Report: Vanek will return to Sabres lineup Saturday

Friday, 03.22.2013 / 12:24 PM NHL.com

Buffalo Sabres forward Thomas Vanek expects to return from a one-game injury absence and play Saturday night at the Montreal Canadiens, according to a report by Buffalo News reporter John Vogl.

Vanek missed Thursday's 5-4 shootout win against the Toronto Maple Leafs with a lower-body injury. Sabres interim coach Ron Rolston told the media after the team's morning skate that Vanek was still sore from being hit with a shot in the second period of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.

Vanek leads the Sabres in scoring with 14 goals and 17 assists in 27 games.
