Sabres' Foligno (Shoulder) Will Play Saturday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) is expected to play Saturday against Toronto, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno made a premature return from a shoulder injury Tuesday but was put back on the bench with concern that he hadn't made a full recovery. He is currently expected to rejoin the third line against the Maple Leafs on Saturday, however.

Sabres' Foligno To Sit Thursday

News: Marcus Foligno will be scratched from Thursday's lineup due to the team's concern that he isn't fully recovered from his recent shoulder injury, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: After a four-game absence, Marcus Foligno returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Blues, but looked quite lethargic in his 10:25 of action. The forward finished the game with a minus-2 rating and was hanging his arm at one point in the contest, a sign he could benefit from some more conditioning work. Foligno should be viewed as day-to-day for now, but don't be surprised if the Sabres shut him down temporarily in an attempt to aid his recovery. Patrick Kaleta will join the lineup in Foligno's stead Thursday.

Sabres' Foligno Draws Back In Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Blues, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno had missed the Sabres' previous four games with the shoulder injury. Coach Ted Nolan will plug him back in on the third line, where he'll be joined by Cody McCormick and Chris Stewart.

Sabres' Foligno Cleared

News: Marcus Foligno, out since Nov. 1 due to a shoulder injury, has been cleared to play, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno is expected to play in Tuesday's game in St. Louis. He's got just three points through 11 games and plays for a team that has just 20 goals this season. Plus he'll be on a bottom line to start, so he's best left on your bench for now if your league runs that deep.

Sabres' Foligno Out Saturday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) will not play Saturday against the Penguins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno revealed on Friday that his shoulder has been bothering him for the past week, which will result in him missing his fourth straight game. The forward has been able to skate the last few days, but he'll likely remain unavailable for games until he logs a full practice or two.

Sabres' Foligno Has Bum Shoulder

News: Marcus Foligno, who will miss Friday's game against Edmonton, said it's his left shoulder that's bothering him.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno is hopeful to return Saturday against Pittsburgh after suffering a left shoulder injury against them last week. He's one of Buffalo's most physical forwards and needs to stay healthy to be an effective player. The good news is that it's not the shoulder that Foligno had surgery on in the offseason. He has two goals and 36 hits in 11 games this season.

Sabres' Foligno Targeting Saturday Return

News: Marcus Foligno (general soreness) could make his return to the Buffalo lineup as soon as Saturday.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was able to skate on his own Thursday, but it doesn't sound like he's progressed enough to be a lineup option for Friday's game against the Oilers. However, if Foligno is able to increase his activity during the Sabres' morning skate Friday, coach Ted Nolan could look to swap him into the lineup for the second game of the back-to-back on Saturday. Johan Larsson has been filled in for the injured Foligno during the last two games.

Sabres' Foligno Ruled Out Wednesday

News: Coach Ted Nolan said Marcus Foligno (general soreness) would not play Wednesday against the Canadiens
Analysis: Nolan left open the possibility after Tuesday's practice that Marcus Foligno would be back in the lineup against Montreal, but the winger apparently didn't make enough progress overnight for the Sabres to feel comfortable rolling with him. He'll miss his second straight contest as Buffalo goes with the same lineup it used in Sunday's upset victory over the Red Wings.

Sabres' Foligno Could Play Wednesday

News: Marcus Foligno (general soreness) could play Wednesday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was "banged up" and missed the Sabres' last game Sunday, but that would be the extent of his absence if he is able to return to action Wednesday.

Sabres' Foligno Banged Up And Won't Play Sunday

News: Marcus Foligno is banged up and will not play Sunday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno's injury caused the Sabres to call up Johan Larsson, who will start Sunday against the Red Wings in his place. Foligno's injury is unclear, but it sounds as though it might be a combination of bumps and bruises, but doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out long-term.

Sabres To Play Foligno At Center

News: Marcus Foligno will line up at center against San Jose on Saturday, reports Paul Hamilton from WGR Sports Radio 550.
Analysis: The Sabres will try Marcus Foligno at center in an effort to spark the team after getting shut out 2-0 by the Kings on Thursday. The team has struggled on offense this year, scoring just eight goals in eight games and has been shut out three times in their past four games. Foligno is currently tied for the team lead with three points. The move to center means added responsibility for Foligno, and also means Cody Hodgson will move back to the wing.

Sabres' Foligno Scores Two In Win

News: Marcus Foligno scored two goals in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Carolina.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno played 18:03 and led all forwards with 3:02 on the penalty kill in his best game of the season so far. After scoring just seven goals last year, the budding power forward has challenged himself to be a more consistent and better overall player. He's on the right track, though it's early in the season. Foligno has 20-goal potential, but offense will be hard to come by for the Sabres, who score by committee with no standout top line.

Sabres' Foligno To Play Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: It's not certain what type of setback prevented Marcus Foligno from playing in Monday's game, but whatever ailment he is dealing with will not keep him off the ice Tuesday.

Sabres' Foligno Out With Injury Monday

News: Marcus Foligno will not be available for Monday's game against the Ducks due to an undisclosed injury, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: It's likely Marcus Foligno acquired the injury at some point during Saturday's loss to the Blackhawks, but the severity of the ailment remains unknown at this time. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Hurricanes, though it wouldn't be remotely surprising if he was held out until the weekend. Brian Flynn will replace him in the lineup Monday.

Sabres' Foligno Eager To Return To Game Action

News: Marcus Foligno, who underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason, doesn't appear to be limited in training camp, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Though Marcus Foligno suited up for 74 games last season, the shoulder injury seemed to hinder his performance throughout, as he essentially matched his scoring output from the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, despite suiting up for 27 additional games. Foligno is anxious to test out the surgically-repaired shoulder in the preseason, and it should only take a few games for him to settle back into a rhythm. The Sabres showed their faith in Foligno by giving him a two-year extension in the offseason, and with better health entering the season, he'll have a decent shot at emerging as a 30-point scorer for the Sabres.

Sabres Bring Back Foligno

News: Marcus Foligno has signed a two-year, $3.75 million deal with the Sabres, according to The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno will be a restricted free agent at the end of the contract and his cap hit will be a very manageable $1.875 million over the next two seasons. Foligno bears the burden of being the son of a former Sabre great, Mike Foligno, but has often shown glimpses of the type of game-changing power forward he can be. This is a "bridge" contract that gives Foligno time to improve and helps the Sabres retain his rights. Foligno scored seven goals in 74 games last season and missed a few of the games as a healthy scratch. He should surely improve next year.

Sabres' Foligno Looks To Improve

News: Despite posting career highs in games played, goals and points, Marcus Foligno and the Sabres expect much more from him next year, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno's seven goals and 19 points in 74 games played this season just simply isn't enough. Too often during the season the budding power forward would drift through games, going for long stretches without contributing. Head coach Ted Nolan shuffled Foligno around the lineup and cut his ice time when he felt Foligno wasn't playing up to standards. When Foligno's father, Mike, was a Sabre during the 1980's, he very much endeared himself to fans with his blue collar style. If the pucks weren't going in that night, he would find other ways to contribute, often by laying out big hits or dropping the gloves. The Sabres would like to see more of that from Marcus, who now has 135 games of NHL experience under his belt. Foligno will be a restricted free agent this summer and will likely get a "bridge" contract for a wait-and-see approach to see if he has a future with the franchise. Foligno's 206 hits led all Sabres forward, but managed just 79 shots on goal in 74 games. Perhaps making an effort to shoot the puck more will help his offensive production next year.

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.
