Update (8:02 p.m.) - The Sabres have announced that Dylan Cozens has been cleared to play in the Prospects Challenge. He will be in the lineup against the New Jersey Devils on Friday.
Dylan Cozens was a full participant in practice on Thursday as the Sabres took the ice in preparation for this weekend's Prospects Challenge at Harborcenter.
Cozens, Buffalo's pick with the seventh overall selection in this summer's draft, was left off the team's initial roster for the event as he recovered from a procedure on his left thumb. He had been wearing a red no-contact jersey at informal skates prior to Thursday.
"I think it's feeling normal right now, just being with the guys again, going out, practicing, being treated like another normal player," he said. "Not wearing a red jersey, I think that's big. I'm feeling good right now."
