Kyle Okposo News
Buffalo Sabres right wing Kyle Okposo skated away with his third career hat trick after the team picked apart the Red Wings on Thursday 6-3. The veteran had a pair of second-period goals and wrapped up his hat trick with an empty-netter. He became the third player in franchise history to record a hat trick at age 34 or older. Okposo's best days are clearly behind him, but he has been a solid force in a bottom-six role, notching six goals and 10 assists in 26 games this season. He is closing out 2022 with a bit of a hot streak, having put together a three-game scoring run.
Buffalo Sabres right wing Kyle Okposo will miss Thursday's matchup against Colorado with a lower-body injury. He is considered day-to-day with the injury. The veteran has had a decent campaign as a bottom-six forward with 11 points in 23 games, although he has slowed down considerably in recent weeks, and taking some time off might actually be good for him. Defenseman Jacob Bryson will also miss the contest with a lower-body problem and is considered day-to-day, while Vinnie Hinostroza (undisclosed) will return from a six-game absence. He will be a direct replacement for Okposo on the fourth line. With eight points collected in 15 games, Hinostroza has done reasonably well in limited minutes this season, but five of his points came in the first four games of the campaign, and he's not someone fantasy managers should target.
Buffalo Sabres right wing Kyle Okposo (lower body) will be back in the lineup Friday versus New Jersey. He returns after missing six games with a lower-body ailment. The Sabres captain will head to the fourth line to skate with Zemgus Girgensons and Tyson Jost. It looks like the team will try to ease him back into action because Okposo has actually played a solid role for the side this season, averaging 15:19 of ice time. The veteran winger has also seen plenty of success on the ice, bagging nine points in 14 appearances with 29 shots, 17 blocks and 15 hits.
Buffalo Sabres right wing Kyle Okposo will sit out Saturday's clash with the Bruins. He's dealing with what the team is calling "general soreness" and will miss his first game of the season. Okposo has quietly enjoyed a fine start to the season with nine points in 14 games. His absence is giving Jack Quinn a chance to rejoin the lineup after he sat out one match as a healthy scratch. Despite being forced to sit in the press box on Thursday versus Vegas, the 21-year-old has been pretty productive lately, collecting four points in five games. Quinn boasts one goal and four assists overall for the season with 11 games played.
