WGR 550: Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo suffered an upper-body injury Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens.

“He hasn’t had a setback, per se. I’d rather not get into the details of his progress or his rehab process. Our medical staff is trying to make the best decisions that they can on a daily basis, or a weekly basis for that matter, to get ick to where we can get him back in the lineup. And that’s what’s taking place.

“So it’s going to involve sometimes being on the ice. It’s going to involve sometimes being off the ice. And we’ll make those decisions accordingly.”

James Mirte: Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Travis Dermott missed practice yesterday with an illness.

  • Paul Hendrick: Dermott’s status for tonight hasn’t been determined yet. Will depend on how he feels today.
