Sabres' Foligno to miss opener vs. Red Wings

Buffalo Sabres coach Ron Rolston revealed Tuesday that promising young winger Marcus Foligno will not be suiting up for the team's season opener Wednesday night in Detroit against the Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN). He also added that the 22-year-old was "not for sure" to play in the team's back-to-back games this weekend, Friday night at home against the Ottawa Senators and in Pittsburgh against the Penguins on Saturday.

Foligno has not played since sustaining an upper-body strain in the team's 5-3 preseason loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sept. 22. Prior to the injury, Foligno had enjoyed a strong preseason for the Sabres, collecting three goals and four points in three games. He has been skating both alone and with the team, but has been sporting a red non-contact jersey.

"He's been skating and we've been trying him every morning," Rolston said. "He's been going out in the morning and trying it, but it's just not where it needs to be to put him in that situation where if he gets bumped [it could] set him back further."

Pair of '12 picks may be tandem for Sabres vs. Wings

It appears as though Buffalo Sabres coach Ron Rolston will give a pair of 2012 first-round picks a chance to star on the same line to open the 2013-14 season against the Detroit Red Wings in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game at Joe Louis Arena (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

Mikhail Grigorenko, selected No. 12 in the 2012 NHL Draft, and Zemgus Girgensons (No. 14, 2012) were skating on the team's third line during the morning skate at Joe Louis Arena.

"I got some confidence from last year, so I think this year is going to be a lot better," Grigorenko told The Buffalo News. "I just want to prove to the coaches that they need me and do what I can do best, which is create offense, work hard and just show him that I can be really helpful for this team."

The New Jersey Devils set their 23-man roster on Monday by assigning Cam Janssen to the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League after the right wing cleared waivers. In addition, left wing Patrik Elias was placed on injured reserve retroactive to last Wednesday and right wing Mattias Tedenby was designated an injured non-roster player.

Elias is eligible to come off IR on Wednesday and the move was made as a precaution to get the team at the 23-man limit by 5 p.m. Monday. General manager Lou Lamoriello is hopeful Elias will be ready for the Devils' opener Friday night in Newark against the New York Islanders.

Hurricanes send Murphy to AHL

The Carolina Hurricanes on Monday assigned defenseman Ryan Murphy to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

The No. 12 pick of the 2011 NHL Draft spent the past four seasons with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, totaling 220 points in 228 games. He made his NHL debut last season as an emergency recall, and while he didn't have a point, he averaged 21:03 of ice time per game.

"I got four games in with the Hurricanes and it was a bit unexpected, but great nonetheless," Murphy told NHL.com in September. "I learned a lot in just that little bit of time and then went back to my club team in Kitchener. I tried to keep that pace up."

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.

— Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl on finishing the 2014-15 season in juniors after playing 37 games with Edmonton to begin the season
