonged period of time.
