Sabres' Foligno Will Return Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno (lower body) will return Tuesday to play against the Red Wings.
Analysis: The Sabres are limping to the finish line with 12 other players on the injury report at the moment, but Marcus Foligno's return will provide at least some relief. He was initially projected to miss the rest of the season after sustaining a lower-body injury last Thursday, but felt good while taking part in the team's practice Sunday.

Sabres' Foligno Takes The Ice

News: Marcus Foligno (lower body) skated with his teammates Sunday morning, the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Initially there were fears that Marcus Foligno might be lost for the season, but after taking the ice Sunday, it appears as though he could return to action as soon as Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

Sabres' Foligno Out Friday

News: Marcus Foligno (lower body) won't play Friday, but Sabres coach Ted Nolan said that the forward's prognosis is better than the team originally thought.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was previously believed to be out for the season, but this opens up the possibility of a return for the last few games.

Sabres' Foligno Out For Season

News: Marcus Foligno is dealing with a lower-body injury and will not play again this season, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Sabres coach Ted Nolan said the injury may not be "too, too serious," but either way, we won't see Marcus Foligno again until next season. He finishes 2013-14 with seven goals, 10 assists, 76 shots on goal, one power-play point and three game-winning goals. Oddly enough, Foligno's brother, Nick, also suffered an injury Thursday night.

Sabres' Foligno Joins Top Line

News: Mired in a losing streak, the Sabres changed up their lines Wednesday at practice and had Marcus Foligno on the top line.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno joins Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford, two of the Sabres' hottest players of late. Cory Conacher gets demoted to the second line after a poor game against Calgary. Head coach Ted Nolan likes Foligno's presence around the net and feels he's better suited to score the "garbage goals" with Ennis and Stafford creating plays on the perimeter. Foligno is having yet another up-and-down season, but he does have the ability to capitalize on chances. For the time being, take a wait-and-see approach with Foligno.

Sabres' Foligno Snaps Eight-Game Drought

News: After going eight games without a point, Marcus Foligno collected a goal and assist Thursday against Tampa Bay.
Analysis: His last point came on Jan. 28 and his last goal on Jan. 25. Marcus Foligno played inspired hockey Thursday, including a highlight-reel assist on Cody Hodgson's goal. Foligno's play has been up and down since he earned a regular spot with the Sabres, but head coach Ted Nolan said after the game that he expects Foligno to play a big role moving forward. Foligno's fantasy value is minimal right now, but he certainly still has some raw upside. He could be a late-round target for fantasy owners next year.

Sabres' Foligno Benched Thursday

News: Marcus Foligno was a healthy scratch for Thursday's loss to Ottawa, according to The Buffalo News. Said coach Ted Nolan, "He's a young player. He has to learn to play on a consistent basis. You can't do it sometimes. He's got to learn to do it all the time, and the only way you're going to try to get a message to him, the only thing we have now, is ice time."
Analysis: Marcus Foligno, after showing some very promising signs a couple of years ago, has never really hit that stride again and seems to be regressing, as he sits with an awful line of 14 points in 51 games and an unsightly minus-15 rating. He's young enough and talented enough where there's time to turn it around, but he should be nowhere near anyone's fantasy lineup right now.

Sabres' Foligno Ready To Return

News: Marcus Foligno (undisclosed issue) is ready to return to the Sabres' lineup.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno -- who has 11 points and a minus-10 rating in 41 games to date -- indicated Friday that he is "all better now" and looking forward to returning to the team's lineup Saturday against the Blue Jackets.

Sabres' Foligno Out For Wednesday

News: Marcus Foligno (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The nature of Marcus Foligno's injury is unknown, but the Sabres are labeling him as day-to-day. Fortunately, the Sabres will welcome Drew Stafford (upper body) back to the lineup Wednesday to take his place.

Sabres' Foligno Good To Go For Friday

News: Marcus Foligno (illness) was back on the ice for morning skate and looks to be available for Friday's game vs. the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was one of four Sabres players to miss Monday's overtime victory over the Coyotes on account of the flu. Each of the skaters was back on the ice for the morning session and all look to be fully recuperated following the three-day break in the NHL schedule for Christmas.

Sabres' Foligno (Illness) Out Monday

News: Marcus Foligno (illness) will not play Monday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno joins a host of teammates scratched due to illness Monday, leaving the Sabres badly shorthanded. The 22-year-old Foligno has recorded a goal in two of his last three games after suffering through a 12-game scoreless streak.

Sabres' Foligno With Two Points In 4-2 Win

News: Marcus Foligno notched a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno has a goal in both of his last two contests, after suffering through an 11-game stretch without any points. He put up six points over six games at one point in October, before returning to his typically unproductive ways. Still just 22 years old, Foligno has yet to earn top-six forward status, despite playing for one of the worst teams in the league.

Sabres' Foligno Dresses Against Habs

News: Marcus Foligno's teammate Matt D'Agostini did not take the pre-game skate with the Sabres on Wednesday, enabling Foligno to play after it was believed that he would be the odd-man out.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno has struggled this year with three goals in 22 games. He played a season-low 7:33 in the Sabres' previous game and was in interim head coach Ted Nolan's doghouse, but with D'Agostini not available for the pre-game skate, Foligno stays in the lineup. If Foligno plays poorly again a banishment to the press box could be on the horizon. Foligno will play on the fourth line with Brian Flynn and John Scott.

Foligno in Sabres' Doghouse

News: Marcus Foligno, playing left wing on the fourth line, played a season-low 7:33 Sunday against Detroit.
Analysis: Since earning a roster spot with 13 points in 14 games in 2012, Marcus Foligno's play with the Sabres has been up and down. Last season, Foligno was a healthy scratch for one game under Lindy Ruff, and if his poor play continues he could end up sitting under Ted Nolan, too. Foligno has scored just once in November and his minus-9 rating is second-worst on the team among forwards. The son of famed Sabre Mike Foligno has played himself off the fantasy radar this season.

Foligno Grabs Goal For Sabres

News: Marcus Foligno potted his third goal of the season in Friday's win over Toronto, giving him seven points on the season.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno has a modest three goals on the season, but the Sabres have struggled to score all around. The team won its first game under their new coaching regime and Foligno should see opportunities to score going forward.

Sabres' Foligno Could Sit Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno's poor play in a 6-3 loss against the Ducks Saturday night could lead to a press-box demotion in Tuesday night's game against the Sharks, WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: Before Saturday night's game against the Ducks, Marcus Foligno was one of Buffalo's better players, but head coach Ron Rolston has already crafted a reputation for shuffling lines and having little patience. A natural left winger, Foligno was playing out of position at center and the loss against the Ducks can't be placed solely on his shoulders. Mikhail Grigorenko took Foligno's spot between Steve Ott and Corey Tropp on the second line.

Sabres' Foligno Returns, Fights

News: Marcus Foligno made his return to the ice Tuesday after missing the Sabres' first two games with an upper-body injury. He skated 20:21, put one shot on goal, was credited with seven hits and collected five penalty minutes for fighting.
Analysis: That's a lot of minutes for a guy who hasn't necessarily shown the greatest of offensive upside outside of a 14-game debut with Buffalo in 2011-12 in which he scored a surprising 13 points. Whie he does have some offensive skills, Marcus Foligno was never a gamebreaking scorer in juniors or the AHL, and it appears that to this point, his mind is set more to physical play than scoring.

Sabres' Foligno To Return Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno has been taking full contact in practice, so he's good to go. In 47 games last season, he scored five goals and added 13 assists for the Sabres; similar contributions are to be expected this year.

Sabres' Foligno Practices

News: Marcus Foligno (upper body) practiced with the team Thursday.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was still wearing a red no-contact jersey at practice, but he was able to do some stick handling and shooting drills. He said he doesn't expect to be available for Friday or Saturday's games, and is currently eyeing Tuesday's game against the Lightning for a return.

Sabres' Foligno (Upper Body) Placed On IR

News: Marcus Foligno (upper body) was placed on injured reserve to begin the season, the Buffalo Times-Herald's Bill Hoppe reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was thought to be available for the Sabres' season opener on Wednesday, but instead he'll be given extra time to recover from the upper-body strain. When he is able to return, he will step into a top-line spot for the Sabres.

Sabres' Foligno (Upper Body) Likely To Play Wednesday

News: Marcus Foligno (upper body) is expected to be available for Wednesday's season opener against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno sat out Wednesday's and Friday's preseason contests to recover from an upper-body strain and it looks like he's progressing as the Sabres had hoped. The 22-year-old is expected to assume a top-line role for the Sabres this season after totaling 18 points and 41 PIMs over 47 games in 2012-13.

Sabres' Foligno To Sit Wednesday

News: Marcus Foligno (upper-body strain) will not play in Wednesday's preseason game against Columbus, according to The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Coach Ron Rolston doesn't expect his young forward to be ready for Friday's preseason tilt either, though he does expect Marcus Foligno to be healed in time for next week's opener in Detroit. We'll see if he's done enough this offseason to get some top-six playing time when the real games begin.

Sabres' Foligno: Possible Shoulder Injury

News: Marcus Foligno is thought to have suffered a shoulder injury and is undergoing evaluation, according to The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno is trying to land a spot on the top line, but he's young enough at 22 that the preseason action is still important.

Sabres' Foligno Seizing Opportunity

News: Marcus Foligno has scored three times through two preseason games and has seen most of his time on the top line, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno had a disappointing 2012-13 campaign with just 18 points, but he's shown a scorer's touch at times and finished the 2011-12 season on absolute fire. Keep tabs on him and see if he can win that top-line spot with Thomas Vanek and Cody Hodgson to start the season.

Sabres' Foligno Sees Top Line Audition

News: Marcus Foligno, who ended last year at center, skated as the top-line left winger during Thursday's practice, according to The Buffalo News. Said Foligno: "That's where I'm most comfortable but center or wing doesn't matter. I'm happy to be on the wing though. Board play is kind of where my size comes in and I can get the pucks out and get up ice quicker."
Analysis: Things change fairly often throughout camp and the preseason, but if Marcus Foligno did earn a spot on the top line it would give him a chance to improve greatly upon his 18-point season in 2012-13. To begin camp, he was skating with Cody Hodgson at center and Thomas Vanek on the right wing.
