Kyle Okposo will be back in the lineup when the Sabres visit the Vancouver Canucks this afternoon at Rogers Arena.
Okposo has missed the last 10 games as he recovered from a concussion. He’ll skate on a line with Zemgus Girgensons and Johan Larsson, reuniting a trio that was one of the team’s most consistent during the month of October.
“They just play within the plan all the time,” Sabres coach Ralph Krueger said. “So, what it seems to do is just activate, for the guys on the bench somehow, a magnet to do the same. … When they don’t only do it in words but they do it in execution, it helps the group be more consistent.”
Krueger says #Sabres going with Carter Hutton in goal today. No wins since Oct. 22. He’s 0-5-3, 3.77/.883 in last eight — after a 6-0 start. Okposo returns. A 12-6 lineup with ERod/Miller scratched. pic.twitter.com/nXHY2T9z5Y
