Top Casey Fitzgerald News

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Suffers undisclosed injury

    Fitzgerald sustained an undisclosed injury that kept him out of Monday's practice session, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    At this point, Fitzgerald could miss Tuesday's preseason clash with the Hurricanes due to his undisclosed injury. Considering the defenseman was labeled day-to-day, he should be ready for Opening Night against the Senators on Oct. 13, though there has been no official confirmation. Even if Fitzgerald is given the all-clear, he is unlikely to offer significant fantasy value given his limited offensive upside.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Demoted to minors

    Fitzgerald was sent down to AHL Rochester on Friday.

    Fitzgerald has averaged just 12:55 of ice time over his last five contests, so his reassignment should be an opportunity for the defenseman to see more minutes. With Fitzgerald headed to the minors, one of Mark Pysyk, Will Butcher or Colin Miller figures to step into the lineup versus the Blackhawks on Friday.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Suiting up Sunday

    Fitzgerald (upper body) is in Sunday's lineup against the Rangers, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Fitzgerald will return after missing the last six contests with an upper-body issue. The 25-year-old rookie is averaging 17:36 of ice time with four assists over 21 career NHL games. He'll skate in a bottom-pair role Sunday.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Won't play Friday

    Fitzgerald (upper body) will miss out versus Washington on Friday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    While Fitzgerald was removed from injured reserve Wednesday, the Sabres are clearly taking a cautious approach to putting the blueliner back in the lineup. Even when he does return to action, the 25-year-old Massachusetts native is far from a lock for the lineup and could serve as a healthy scratch periodically.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Activated off injured reserve

    Fitzgerald (upper body) has been removed from injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    Fitzgerald was given medical clearance to play but won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Penguins. Still, the fact that the team took him off IR should clear the way for him to return to the lineup soon, perhaps as early as Friday's clash with Washington.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Won't be rushed back

    Although Fitzgerald (upper body) has been medically cleared to play, he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Pittsburgh, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Fitzgerald will likely need to log a few full practices before rejoining the lineup. The 25-year-old blueliner, who's been sidelined since March 10 with an upper-body injury, has picked up four assists through 21 games this season.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Cleared to play

    Fitzgerald (upper body) has been medically cleared to return, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Fitzgerald has been sidelined since March 10 and is currently on injured reserve. He may need a practice or two to get back up to game speed, but Fitzgerald could theoretically play as soon as Wednesday in Pittsburgh, as long as he's removed from IR first.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Moves to injured reserve

    Fitzgerald (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Fitzgerald was already ruled out for the Sabres' road trip in western Canada, so his move to injured reserve is no surprise. Colin Miller (undisclosed) was activated from IR in a corresponding move and should take Fitzgerald's place on defense going forward.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Won't travel with team

    Fitzgerald (upper body) is not expected to travel with the Sabres for their upcoming three-game road trip, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Fitzgerald is still looking for his first NHL goal despite having chipped in four helpers and 25 shots in 21 games this season. The 24-year-old defenseman's absence, fortunately, coincides with the return of Henri Jokiharju , who is two games back from a lower-body problem. Even once cleared to play, Fitzgerald is far from a lock for the lineup and may spend time as a healthy scratch or in the minors.

    Fitzgerald (upper body) won't play Sunday versus Toronto, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    The Sabres reassigned Fitzgerald to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Fitzgerald was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Monday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

    Fitzgerald has logged one goal and nine hits through his three NHL appearances this season. He will need to submit two negative tests to regain playing eligibility but, as a call-up, his window for NHL opportunities is closing quickly.

  • Sabres' Casey Fitzgerald: Recalled from minors

    Fitzgerald was promoted from AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

    WIth Jacob Bryson entering the league's COVID-19 protocols, the Sabres have added Fitzgerald to the active roster ahead of Wednesday's clash with New Jersey. If either Will Butcher (illness) or Colin Miller (undisclosed) is unable to go, the team will need to look further into its defensive depth for players, which will likely include Ethan Prow, who was added to the taxi squad. For his part, Fitzgerald has played in just one NHL game this year in which he recorded one assist, two shots and five PIM in 16:42 of ice time.
