Josh Gorges News

Defenseman

Buffalo Sabres

Gorges (abdomen) will return to the Sabres’ lineup on Saturday.

Gorges has been sidelined since January 5th, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Senators. Gorges doesn’t have a lot of offensive upside as he comes into play with just one assist in 34 games. Where he has value is his 77 hits and 62 blocked shots.

Gorges (lower-body) will play on Thursday vs. the Senators.

Gorges had been battling a lower-body injury and at one point there was a chance that he would miss the start of the season. He appears to have made a quick recovery and practiced the last few days and will play tonight. Dan Bylsma said Gorges is “100 percent.”

Gorges (lower-body) is week-to-week and could miss the start of the regular season.

Gorges injury is not related to the knee he had surgery on, which is good news for the veteran defenseman, however the injury could still force him to miss regular season time. Gorges joins Zach Bogosian as injured Sabres’ defensemen who could miss the season opener. Those are both big losses for a young Buffalo team. Cody Franson and Rasmus Ristolainen will likely be leaned on to shoulder the load while Gorges and Bogosian recover.
