Bogosian was a workhorse in Wednesday's loss against Pittsburgh, logging 33:29 after Rasmus Ristolainen was ejected in the first period. Should Ristolainen face supplemental discipline, we now know whom head coach Dan Bylsma will lean on. Josh Gorges and Jake McCabe both skated over 20 minutes, but also around 10 minutes less than Bogosian, who finished with two hits and five blocked shots. The oft-injured defenseman has appeared in just 48 games this season, scoring eight points with a minus-19 rating, so there's minimal fantasy value to be had here. With the Sabres often going with a four-forward power play, Bogosian is averaging just seven seconds of man-advantage time this season -- by far the lowest mark of his career.
Bogosian (abdomen) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's divisional clash with Ottawa. After participating in Monday's practice and declaring his desire to return, Bogosian will get his wish. The defender will likely skate on Buffalo's third pairing, as the team tries to ease him back into action. The former third-overall pick has had a brutal season between injuries and poor play, recording just five points and a minus-13 rating in 30 games. However, Bogosian's most disappointing statistic may be his paltry 38 shots on goal in 2016-17, indicating that he is losing some of the lateral mobility that is crucial for getting shots off as a defenseman.
Bogosian (abdomen) told reporters he was ready to play, but has yet to officially been cleared to suit up against the Senators on Tuesday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. Bogosian has missed Buffalo's previous six outing while dealing with this ailment. The center did participate in practice Monday, which would be a good indicator he is nearing a return. The Sabres will need to activate the 26-year-old off injured reserve prior to puck-drop in Ottawa and could opt to place Cody Franson on IR in order to make room on the 23-man roster.
Bogosian (abdomen) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Bogosian has missed the past three contests, and he won't be eligible to return until this Saturday against host Toronto. Still, the Sabres have seven healthy defensemen on the active roster, meaning the Sabres can opt to start Josh Gorges and Taylor Fedun to round out the blue line in place of Bogo.
Bogosian (abdomen) is not in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Sharks. Bogosian misses his third straight contest to the injury that he suffered during Thursday's game. Taylor Fedun draws into the lineup Tuesday and will skate on the third defensive pairing with Josh Gorges.
