BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — When the Buffalo Sabres hit the ice on Wednesday morning, two players joined them after missing time due to injuries. Defensemen Marco Scandella and Zach Bogosian both practiced with their teammates at KeyBank Center, days after the team returned from its trip to Sweden.
The biggest return was Bogosian who was skating at practice for the first time since April. Bogosian hasn't had the best luck when it comes to playing. He had initial hip surgery in the early part of 2018 that caused him to miss the rest of the season. He then had another hip surgery in April 2019 and has been re-habbing since. He's listed as week-to-week.
Scandella has missed the last six games following a lower-body injury. He's considered day-to-day which mean he could return to the lineup as soon as Thursday. Scandella has played in 11 games this season, scoring two goals and adding two assists.
The Sabres host the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday evening.
