Quick practice update

Here's the attendance report as the Sabres have just opened practice in First Niagara Center:

---Jason Pominville and Luke Adam are not here. They went directly to Montreal from Ottawa.

---Jochen Hecht and T.J. Brennan are not on the ice as they continue to battle their concussions.

---Brayden McNabb is back on the ice in his first workout with the team since getting concussed against the Leafs on Jan. 13, the night before the Sabres left for their road trip. Tyler Ennis is also skating on a line with Nathan Gerbe and Drew Stafford. We'll see if he returns tomorrow.

---The lines aren't that valid because Adam and Pominville aren't here. But for the record, it's Vanek-Roy-Gragnani, Gerbe-Ennis-Stafford, Kaleta-Boyes-Leino and McCormick-Gaustad-Ellis. The D pairs are Sekera-Myers, Weber-Regehr and Leopold-Ehrhoff.

Stay tuned for a full update after the workout ends.
