Sabres' Gorges Reveals Knee Injury

News: Josh Gorges revealed that he had microfracture surgery in his knee, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was placed on the injured reserve in late February for a lower-body injury, and with the season over, he revealed that he went under the knife to stimulate cartilage growth in his knee. The timeline for his return is six months, which means Gorges should return by August and be ready for training camp next season.

Sabres Shuffle Gorges To IR

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
Analysis: Josh Gorges is set to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing season-ending surgery Monday. Jake McCabe was recalled ahead of Sunday's game against the Predators to assume Gorges' spot on the 23-man roster.

Sabres' Gorges (Lower Body) Out For Season

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season.
Analysis: Josh Gorges suffered the injury early in February, the exact nature of the ailment hasn't been disclosed beyond the lower-body. He will miss the remainder of the season, and will begin the road to recovery in preparation for the 2015-16 campaign. Gorges had a tough first season in Buffalo after being traded from Montreal. He's expected to be one of the team's veteran leaders down the road. He finishes the 2014-15 season with six assists in 46 games played and a minus-28 rating.

Sabres' Gorges (Lower Body) Likely Done For Season

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) will likely miss the remainder of the season, John Vogl of Buffalo News reports. "It's leaning that way, but we'll see in the next little bit here," said coach Ted Nolan.
Analysis: Josh Gorges will miss both games of the two-game road trip, and it appears his absence could extend much longer than that. Coach Ted Nolan seemed to indicate that more information on his situation should come up in the near future, and his status will be updated when that happens.

Gorges Absent From Sabres' Road Trip

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) did not travel with the team on their two-game road trip and will not play Tuesday against New Jersey.
Analysis: Josh Gorges is batting a lower-body injury that is being re-evaluated. There is no word on how long Gorges will be out, but he will miss games on Tuesday and Thursday. The veteran defenseman has struggled this season on a poor team and scored just six assists in 46 games. Look for Zach Bogosian and Andre Benoit to form the top pairing again.

Sabres' Gorges Will Not Play Sunday

News: Josh Gorges could be out "for a while," reports the Olean Times Hearld.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was kept off the ice for the last few practices, and the veteran defenseman could be out long-term, though the Sabres can't be sure until Gorges gets a second opinion. For now, Gorges will be sidelined for the foreseeable future. Look for newly-acquired Zach Bogosian to get plenty of minutes Sunday.

Sabres' Gorges (Undisclosed) Practices Sunday

News: Josh Gorges (undisclosed) was not on the ice for practice Sunday.
Analysis: Josh Gorges didn't practice Saturday either, likely indicating he will miss Sunday's game against the Flyers. Johan Larsson was recalled Sunday, which also could be hinting towards his absence. However, an official decision on his status hasn't been made yet, but it should come at some point prior to the opening face-off.

Sabres' Gorges Misses Practice

News: Josh Gorges missed Saturday's morning skate for maintenance purposes, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges hasn't been on the ice since Wednesday, so it's more than likely he's nursing some sort of nagging injury. He looks questionable at best to suit up Sunday against the Flyers, as his absence from the ice the last few days might prompt coach Ted Nolan to go with a healthier option. The stay-at-home defenseman has been playing some tough minutes during a very frustrating season, which has saddled him with a minus-28 rating over 46 games. If Gorges is indeed out Sunday, the Sabres' defense could have extreme difficulty shutting down Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek.

Sabres' Gorges Banged Up

News: Josh Gorges missed Thursday's practice and isn't a sure bet to play Sunday against the Flyers, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Though coach Ted Nolan termed Josh Gorges' absence as a "maintenance day," his unwillingness to commit to the blueliner's availability for the team's next game suggests a legitimate injury might be in play. The Sabres will see if Gorges is able to get back on the ice for practice either of the next two days before revisiting his status.

Gorges Deployed On Sabres' Power Play

News: Josh Gorges will join the second power-play unit Tuesday against Montreal, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was not happy about being traded out of Montreal, and this will be his first appearance against his former team. Putting him on the power play gives him a chance to do some damage, but Gorges is known for his defense and has scored just three power-play goals in 601 career NHL games. The Sabres are in the midst of a 14-game losing streak -- three losses away from tying the NHL record -- and Gorges has a league-worst minus-27 rating. Gorges is currently averaging 1:01 on the power play per game, sixth on the team. Even with the new opportunities, don't expect him to be a big contributor anytime soon.

Josh Gorges, D, BUF Struggles Continue For Sabres' Gorges

Struggles Continue For Sabres' Gorges

News: Josh Gorges spent an extra half hour discussing the team's play with head coach Ted Nolan after practice.
Analysis: The Sabres' infirmary is quite crowded, but it wasn't excuses Josh Gorges and Nolan shared with each other while the team is mired in a seven-game losing streak. As one of the team's veterans, Gorges was supposed to be a stabilizing presence for the team, but the team is once again headed to the lottery. Gorges has a minus-11 rating in his past seven games. He rarely puts up any points but even in leagues that count blocked shots his plus-minus rating is an eye sore.

Rare Two-Point Night For Sabres' Gorges

News: Josh Gorges was credited with two assists in Saturday's come-from-behind shootout victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: Both of the helpers were of the secondary variety, with one coming on the penalty kill. Perhaps the most trusted defender on the Buffalo roster, Josh Gorges has seen over 26 minutes of ice time in two straight contests and should continue to hold down a spot on the team's top pairing. However, both this season and historically, he's never been much of a contributor on the offense end, limiting his utility in the fantasy realm.

Sabres' Gorges Draws Back In

News: Josh Gorges (undisclosed) will play Saturday against the Avalanche, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: As expected, Josh Gorges made it through the Sabres' morning skate without any setbacks and will be plugged in on the blue line after a two-game absence. Tyson Strachan (lower body) will exit the lineup to clear the way for Gorges' return.

Sabres' Gorges Likely To Play Saturday

News: Josh Gorges (undisclosed) expects to return to the lineup Saturday against the Avalanche, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges missed the last two games due to the injury, but a three-day break in the Sabres' schedule looks like it will provide the defenseman with enough time to return to full health. His impending return, and possibly Tyson Strachan's, would likely bump Andrej Meszaros out of the Buffalo lineup

Sabres' Gorges Will Not Play Tuesday

News: Josh Gorges (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Jets.
Analysis: Josh Gorges wasn't able to take part in the pregame warmup for the Sabres, forcing him to head to the press box for the second straight game. Nikita Zadorov will step in to take Gorges' spot on the top defensive pairing with Tyler Myers.

Sabres' Gorges: Game-Time Decision

News: Josh Gorges (finger) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's tilt with the Jets.
Analysis: Though Josh Gorges was forced to sit out Monday's game after injuring his finger over the weekend, he's still traveling with the Sabres and doesn't appear to be in danger of a long absence. Coach Ted Nolan suggested that Gorges would take part in pregame warmups before the team renders a decision on his availability for Tuesday's game.

Sabres' Gorges Suffers Undisclosed Injury

News: Josh Gorges suffered an undisclosed injury after blocking a shot in Saturday's game against the Panthers, the Olean Times Herald's Bill Hoppe reports. He will not play Monday against Ottawa.
Analysis: Josh Gorges will undergo further examination to determine the severity of the injury, the nature of which is still not known. For now, he is considered day-to-day.

Sabres' Gorges Will Play Tuesday

News: Josh Gorges will play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Analysis: The blueliner will resume his position on the team's third pairing, and should only be a fantasy option in the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Gorges Skates

News: Josh Gorges (knee) practiced with the team Monday, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: The blueliner recorded an assist in 17 games before getting hurt, and will need to be activated off of IR before returning.

Sabres' Gorges Remains Sidelined

News: Josh Gorges (knee) will not play Saturday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Josh Gorges is nearly ready to resume playing, but he remains on injured reserve for now, and will miss his sixth consecutive game Saturday.

Sabres Rule Gorges Out For Both Weekend Games

News: Josh Gorges (knee) will not play Friday against the Canadiens and isn't likely to suit up in Saturday's rematch either, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was on the ice as an extra for Friday's morning skate, and while he feels like he's ready to go, the Sabres' doctors aren't signing off on his return just yet. Unless the doctors change their tune Saturday morning, it's looking likely that Gorges won't be activated until prior to next Tuesday's game against the Lightning.

Sabres' Gorges Logs Full Practice

News: Josh Gorges (knee) could be available for either of the Sabres' two games over the weekend.
Analysis: Josh Gorges participated fully in Thursday's practice and indicated afterward that his knee feels better with each passing day. However, the Sabres want to ensure they don't throw in back in the lineup at less than 100 percent, so Gorges will be evaluated after Friday's morning skate before the team determines whether or not he'll play later that evening against his former team, the Canadiens.

Sabres' Gorges Practices With Team Tuesday

News: Josh Gorges (knee) participated with the team at Tuesday's practice.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was limited to working out on his own on the ice during Monday's session, but his involvement in multiple drills with his teammates indicates a return might not be far off. The blueliner is aiming to return over the weekend for one or both of the Sabres' back-to-back matchups with the Habs, his former team.

Sabres' Gorges On Ice Monday

News: Josh Gorges was on the ice during practice Monday, Bille Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: The report doesn't necessarily indicate that he was practicing with the Sabres, but it does say that he was on the ice during the team's practice. He was placed on injured reserve Nov. 18 and was expected to miss multiple weeks because of the knee injury. However, his presence at practice already suggests that he could be on an accelerated schedule, so keep an eye out for further news.

Sabres Place Gorges On IR

News: Josh Gorges (knee) was moved to injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was ruled out for multiple weeks after suffering a knee injury last Tuesday, so moving him to IR will allow the Sabres to open up a roster spot for another player. The blueliner had one point and a minus-8 rating over 17 games.
