His status likely won't be known until the Sabres conduct their gameday skate Saturday morning.

Sabres' Strachan Aiming For Monday

News: Tyson Strachan (lower body) is aiming for a return to the lineup Monday against the Senators, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyson Strachan skated with the Sabres on Saturday morning for the first time since suffering the injury and is now being viewed as day-to-day. If he's able to get in a full practice Sunday, it might be enough for coach Ted Nolan to reinsert him in the lineup.

Sabres' Strachan Still 'A Ways Away' From Return

News: Coach Ted Nolan said after Wednesday's practice that Tyson Strachan (undisclosed) was "still a little ways away" from a return.
Analysis: Nolan's words would seem to rule out Tyson Strachan as an option for Thursday's game against the Flames. Either Andre Benoit or Andre Meszaros would likely get the call to replace him in the lineup.

Sabres' Strachan Likely Out Tuesday

News: Tyson Strachan (undisclosed) didn't take part in Tuesday's morning skate and looks like he'll miss the Sabres' game against the Kings, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: It was believed that Tyson Strachan would be good to go for Tuesday after taking a maintenance day Monday, but it appears he didn't make as much progress as coach Ted Nolan had anticipated. Look for Andre Benoit to substitute in for him on the Sabres' third pairing.

Sabres' Strachan Probable For Tuesday

News: Tyson Strachan will likely play Tuesday, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Tyson Strachan missed Monday's practice but head coach Ted Nolan indicated that he's likely a go for Tuesday. Strachan has served as a depth defensemen for a young Sabres team and has been playing lots of minutes with the team's other veteran defensemen sidelined for stretches. In 16 games this year Strachan has four assists and a minus-6 rating. He has little to no fantasy value.

Sabres' Strachan Picks Up Two Helpers Sunday

News: Tyson Strachan was credited with two assists in Sunday's win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Tyson Strachan was a healthy scratch for all but one of the Sabres' first 10 games, but he's played in appeared in each of the last three contests, filling in for Andrej Meszaros twice and Andre Benoit on Sunday. His strong showing against the Wings will most likely lock Strachan into the lineup on a regular basis, as it was by the far the best offensive output by any Sabres defenseman all season. Illustrating the vast ineptitude of the Sabres' defensive ranks, Strachan's two points matched the entire combined point total of the team's other seven blueliners over Buffalo's first 13 games.

Strachan Likely To Dress For Sabres Again

News: Tyson Strachan "will likely play again" on Saturday, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: It will be Tyson Strachan's third game for the Sabres, who has one assist on the season. The 30-year-old journeyman is nothing more than a depth player for the Sabres after signing a one-year contract with them this summer. Head coach Ted Nolan continues to go for experience over youth and talent by playing Strachan over Nikita Zadorov.

Sabres Sign Strachan

News: Tyson Strachan signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sabres on Thursday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN reports.
Analysis: The Sabres continue to stick more resources into shoring up their shoddy defense, as Tyson Strachan will join newly acquired blueliners Andrej Meszaros and Josh Gorges in Buffalo. Strachan won't have a guaranteed roster spot with the Sabres like those guys will, but he'll get to compete for a job as the club's sixth or seventh defenseman during training camp.
