Thursday, 6 April 2017 : Forward Kyle Okposo will miss the final three games of the Buffalo Sabres’ season with an undisclosed illness, coach Dan Bylsma said.
The Sabres also recalled Linus Ullmark from Rochester of the American Hockey League, one day after fellow goaltender Anders Nilsson was injured in practice.
Okposo collected 19 goals and 26 assists in 65 games after signing a seven-year, $42 million deal in the offseason. The 28-year-old power forward had recorded three straight seasons of at least 50 points with the New York Islanders.
The Columbus Blue Jackets signed defenseman Ryan Collins to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The team announced Collins will join the American Hockey League’s Cleveland Monsters prior to Friday’s game at Milwaukee.
