Buffalo Sabres Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Bogosian scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.
Impact: He hadn't hit the scoresheet in 11 straight games coming into Monday, Bogosian broke out by doubling his point total on the season. The 28-year-old blueliner had only two goals and 12 points in 74 games over the two prior campaigns, so don't expect too many more performances like this one going forward.
News: Okposo picked up two assists in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.
Impact: The 30-year-old was instrumental in the Sabres' comeback from a 4-1 deficit, including setting up Casey Mittelstadt for the tying goal midway through the third period. Okposo has heated up a bit lately, scoring one goal and five points in his last five games, but his overall numbers (five goals and 13 points in 21 games) aren't too far off the usual production he's provided Buffalo over the last two seasons.
News: Eichel scored the game-winner in overtime and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 win over the Penguins.
Impact: It's his fifth multi-point performance in his last seven games, pushing the fourth-year center's numbers on the season to five goals and 24 points through 21 contests. The addition of Jeff Skinner alongside Eichel has taken a lot of pressure off the 2015 second overall pick, and his reduced goal-scoring pace should turn around once his puck luck improves -- his 5.8 percent shooting is nearly five points below his career rate.
News: Hutton stopped 36 of 40 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.
Impact: He's now picked up the win in five straight games, posting a .936 save percentage over that stretch. Hutton's proving to be streaky in his first full season as an NHL starting goalie -- he lost three straight right before his winning streak -- but the overall results suggest the Sabres made the right decision when they signed him away from the Blues in the offseason.
News: Scandella (undisclosed) will not return to Monday's game in Pittsburgh.
Impact: Scandella must have been injured during the second period but the severity of the injury is still unknown. The 28-year-old blueliner has a goal and four assists in 20 games this season.
News: McCabe scored a goal and assist in Monday's win over Minnesota.
Impact: McCabe snapped a seven game drought, and is now up to nine points on the season. He has been playing on the top pairing, and should easily surpass last year's 12 point total. He's on pace for 38 points, which would shatter his previous career high of 20 points that he set in 2016-17.
News: Bogosian will look to snap his 11 game point drought Monday in Pittsburgh.
Impact: Bogosian isn't known for his scoring touch, but he did begin the season with two points in his first four games. He's in a position to succeed on a surging Sabres squad, where he plays on a pairing with Rasmus Dahlin. It's still remarkable that he's back to playing in a top four role after only appearing in 18 games last year, but it'd be nice to see him chip in with offense from time to time.
News: Hutton will start Monday's game in Pittsburgh, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Impact: The Sabres' netminder has been a surprisingly solid option this season and owns a record of 8-6-1 to go along with a 2.52 GAA and a .919 save percentage. The Penguins, meanwhile, have lost three straight and come into Monday's game having won just once in their last nine games.
News: Pilut, with 22 points in 15 games, is currently tied for the AHL lead in scoring.
Impact: The 22-year-old Swede now has points in seven straight games and he leads the league in assists with 19. Signed by the Sabres as an undrafted free agent in May, Pilut has exceeded even the most optimistic expectations in his first season in North America. Given how well he is playing, Buffalo may be forced to give Pilut a look in the very near future.
