  • With the Sabres being one of seven NHL teams that won't be part of the playoffs, Sobotka (knee) has played his last game of 2019-20 and will soon become an unrestricted free agent, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. The bottom liner only played in 16 games this season, logging there points and a plus-2 rating before a knee injury ended his season in November. The Sabres like what he brings to the penalty kill and re-signing him probably wouldn't prove costly, though the team is heavy on utility-type guys and at some point will have to pick and choose between a few of them in an effort to pick up some scoring elsewhere. Sobotka's career high in points is 33, achieved back in 2013-14 with the Blues.

  • Sobotka (knee) is expected to miss the rest of the 2019-20 campaign, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Sobotka was previously ruled out indefinitely but this latest news sets a clearer timeline for the center's recovery. In 16 contests prior to getting hurt, the 32-year-old notched one goal, two assists and 23 shots while averaging 14:16 of ice time. With his contract expiring at the end of the year, it's possible Sobotka has played his last game as a member of the Sabres.

  • Sobotka (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Sobotka will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks due to a knee injury, so this move was expected. The 32-year-old pivot's absence will test the Sabres' depth up front, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled 16 points in 85 games over the past two campaigns.

  • Sobotka will miss 4-6 weeks due to his lower-body injury. Sobotka was injured against the Lightning on Friday from a low hit from Nikita Kucherov and will now miss an extended chunk of time. Prior to getting hurt, the center was stuck in a five-game goal drought during which he registered just one assist and four shots. Conor Sheary figures to be promoted to a top-six role with Sobotka sidelined while Curtis Lazar was recalled from AHL Rochester.
