Pilut (shoulder) is expected to return to the ice in mid-October.

Pilut's timeline after his shoulder surgery was 5-6 months, so it appears he is on track in his recovery. The defender should eventually push for a role with the Sabres this season, but will likely need to spend some time in the minors as well. Last season, the 22-year-old saw action in 33 contests for Buffalo, in which he notched one goal, five helpers and 37 shots while averaging 17:25 of ice time.
