Sabres' Sam Reinhart to play in season opener

Buffalo Sabres center Sam Reinhart, No. 4 on the Top 60 prospect ranking, will remain with the Sabres for their season opener Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets at First Niagara Center.

Sabres coach Ted Nolan made the announcement after practice Monday.

"I can't predict how long [Reinhart] will be with us, but in training camp you just want to make sure you're doing the right thing with young players for their development," Nolan said. "We're also evaluating Nikita [Zadorov]. He's physically big enough and needs to work on parts of his game; we'll evaluate that decision."

Reinhart was chosen No. 2 by the Sabres in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Blackhawks' Sharp sad to see Leddy traded: report

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp didn't mince words when asked about the trade Saturday that sent defenseman Nick Leddy to the New York Islanders.

"It [stinks]. It [stinks] to see Nick leave the squad," Sharp said Sunday, according to CSN Chicago. "He's well-liked in the locker room. Everyone knows the quality player he is and the quality person. He's going to have a heck of a chance to become the star in the League we all think he's going to be. We've said it a thousand times – it's professional sports, it's part of the gig. You lose players every season and I think we've come to accept it."

Flyers' Simmonds 'up in the air' for opener: report

Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was wearing a walking boot on his left foot while watching practice Sunday in Orleans, Mass. His status for the regular-season opener against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday at TD Garden (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN) remains in question.

"Fifty-fifty? I can't put a number on it," Flyers coach Craig Berube told when asked about the chances that Simmonds would play. "He hasn't practiced. It depends. Everybody is different.

"Right now, he's out. And he hasn't practiced, so we'll see about [Monday]. If he can get on the ice [Monday] and then maybe practice the next day, maybe I'll consider putting him in [Wednesday]. I don't know. Right now it's up in the air."

Maple Leafs Kessel, Franson skate briefly: report

Injured forward Phil Kessel and defenseman Cody Franson skated Saturday but their status for the Toronto Maple Leafs season opener Wednesday is unknown.

Kessel, who has a lower-body injury, skated for about 20 minutes Saturday, the Toronto Sun reported.

"With Phil, sometimes the plan is different then ours," coach Randy Carlyle told the newspaper. "He came out, tried it, didn't feel it was 100 percent. ... The idea is that if you don’t practice, you don't play."

Franson skated for the first time since sustaining a knee injury in a preseason game Sept. 26. The regular season begins Oct. 8 against the Montreal Canadiens.
