      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Will make season debut Tuesday

      Bogosian will make his season debut Tuesday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News. Bogosian has missed all of the Sabres' games this season with a lower-body injury and has a tough matchup ahead against the Dallas Stars. He averaged 26 minutes per game in 21 games with the Sabres last year and should be around that number once he gets back to full-speed. The big, burly defenseman will take a little pressure off Rasmus Ristolainen, who will likely remain as the team's No. 1 defenseman. Bogosian has little fantasy value due to his limited offensive abilities, but should be valuable in leagues that count blocked shots and hits.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Will return this week

      Bogosian (lower body) will return to the lineup at some point this week, and he hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday, The Buffalo News reports. Bogosian has yet to play this season, but continues to be a full participant in practice and indicated Monday that "I feel good." While he hasn't been confirmed as in the lineup yet, it seems as though there's a good chance his return will indeed come Tuesday. However, an update on his status for the contest should be provided at some point before the opening faceoff.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Undergoes first full practice since injury

      Bogosian (lower body) was a full-participant in practice on Friday, Jon Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. After skating Friday, Bogosian deemed himself day-to-day. He seems doubtful to suit up for Saturday's game though, as Friday was his first full practice since sustaining his injury. However, a return for Bogosian seems likely within the next week.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Will not travel on road trip

      Bogosian will not travel with the team, which means he will miss the next two games. Bogosian has yet to play for the Sabres this season and will miss Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay and Thursday's game against Florida, although head coach Dan Bylsma said "he is getting closer to returning." No date has been set yet but it's possible Bogosian returns from his lower-body injury by the end of the month. Upon his return, it's likely he'll be eased back into a top-four role slowly.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Returns to practice

      Bogosian (lower body) returned to practice Thursday, reports Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News. This is encouraging news for Bogosian, who has yet to play this season, and the Sabres, who sorely miss his presence. There's still no timetable for Bogosian's return other than the fact that he will need some time to get his skating legs back. Once he returns, expect him to return to his usual shutdown role on the top pairing. He doesn't score very often, but in deep leagues where peripherals count, he may be a decent addition.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Making improvements

      Bogosian (lower body) has been able to increase his workload, but still has not returned to practice, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. Bogosian was able to return to the ice nearly two weeks ago but hasn't been back since, so it's not an encouraging development for the defenseman. At this point, Tuesday's tilt against the Flyers would appear to be out of reach for his season debut, and he'll likely need to return to practice early in the week in order to suit up for Thursday's contest against the Penguins.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Still hasn't returned to practice

      Bogosian (upper body) still hasn't returned to practice,'s Joe Yerdon reports. Bogosian reportedly watched Friday's morning skate from the Sabres' bench in workout clothes, and has been limited to off-ice work since suffering an upper-body injury last Wednesday. He's still currently on injured reserve, but is eligible to return to action once healthy, whenever that may be. It's hard to imagine a scenario where Bogosian is able to slot into Buffalo's lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Devils.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Misses practice Monday

      Bogosian (lower body) did not practice Monday. Bogosian has yet to make his season debut after suffering a lower-body injury in the preseason, and it appears unlikely he'll be able to return for Wednesday's contest against the Maple Leafs unless he is able to return to practice within the next two days. His next chance to suit back up will come Friday against the Canadiens.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Misses practice again Friday

      Bogosian (lower body) missed his second straight practice Friday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Bogosian reportedly didn't suffer a setback when he returned to the ice Wednesday, but the skate didn't go as planned, so the 25-year-old defender has taken part in off-ice workouts rather than practicing over the last few days. It seems as though Bogosian is likely a long shot to suit up for Saturday's tilt against the Lightning.

      Sabres' Zach Bogosian: Returns to practice Wednesday

      Bogosian (lower body) returned to the ice on Wednesday, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports. This is the first time Bogosian has returned to the ice since going on the IR earlier in October. Bogosian came over from Winnipeg at the deadline last year and put up seven points in 21 games while registering a minus-7 rating. His return to the Buffalo blue line will likely spell the end of Rasmus Ristolainen in his current role.
