  • Sabres' Marco Scandella: Hits ice for practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/17) Scandella (hip) returned to practice Friday, The Buffalo News reports.

    The Swords are easing their newcomer defenseman into hockey action following his surgical hip procedure performed over the summer. While he may be a new face to the Sabres, Scandella finds himself entering the eighth year of his NHL career. Eighty-nine points in 373 contests with the Wild doesn't inspire confidence in fantasy owners, but he's a decent shot blocker who can handle minutes in the low 20s.

    Sabres' Marco Scandella: Sitting out weekend games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/17) Scandella (hip) will not play during the weekend, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Scandella's hip is still bothering him after going under the knife over the summer and being put through tough skates during the first few days of training camp. There's no reason to panic, so he should be ready to go for the season opener against the Habs on Oct. 5.

    Sabres' Marco Scandella: Sitting out Monday's game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/17) Scandella (hip) will not play in Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina on Monday, The Buffalo News reports.

    Scandella had surgery on his left hip over the summer, and head coach Phil Housley said he's just "a little sore." The word out of Buffalo is that pace at camp has been very high with a particular emphasis on skating. It's not entirely surprising, considering Housley's preferred up-tempo style of play. Scandella also missed Sunday's skate but his hip is not believed to be a major issue and he should be ready to go for the season opener on Oct. 5.

    Sabres' Marco Scandella: Gearing up for training camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/17) Scandella (hip) will be healthy for the start of training camp.

    Scandella will have a chance to make a good impression on his new squad right away. He's not known for his offensive production, having recorded just four goals and nine assists last season, but he holds his own in the defensive zone and breaks the puck out well. The 27-year-old defenseman is projected as a second-pairing blueliner, a role in which he'll see about 19 minutes of ice time a game and help immensely on the penalty kill.

    Sabres' Marco Scandella: Heading to Western New York

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/17) Scandella (hip) was shipped to Buffalo from Minnesota on Friday -- along with Jason Pominville and a fourth-round pick in 2018 -- in a swap for Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno and a third-round pick in 2018, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    Scandella is still recovering from offseason hip surgery, but is expected to be ready in time for training camp. The 27-year-old registered just four goals and nine helpers on the year and ended 2016-17 on a 20-game pointless streak. The Sabres clearly didn't bring in the blueliner for his offensive contributions -- his career high is only 23 points -- but he should get more ice time than he did last season with Minnesota -- 18:20 per game. He provides a much-needed defensive presence for a Sabres defense that ranked among the worst in the league last year, and should be a staple on the penalty kill. The Sabres are now pretty stacked with left-shot defensemen in Jake McCabe, veteran Josh Gorges, newly acquired Nathan Beaulieu and promising rookie Brendan Guhle to go along with Scandella.
