Dahlin (lower body) is in the projected lineup for Thursday's season opener versus Montreal, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Dahlin was dealing with a soft tissue issue toward the end of training camp, but he was never expected to be unavailable for Thursday's contest. The first overall pick from the 2018 Draft will skate on the Sabres' top pairing and first power-play unit against the Canadiens.
