      NHL Cap Hit: $75,682,541 Puckpedia Profile

      Comrie will start against the Panthers on Thursday.

      Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was originally expected to start but has been diagnosed with a lower-body injury so Eric Comrie will get his first start since December 5th, 2023. The 28-year-old will look to improve on his horrific overall season numbers as he is 1-5-0 with a 4.61 GAA and .863 SV%. He will host the red-hot Florida Panthers at home Thursday, who have won seven of their last eight games and lead the NHL in shots per game (34.1).

      Luukkonen (lower body) was originally expected to start but is now considered day-to-day.

      Luukkonen was originally expected to start after occupying the starter's crease at Thursday's morning skate but is now considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury and will not dress. The 24-year-old netminder has taken over the Sabres' starting crease this season with his strong play and 13-13-2 record, 2.51 GAA and .913 SV%.

      Quinn (lower body) has been placed on the Injured Reserve.

      Quinn is two weeks into his eight-week diagnosis of a lower-body injury and was placed on the Injured Reserve on Thursday as the Sabres recalled Dustin Tokarski from Rochester (AHL). The 22-year-old Quinn is likely close out his 2023-24 season with 12 points (5G/7A) in 17 games played.

      Tokarski has been recalled from Rochester (AHL).

      Tokarski was surprisingly called up from Rochester (AHL) on Thursday and will wait to see what it means for the rest of the Sabres' crease as they take on Florida. The 34-year-old has struggled in the AHL this season, with his 7-7-2 record, 3.47 GAA and .888 SV%. He last appeared in the NHL with Pittsburgh in 2022-23 and had a 1-2-0 record with a .897 SV%.

      Luukkonen will start against the Kings on Tuesday.

      Luukkonen will continue his reign over the Sabres' crease on Tuesday night, starting for the ninth time in their last 10 games. Despite being a clear favourite between the pipes, Luukkonen has a sub-.500 record in his last nine contests (4-5-0), due mostly to a lack of goal support as he has allowed three or fewer goals in each contest, posting an excellent .930 SV%.

      Olofsson will draw back into the Sabres' lineup on Tuesday vs. Los Angeles.

      Olofsson has not played since January 20th, missing five games, but will re-enter the lineup on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Kings. After posting a career-high 28 goals in 75 games last season, Olofsson has struggled offensively, tallying only 12 points (4G / 8A) through 33 games.

      Power did not complete practice on Monday, leaving early because of an undisclosed injury. After receiving imaging and further evaluations later in the day, he will be out on a week-to-week basis. The 21-year-old Power has 18 points (2G / 16A) in 51 games this season.

      Luukkonen is expected to start Saturday vs. St. Louis.

      Despite losing his last contest, the Sabres will turn to Luukkonen between the pipes for the third straight game on Saturday. Luukkonen was excellent in a 2-1 losing effort to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday, saving 28 of 38 shots (.933 SV%). The 24-year-old Luukkonen started the season as the third-string netminder for the Sabres but has deservedly earned his way into being the go-to guy between the pipes.

      Luukkonen will start Tuesday vs. Dallas.

      Luukkonen and the Sabres will return to the ice on Tuesday for their first game since the All-Star break. In his last outing, Luukkonen saved 23 of 25 shots in a 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks and has generally been the more relied-upon Sabres' netminder lately, starting seven of the last eight games (4-3-0). The Sabres are +144 home underdogs on Tuesday against the Dallas Stars, who have points in five straight games (4-0-1).

      Girgensons (lower body) is expected to return to the Sabres' lineup Tuesday vs. Dallas.

      Girgensons exited the Sabres' January 24th victory against the Los Angeles Kings in the first period with an upper-body injury after playing only 1:01 time-on-ice. The 30-year-old Girgensons has four points (4G / 0A) in 31 games. Before his injury, Girgensons was seeing increased offensive deployment, including some time in the top six.
