      Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Will not play Wednesday

      Pysyk (lower body) is still "not ready" to return to the lineup and will miss Wednesday's game. Pysyk will miss his fourth straight game with a bone bruise in his lower body. The young defenseman has played mostly on the third pairing this season and has one assist in 18 games. An outstanding puck-moving defenseman in major junior, Pysyk has yet to realize his offensive potential in the pros. Upon his return, he should slot back into the lineup right away, but continues to have minimal fantasy value.

      Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Out again Monday

      Pysyk (lower body) won't return Monday against the Blues, Bill Hoppe of reports. Pysyk remains without a definite timetable, leaving his status a bit unclear from game to game. Fortunately, he did skate at practice Monday and rotated in during line rushes, so it seems there's a chance he could return to the lineup for Wednesday's contest. More on his availability should become apparent when the game approaches, however.

      Sabres' Mark Pysyk: No timeline for return

      Pysyk (lower body) is still without a timeline for his return to action, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Pysyk won't play Saturday against the Stars, and could miss several more contests with a bone bruise he likely suffered in Tuesday's tilt against Dallas. The injury isn't expected to keep the 23-year-old blueliner out long term, as he's still listed as day-to-day with the ailment, but he'll probably need to log several full practices before drawing back into the Sabres' lineup.

      Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Day-to-day with lower-body injury

      Pysyk (lower body) is day-to-day, and will not play Thursday against the Blues, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports. It's been a disappointing start to the season for Pysyk, as the 23-year-old blueliner has only managed to tally a single assist in the first 18 games of 2015-16. He's now dealing with a lower-body issue that will hold him out of Thursday's tilt against the Blues. Pysyk is listed as day-to-day with the ailment, indicating he could potentially return to action Saturday against Dallas. Carlo Colaiacovo will draw into the Sabres' lineup for Thursday's game in Pysyk's absence.

      Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Cold streak continues

      Pysyk has yet to record a point in 12 games this season. He's doing the right things, which is why he's remained in the lineup, but thus far he's the only regular yet to register a point. The smooth-skating defenseman plays a very smart, two-way game, but despite scoring 125 points in his junior career, it's unlikely he'll make a huge impact on offense in the NHL.

    • Pysyk Inks Two-Year Deal With Sabres

      News: Mark Pysyk signed a two-year, $2.25 million contract with the Sabres on Tuesday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
      Analysis: It's a good deal for the Sabres, as Mark Pysyk is a promising young defenseman who is likely ready to spend most, if not all of the 2015-16 campaign with the big club. He suited up for seven games with Buffalo last season, tallying a total of three points in those contests. He spent most of 2014-15 with AHL Rochester, registering a total of 17 points in 54 games with the team. Despite collapsing during a basketball game late in the season, Pysyk should be ready to go in the fall. His fantasy value is limited due to his inexperience, and the Sabres will lean on Zach Bogosian and Rasmus Ristolainen on right defense instead.
    • Sabres' Pysyk To Play For AHL Club Friday

      News: Mark Pysyk told reporters that he will return to the ice for the AHL Rochester Americans on Friday night, Andrew Peters of TWC News Buffalo reports.
      Analysis: Psysk collapsed while playing pickup basketball back in February, and he has not played in a game since. The team believed he would miss the rest of the season, but he'll be back in the lineup Friday as the Americans take on the Utica Comets in the home regular season finale.
    • Sabres' Pysyk Hoping To Play For AHL Club Friday

      News: Mark Pysyk (undisclosed) resumed practicing with AHL Rochester on Tuesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
      Analysis: Mark Pysyk collapsed while playing pickup basketball February 28, and though he returned to practice in March, the defenseman suffered a setback and met with doctors for further testing. The extra time off appears to have done the trick for Pysyk, who hopes to practice over the next few days before entering the lineup for Rochester's game Friday. While the episode back in February was surely scary for Pysyk, doctors determined they found nothing abnormal about his condition other than that he was suffering from dehydration. He should be able to continue his hockey career without any further concern.
    • Sabres' Pysyk Likely Out Until Next Season

      News: Updating a previous report, Mark Pysyk will likely sit out the rest of the season for precautionary reasons, reports the Democrat and Chronicle. However, the reason for the collapse Pysyk had Feb. 28 remains undetermined.
      Analysis: Mark Pysyk has not played in a game since the incident. While tests have been done on his head and his heart, the young defenseman was still "not feeling well" as of Friday so the organization will likely just take the safer route and keep him out the rest of the way, though we'll note no official decision has been made yet. Hopefully this all passes by and the promising youngster can make his claim to a full-time roster spot in Buffalo come next training camp.
