Sabres notes: Rasmus Ristolainen has warm memories of Buffalo

BUFFALO – In his first nine seasons, ex-Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen has endured more chaos and losing than any NHL player. The Sabres employed six coaches and four general managers during Ristolainen’s eight-year tenure, finishing dead last four times. When the Sabres traded Ristolainen to the Philadelphia Flyers on July 23, it appeared he might finally have an opportunity to play for a contender and experience postseason hockey. Instead, the Finn joined a team that ... Read the full article

Sabres’ Peyton Krebs scores first NHL goals in win: ‘A pretty special talent’

BUFFALO – The play in Saturday afternoon’s 6-3 win that illustrates the special talent the Sabres possess in center Peyton Krebs wasn’t the goal he scored 18 minutes into the game, the first of his NHL career, or his nifty breakaway score minutes later. Of course, in scoring twice in a span of 4 minutes, 24 seconds, Krebs, 20, displayed the supreme hockey sense and terrific skill set that make him such a coveted young ... Read the full article

Sabres’ Jack Quinn to miss at least four weeks with lower-body injury

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Jack Quinn, who suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday’s 5-4 loss to the Dallas Stars, will be sidelined at least four weeks, coach Don Granato said. “The injury he has, there’s a window between week four and six that you can really get a gauge where he’s at,” Granato said prior to this afternoon’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers at KeyBank Center. “It looks like it’s going to be at ...

Sabres goalie Craig Anderson could be nearing return from upper-body injury

BUFFALO – Craig Anderson has never had a timetable for his recovery from an upper-body injury. The Sabres goalie has experienced good days and bad ones and starts and stops over the past 11 weeks. Anderson, 40, said he’s still working through the injury, believed to be around the head or neck area, that has sidelined him the last 30 games. But Anderson might’ve turned a corner Friday when he practiced for the first time ... Read the full article

Weird Sabres Goals Throughout History

Weird Sabres Goals Throughout History

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports The Sabres have had their fair share of odd goals over the years. Mark Jankowski’s odd goal on Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators certainly got people talking! It’s no surprise - it was a weird sequence, with nearly every player on the ice forming a crowd near the benches, while Jankowski found the puck and went in to score, all without a whistle on the play. Throughout Buffalo Sabres history, the team has scored some odd goals over the years. With your help, let’s take a look back at some of the other strange goals that...

Sabres’ Jack Quinn suffers lower-body injury; Craig Anderson practices

BUFFALO – If Jack Quinn hadn’t suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday’s 5-4 loss to the Dallas Stars, he likely would’ve kept playing for the Sabres in the coming weeks. The Sabres, of course, won’t simply award their prospects a spot. But given their rash of injuries and that Quinn, 20, scored his first NHL goal and assisted on another Thursday, he almost certainly would’ve earned a long look. Instead, Quinn, who finished his second ... Read the full article

Rasmus Dahlin, Jack Quinn and others give glimpse of Sabres’ future in loss

BUFFALO – Sabres rookie Jack Quinn scored his first NHL goal Thursday, a lethal wrist shot he wired under the crossbar from the right circle, four minutes after defenseman Rasmus Dahlin’s highlight-reel goal opened the scoring. Dahlin, who slickly moved in from the point to score, created Quinn’s goal by deftly feeding him a between-the-legs backhand pass. Early in the second period, center Dylan Cozens put the Sabres up two goals, zooming through the slot ... Read the full article

Sabres notes: Casey Mittelstadt close to playing; Buffalo has long injury list

BUFFALO – Casey Mittelstadt has never experienced anything like this season.

Sabres goalie Malcolm Subban likely out for season after having surgery

BUFFALO – When Sabres goalie Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen suffered a lower-body injury Jan. 11, a career-changing opportunity materialized for Malcolm Subban. The Sabres, having lost three goalies, would need to utilize Subban, 28, as their starter. The net, for the time being at least, appeared to be his. Then about 16 minutes into his relief appearance that night, 6-foot-3, 238-pound Tampa Lightning winger Patrick Maroon fell on Subban. The freak accident injured Subban. Despite being ...
