Buffalo Sabres forward Tage Thompson exited Thursday's clash with the Senators early with an undisclosed injury, but he appears to have escaped a serious injury. "Tage, I think, will be OK," Sabres head coach Don Granato said postgame. "But we'll find out." Granato was full of praise for Thompson, who potted two goals in a 5-3 win. The 26-year-old did the damage in 12:27 of action and with five shots on goal. Injuries have tried to slow down Thompson this season, but it's still been a decent campaign for him with 14 goals and 13 assists in 32 appearances. He's bagged 12 points in his past nine outings.
Buffalo Sabres center Tage Thompson (upper body) will be out week-to-week. Thompson was injured in Tuesday's contest against Boston, and it was initially unclear how much time he will miss due to the injury, but know we know that Buffalo expects to have him back in less than two months. "Less than a couple of months is what's expected," Sabres head coach Don Granato said on Wednesday. "It's more week-to-week. I don't have a targeted date for him yet." With Thompson out of commission, Dylan Cozens could get a chance to center the first line. Alex Tuch (upper body) is expected to be back Friday, which would allow Cozens to shift to center after skating on Thompson's right wing.
Buffalo Sabres center Tage Thompson (upper body) is facing a long-term absence after getting hurt in Tuesday's matchup against Boston. He exited the game after getting hit on his left wrist by a puck. Thompson also left in the first period when he suffered a cut from a skate blade but was able to return. "Tage is going to miss some time here, probably significant time, unfortunately," Sabres head coach Don Granato said postgame. "He fought through the first injury but couldn't fight through the second one. Credit to him to battle but it's unfortunate." Thompson had a big breakthrough last season with a 94-point campaign and has posted 12 points (six goals, six assists) through 16 outings in 2023-24.
Buffalo Sabres center Tage Thompson extended his point streak to four games Wednesday with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win at Philadelphia. The goal and his second assist came in the third period when Buffalo turned a tie game into a comfortable victory. It's the second three-point effort of Thompson's current scoring streak, and he has provided four goals and four assists in total during the run. The 26-year-old had a very prolific campaign a season ago, and Thompson appears to have regained his scoring form after opening the 2023-24 campaign with only one point in six games.
