Buffalo Sabres Forward Set to Return

The Buffalo Sabres are getting a boost, as captain Kyle Okposo is set to return for Friday's (Nov. 25) contest against the New Jersey Devils.

Getting Okposo back is very good news for the Sabres, as they are aiming to get back into the playoff race after a very rough stretch of play. Yet, they may be heading in the right direction on that front, as they have won their last two games after ending their eight-game losing streak. Okposo returning to the lineup only helps increase the chances of them continuing this solid stretch of play. 

Okposo has had a pretty solid start to the year, as he has a goal and nine points in 14 games played. Now that he is healthy, it will be intriguing to see how much his numbers improve from here.
