|(3/14/16) Girgensons skated with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart at Monday's practice, reports Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News.|
With Ryan O'Reilly (foot) skating in a non-contact jersey at practice and with all signs indicating for a return sooner than later, head coach Dan Bylsma took Evander Kane off the top line and plugged in Girgensons, putting all his kids on one line. Reinhart and Eichel have established incredible chemistry of late, and it's likely that Bylsma is hoping Girgensons' two-way, physical game can open up the ice. "Disco Dan" is a notorious line juggler, however, which means Girgensons' stint on the top line may be short, especially with just 14 points in 59 games on the season. Until Girgensons sticks with the line and starts scoring, he continues to be a very fringe fantasy asset.
