Sabres D Regehr returns after missing 7 games; LW Ellis placed on waivers

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Sabres defenceman Robyn Regehr has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to play against the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Regehr had missed seven games with a lower body injury from a 3-2 loss at Washington on Jan. 27. To make room on the roster, the Sabres (5-6-1) waived fourth-line forward Matt Ellis for reassignment to Rochester in the AHL.

Struggling defenceman Tyler Myers was a healthy scratch for a second consecutive game. Rookie centre Mikhail Grigorenko was a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

For the Bruins (7-1-1), centre Shawn Thornton returned after missing two games with a concussion. Also back were forwards Daniel Paille (upper body), who missed two games, and Brad Marchand (upper body), who missed one game.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
