LOS ANGELES - Conor Sheary will return to the lineup when the Sabres visit the Los Angeles Kings tonight at Staple Center.
Sheary has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury. He tallied three points (2+1) in three contests on a line with Casey Mittelstadt and Jimmy Vesey, whom he'll skate with against the Kings.
"Conor's like a sparkplug, just kind of darting in and out of situations, a hard-working guy, good skater, good skill set," Sabres coach Ralph Krueger said.
"I think him coming into the lineup today will add some punch. He'll be working on our second power-play unit too, so we're looking forward to just seeing what he can bring."
