Right Wing

Buffalo Sabres

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.

Okposo (bruised knee) will not play in the Sabres’ season opener.

Okposo has been trying to work his way back from a bruised knee he suffered in the preseason, but he wasn’t on the ice for Wednesday’s practice and will miss Thursday’s game. Consider him day-to-day and monitor his status prior to Sunday’s game in Edmonton.

Okposo (knee) missed Tuesday’s practice and is questionable for the season opener.

Okposo was already questionable for the season opener and each additional practice that he misses leading up to Thursday further clouds his status. The Sabres may also be without Ryan O’Reilly, which would put them without two-thirds of their top line. Monitor Okposo’s status on Wednesday and during Thursday’s morning skate.
