Corey Tropp and Patrick Kaleta are due back for the Buffalo Sabres. Kaleta is coming off his 10-game suspension while Tropp will rejoin the roster after being on injured reserve with a broken jaw.
But how those additions will specifically play out have yet to be seen.
"We'll see. They're available," Sabres coach Ron Rolston said when asked of Tropp and Kaleta would be in the lineup Saturday against Anaheim. "They both look good and they're available, so we'll see."
With Tropp coming off the injured reserved list, the Sabres will have to make a roster move today.
At practice Friday morning, there seemed to be no major line shakeups.
The top line of Matt Moulson Cody Hodgson and Tyler Ennis skated together while Tropp joined Steve Ott and Marcus Foligno.
Zemgus Girgensons and Johan Larsson skated with both Drew Stafford and Brian Flynn.
On the fourth line Mikhail Girgorenko and Cody McCormick worked with both Ville Leino and Kaleta.
Defensive pairings at practice were: Christian Ehrhoff-Mark Pysyk; Henrik Tallinder-Tyler Myers; Jamie McBain-Rasmus Ristolainen; and Nikita Zadorov-John Scott.
While Rolston said he would not comment on Scott's suspension, Scott did say he was not appealing his seven-game suspension. He has already served four games.
