News: Cody McCormick (lower body) will remain out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Red Wings.

Sabres' McCormick Placed On IR

News: Cody McCormick (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
Analysis: With several Sabres players succumbing to either injury or illness over the weekend, Cody McCormick was moved to IR in order to facilitate a roster spot for a healthy call-up. McCormick last played Dec. 11, so he's eligible to be activated from IR as soon as the Sabres determine he's ready to play. Coach Ted Nolan indicated Monday that McCormick could be activated as soon as Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, according to Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.

Sabres' McCormick Takes To Ice Saturday

News: Cody McCormick (lower body) was able to get in a brief skate before Saturday's practice, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: It looks to be just a preliminary step in the recovery process for Cody McCormick, who is being viewed as week-to-week by the Sabres. The team isn't likely to have a firmer timetable for his return until he resumes practicing with the rest of the team.

Sabres' McCormick Week-To-Week

News: Cody McCormick (lower body) is considered week-to-week, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick has already missed the last three games with the injury and doesn't seem to be particularly close to a return. The Sabres could place him on injured reserve in the next few days to open up a roster spot for a healthy body at AHL Springfield.

Sabres' McCormick To Miss Third Straight

News: Cody McCormick (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Jets.

Sabres' McCormick Not Expected To Play Saturday

News: Cody McCormick (lower body) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan suggested the injury Cody McCormick sustained Thursday against the Flames wasn't overly serious, but it appears significant enough to keep the forward out of the lineup for at least Saturday's match. Cody Hodgson would likely enter the lineup in place of McCormick.

Sabres' McCormick Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Cody McCormick suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's game against the Flames and will not return.

Sabres Move McCormick (Concussion) To IR

News: Cody McCormick (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Cody McCormick reported improvement with his condition Monday, but he's not quite ready to return to action Tuesday against the Lightning, which will be the fourth straight game he's missed. Moving McCormick to IR will allow the Sabres to restock on some depth at forward by adding Tim Schaller from the minors.

Sabres' McCormick Remains Sidelined

News: Cody McCormick (concussion) will not play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Analysis: Cody McCormick said he is "feeling pretty good," but he is still going through the concussion protocol, so he will not play Tuesday. McCormick took part in Tuesday's morning skate and also skated Monday, however, so his return should not be far off.

Sabres' McCormick Practices

News: Cody McCormick (concussion) practiced with the team Monday, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick took a skate to the face, but returned to the ice a couple days later, and practiced Monday without restriction. There's no word yet on whether or not he'll suit up for Tuesday's game against the Lightning at this point.

Sabres' McCormick (Concussion) Skates Wednesday

News: Cody McCormick (concussion) took part in Wednesday's optional skate, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick remains under the concussion protocol after taking a skate to the face in Saturday's game versus the Capitals, but his participation at practice would seem to be a good sign. Though he'll sit out Wednesday's game against the Jets, McCormick could be ready to go for Friday's tilt with the Canadiens.

Sabres' McCormick Could Have Concussion

News: Cody McCormick (head) is undergoing concussion protocol, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick took a skate to the face in Saturday's game, and headed straight to the locker room. Given his history with concussion problems, it's certainly a bad sign that he could be dealing with yet another one.

Sabres' McCormick Takes Skate To Face

News: Cody McCormick left Saturday's game against Washington after taking a skate to the face and will not return.
Analysis: It was a scary incident, as Cody McCormick took a skate to the face that seemed perilously close to dealing some serious damage. It was a hard blow nonetheless, and raises the issue of a potential concussion given McCormick's history with head injuries. He's day-to-day until we know more.

Sabres' McCormick Will Play Saturday

News: Cody McCormick (undisclosed) will be in the lineup Saturday against the Blackhawks, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick was considered questionable heading into the day after missing Friday's practice, but the maintenance day was all he needed to regain health. He's expected to center the Sabres' checking line.

Sabres' McCormick Questionable For Saturday

News: Cody McCormick didn't practice Friday morning and his status for Saturday is questionable, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Head coach Ted Nolan called it a "maintenance day" with Brian Flynn subbing in on the fourth line with Torrey Mitchell and Nicolas Deslauriers. The Sabres are coming off a 3-1 loss to Columbus in their season opener and allowed 40 shots. They'll face Chicago on Saturday. Consider Cody McCormick a game-time decision for now.

Sabres To McCormick: Less Fighting

News: Head coach Ted Nolan wants Cody McCormick to drop the gloves a little less often, reports WGR550 SportsRadio.
Analysis: Cody McCormick dropped the gloves 11 times last year, three in the preseason and eight during the regular season. He's a gritty player who thrives on physical play, but Nolan believes he can contribute more on the ice rather than sitting for five minutes in the box. McCormick was traded to the Wild but returned to Buffalo in the offseason with a three-year, $4.5 million deal. Fantasy-wise, McCormick's expected dip in fighting majors lessens his value with fewer penalty minutes to gain. His career high of eight goals came four years ago so he isn't really on the fantasy radar.

Sabres Sign McCormick

News: The Sabres signed Cody McCormick to a three-year, $4.5 million contract Tuesday, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Like Matt Moulson, Cody McCormick returns to Buffalo after both players were shipped off to Minnesota during the Sabres' fire sale. McCormick provides grit, leadership and depth to both the center and wing positions. Fantasy-wise, McCormick isn't worth considering in most formats, but he does fight often enough to collect some penalty minutes. McCormick was beset by injuries last year and played just 43 games in the regular season, scoring two goals and notching 52 penalty minutes.

McCormick Powers Wild Past Pens

News: Cody McCormick compiled his first points as a member of the Wild on Saturday, notching a goal and an assist in the win over the Penguins.
Analysis: After serving as a healthy scratch for the previous three games, Cody McCormick finally got a chance to play Saturday and made the most of it. The performance figures to earn him at least another appearance in the lineup Monday against the Jets.

Wild's McCormick Stuck On Bench

News: Cody McCormick hasn't played the last two games as a healthy scratch, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He suffered a cut near his eye after a hard hit in Saturday's game, but it sounds like he's stuck on the bench rather than injured.

Wild's McCormick Questionable Monday

Wild's McCormick To Be Healthy Scratch Monday

News: Cody McCormick will be a healthy scratch Monday against Boston, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine will play as a result after sitting out five games. While Cody McCormick doesn't have a point in five games since he was traded to the Wild, this is more likely giving him a day of rest rather than a demotion.

Sabres Ship McCormick To Minnesota

News: Cody McCormick was traded to the Wild along with Matt Moulson in exchange for Torrey Mitchell and two future second-round draft picks, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick is in the final year of his contract and will likely function as fourth-line depth for the Wild, effectively replacing the unhappy Mitchell. McCormick had five points and a minus-8 rating over 29 games with Buffalo.

Sabres' McCormick Ready to Return

News: Cody McCormick (finger) will play Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick has not played since mid-December due to a broken finger, but it appears his recovery path is nearing its end. McCormick has tallied five points and 43 PIM in 25 games this season.
