The Buffalo Sabres will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs for a pair of preseason games this weekend, starting Friday night in Toronto. 

Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger said on Thursday that Friday's game roster would feature a mix of the two groups that hit the ice for practice at KeyBank Center. He's also looking to get a few players into both games this weekend. 

Here is Buffalo's roster for Friday: 

12 Kevin Porter
15 Jean-Sebastien Dea
17 Vladimir Sobotka
21 Kyle Okposo
25 Arttu Ruotsalainen
27 Curtis Lazar
37 Casey Mittelstadt
42 Dylan Cozens
43 Conor Sheary
49 C.J. Smith
72 Tage Thompson
81 Remi Elie

3 William Borgen
10 Henri Jokiharju
19 Jake McCabe
38 Zach Redmond
44 Brandon Hickey
58 John Gilmour
78 Jacob Bryson

35 Linus Ullmark
36 Andrew Hammond

It'll be a 7 p.m. faceoff from Scotiabank Arena.

Buffalo will play the Maple Leafs again on Saturday at KeyBank Center at 7 p.m. (tickets for that game are on sale now).

Sportsnet's feed of the broadcast will air on MSG for both games. 

After assigning forward Matej Pekar to the Barrie Colts on Wednesday, the Sabres have 51 players on their training camp roster (27 forwards, 18 defensemen and six goaltenders). Defenseman Brandon Montour will miss the rest of the preseason due to a hand injury while forward Scott Wilson and defenseman Casey Fitzgerald are day-to-day with lower-body injuries. Defensemen Zach Bogosian, Matt Hunwick, Lawrence Pilut and goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen are not participating in camp due to injuries.
