    INJURY ALERT: IR | Illness |
    • Placed on IR Tuesday

      News: Cody McCormick (illness) was placed on IR Tuesday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
      Analysis: Cody McCormick was declared out indefinitely on Sept. 18 after failing his physical due to the presence of blood clots, an ailment that began last season and limited him to just 33 games in 2014-15. The Sabres didn't place McCormick on long-term IR, however, which is encouraging, as it indicates they may be expecting the 32-year-old winger to return to action sooner rather than later. Once healthy, McCormick is expected to assume a bottom-six role with the Sabres in 2015-16.

      Analysis: Cody McCormick's participation was likely limited, as it's generally been speculated that he won't play again this season.

    • Season Likely Over For Sabres' McCormick

      News: Cody McCormick, who has only played 33 games this season due to blood clots, appears unlikely to return the rest of the way this season, The Buffalo News reports.
      Analysis: That said, Cody McCormick also seems happy the problem has been pinpointed and is hopeful to return at full strength next season. Assuming that's the case, he'll finish is 2014-15 campaign with four points, 40 penalty minutes, 77 hits, and 29 blocks.
    • Sabres' McCormick Likely Out For Season

      News: McComick, who had been hospitalized due to a blood clot in his leg, appears likely to miss the rest of the season, the Sabres' official site reports.
      Analysis: Though Cody McCormick was discharged from the hospital last week, coach Ted Nolan doesn't think that the forward will return to action before the conclusion of the season. "It looks like he's out for the year," Nolan indicated Sunday. "There's nothing official, but that was one of the remarks I heard right at the beginning when he was in the hospital. So right now, I'm not banking on him coming back." Who will replace McCormick full-time remains to be seen with Phil Varone and Matt Ellis demoted Monday. The fourth-line agitator has been one of the Sabres better veteran players this season and his presence will be missed. However, this does open the door for youngsters such as Mikhail Grigorenko or Johan Larsson to make a further impression in the NHL. The Sabres will likely use the All-Star break to re-evaluate the roster.

      Analysis: Cody McCormick has been nursing a lower-body injury but hasn't missed any time since late December. The blood clot diagnosis is obviously concerning, and his timetable for return is undetermined at this point. For now, his biggest concern likely involves getting the blood clot removed. For the Sabres, this means a spot in the lineup has opened up for someone such as Mikhail Grigorenko or Phil Varone to stick around a little longer. Varone has been more impressive recently and has the edge for now.
