Player News - Sabres

Date: Team: Pos:

Matt Moulson (illness) should be available for Saturday's game against the Islanders.

He has missed Buffalo's last three games because of an illness. Moulson has seven goals and 15 points in 32 games this season. The Sabres could get defenseman Mike Weber back from injury on Saturday as well.
Dec 26 - 6:41 AM

Mark Pysyk has been returned to the minors.

He dressed in two games with Sabres during his NHL callup. Pysyk had one hit and two blocks in 20:35 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. He may be back with the Sabres after the Christmas break if no one on the back end is able to return from injury.
Dec 24 - 3:03 PM

Buffalo has sent Tim Schaller back to the minors.

He made his NHL debut on Nov. 29 and he scored his first goal this past Sunday in a 4-3 overtime loss to Boston. Schaller has averaged 10:08 of ice time per match in four games with Buffalo this campaign.
Dec 24 - 2:58 PM

Mikhail Grigorenko has been sent back to AHL Rochester.

The Sabres don't play again until Saturday because of the NHL's Christmas break. Buffalo has several injuries, so it's unclear who will be in the lineup once play resumes. Grigorenko earned his first point of the season when he picked up an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Detroit. He has dressed in four games with Buffalo.
Dec 24 - 2:54 PM

Joel Armia has been reassigned to the minors.

He made his NHL debut in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. Armia was credited with four hits in 14:47 of ice time.
Dec 24 - 2:49 PM

Brian Gionta didn't play Tuesday night because of an upper-body injury.

That was expected after he left Sunday's game following a hard hit from Boston's Matt Bartkowski. Coach Ted Nolan said Gionta is not suffering from a concussion, but the Sabres captain needs further examination when the team returns to Buffalo.
Dec 24 - 10:15 AM

Andre Benoit netted his first goal as a member of the Sabres on Tuesday night.

He scored a shorthanded goal in the second period to give Buffalo a 3-1 lead, but Detroit's power play got the last laugh in the third when it struck three times to break the game wide open. Benoit has produced four points in 25 games.
Dec 24 - 10:02 AM

Chris Stewart registered just his fourth goal of the season Tuesday as the Sabres were beaten by Detroit by a score of 6-3.

Stewart's production thus far has been a major disappointment for the fantasy players who believed he could take advantage of being a big fish in the small pond that is Buffalo. With just eight points in 34 games it's fair to say he hasn't lived up to expectations. Andre Benoit and Nicolas Deslauriers also scored for the Sabres in the losing effort.
Dec 24 - 12:02 AM

Michal Neuvirth was beaten for six goals on 39 shots Tuesday as the Sabres were blasted by the Red Wings by a score of 6-3.

The former member of the Capitals has now allowed 11 goals in his past two appearances and has dropped three straight decisions. He sports a 3.29 GAA to go along with a .909 save percentage and a 3-8-1 record. Teammate Jhonas Enroth has been the better netminder of late and should get the nod in the team's next game.
Dec 23 - 11:59 PM

After missing the weekend pair of games due to illness, Patrick Kaleta will return to the Sabres' lineup Tuesday night against the Red Wings

He's expected to lineup on the fourth line to the right of Johan Larsson and Tim Schaller. The Sabres have been decimated by injury and illness of late and Coach Nolan had some advice, "You just have to look at it as an opportunity to do something special with a short bench."
Dec 23 - 7:13 PM

Michal Neuvirth is Buffalo's probable starter on Tuesday night.

He was the first goalie off the ice, so he's expected to be in goal. Neuvirth stopped 31 of 36 shots in a 5-1 loss to Winnipeg on Dec. 16 in his last contest. He has three wins, a .915 save percentage and a 3.06 GAA in 12 appearances this campaign.
Dec 23 - 4:21 PM

Matt Moulson (illness) didn't travel with his teammates to Detroit.

He will sit out a third straight game because of an illness. Moulson has been experiencing flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day.
Dec 23 - 11:20 AM

Marcus Foligno (hand) is projected to miss "months," according to coach Ted Nolan,

He suffered a hand injury in a fight with Bruins defenseman Matt Bartkowski on Sunday. Foligno had been showing some signs of improvement lately with a three-game point streak from Dec. 11-Dec. 15. However, he still has a long way to go before he's viable in fantasy leagues.
Dec 23 - 11:16 AM

Tyler Myers (lower body) is out on a week-to-week basis, according to coach Ted Nolan.

He suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday and missed Sunday's game versus Boston as a result. Myers has been disappointing again this season. He has produced just eight points in 32 contests to go with a minus-4 rating and 71 blocks.
Dec 23 - 11:11 AM

Joel Armia has been called up by Buffalo.

He will make his NHL debut Tuesday night versus Detroit. Armia just returned to Rochester's lineup last week after he missed nine games with an upper-body injury. He has notched seven goals and 16 points in 21 AHL games this year.
