Buffalo Sabres

Girgensons could open the season on the Sabres’ top line.

Girgensons had a massive drop-off in production during the Dan Bylsma era, but it looks like he’ll get a fresh start with Phil Housley behind the bench. Girgensons has spent the first few days of training camp on the first line with Ryan O’Reilly and Kyle Okposo, which showcases the new regime’s belief in him. In 2014-15, while playing over 19 minutes per night, Girgensons had 15 goals and 15 assists (30 points) in 61 games—that’s a 20-20 pace over 82 games. He’s got the tools for be a top-6 forward and it looks like the Sabres will give him every chance possible to get his career back on-track.

Girgensons (undisclosed) is not on the ice for the morning skate; questionable for Tuesday's game.

Girgensons missed Monday’s practice and was not on the ice for the Sabres’ morning skate which suggests that he will not be in the lineup tonight vs. the Stars. If Girgensons can’t go, look for Tim Schaller to get back into the lineup.

Girgensons (undisclosed) missed Monday's practice; questionable for Tuesday.

Girgensons missed Monday’s practice with an undisclosed injury and could miss Tuesday’s game vs. the Stars. Girgensons was hit hard on Saturday which is likely the reason for today’s absence. Monitor his status on Tuesday morning, but his two points in 17 games has him well off of the fantasy radar right now.

Girgensons left Tuesday’s game with a foot injury and did not return.

Girgensons took a James Wisniewski slap-shot off of his right foot and was forced to leave the ice and did not return. It did not appear that Girgensons was able to put any weight on the foot, which is obviously not a good sign. Coach Ted Nolan is concerned that Girgensons injury could end his season, but he will await the official word from the Sabres medical staff.
