Buffalo Sabres

Okposo (personal) will be back in the Sabres lineup on Friday.

Okposo missed Wednesday’s game in Tampa Bay because of the birth of his daughter, but will replace Evan Rodrigues (upper-body) tonight in Florida. Okposo has scored 11 goals and 26 assists (37 points) in 61 games this season and will skate on a line with Zemgus Girgensons and Nick Baptiste.

Okposo (illness) will return to the Sabres' lineup on Tuesday.

Okposo missed the last two games with an illness, but will draw back into the lineup tonight in Vegas. Okposo has gotten off to a really slow start to the season, failing to record a point in six games—he has a minus-6 rating, four PIMS and 11 shots on goal. Tonight he will play on the second line with Ryan O’Reilly at centre and Sam Reinhart at left wing. He will also see time on the top power-play unit with Jack Eichel.

Okposo (illness) is a game-time decision on Thursday.

Okposo missed the Sabres’ morning skate due to an illness, but has not been ruled out for tonight’s game in San Jose. Because of the late puck-drop, it might be wise to avoid the veteran winger, but there’s also a good chance that he will play. Okposo has no points, six shots and a minus-6 rating in three games this season.

Okposo (illness) missed Monday’s practice; questionable for Tuesday’s game.

The Sabres took to the ice for practice on Monday, but Okposo did not participate because of an illness. Head coach Dan Bylsma spoke after practice and said he hopes Okposo will be good to go tomorrow—Matt Moulson skated in Okposo’s spot this morning.

Okposo (knee) could make his Sabres debut on Sunday.

After missing Thursday’s season opener, Okposo was on the ice on Friday and is encouraged that he will be in the lineup on Sunday. Okposo said that his knee swelled to the size of a beach ball—I don’t believe him—but it looks like he will be in the lineup in Edmonton this weekend. This is big news for a Sabres team that has already lost Jack Eichel and Evander Kane.
