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.

Sabres' Gorges (Knee) Expected To Miss Weeks

News: Josh Gorges is dealing with a knee injury and it will cost him multiple weeks, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges has produced just one point through 17 games this season, also posting a minus-8 rating. Part of that is a product of the team he plays for in Buffalo, but regardless, he doesn't serve much fantasy value in most leagues.

Sabres' Gorges Likely Out Again

News: Coach Ted Nolan said he had no update on Josh Gorges' (lower body) condition after Friday's practice, suggesting the blueliner will miss his second straight game, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was set to undergo further evaluation Friday, so the team could have an update on the exact nature of his injury and a potential return timetable after Saturday's contest. The early indications after Gorges left Tuesday's game were that the injury was more than a day-to-day concern, but the extent of the damage should become more apparent soon.

Sabres' Gorges Ruled Out Thursday

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) will not play Thursday against the Wild, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges didn't practice Wednesday and looks like he could be in line for a long-term absence, after coach Ted Nolan didn't seem to express much optimism about the blueliner's condition when a lower-body injury forced him out of action Tuesday night. The Sabres should have a better estimate for a return timetable on Gorges once he's evaluated after the team returns to Buffalo on Friday.

Gorges Injury Not Good, Says Sabres

News: Josh Gorges left Tuesday night's game with an apparent lower body injury and is expected to miss some time.
Analysis: Head coach Ted Nolan says the injury is "not good," but who knows what that means. Regardless, the Sabres' most reliable defenseman is expected to miss at least Thursday's game. No word on the specifics of the injury but for a team struggling to keep pucks out of the net, this could be a huge blow. On the flip side, this may lead to more appearances from Nikita Zadorov or a call-up from the minor leagues even though Jake McCabe and Mark Pysyk have struggled.

Sabres' Gorges Exits With Apparent Injury

News: Josh Gorges left the Sabres' Tuesday night game against the Blues in the second period and did not return for the third period after suffering an apparent lower body injury, Mike Harrington of Buffalonews.com reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was hit behind the Buffalo net late in the second period, and did not return to the Sabres' bench for the third period. The team should update Gorges' status in the coming days.

Sabres' Gorges Gets First Point

News: Josh Gorges assisted on the Sabres' lone goal and finished with a minus-3 rating in their blowout loss to the Penguins on Saturday.
Analysis: It took a whopping 16 games for Josh Gorges to record his first point of the season. During his tenure with the Canadiens, Gorges never provided much offensive utility, so it's perhaps no surprise that his point totals have fallen off a cliff completely on a Sabres squad that is woefully short on offensive talent. Given his limited scoring ability and the regular hits he'll take to his plus/minus rating, Gorges is more of a liability than an asset in the fantasy realm.

Gorges Traded To Sabres

News: The Canadiens have traded Josh Gorges to the Sabres for a 2016 second-round pick, CBC.ca reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges refused a trade to Toronto and expanded his trade list to 15 teams before joining the Sabres. Although Gorges isn't much of a fantasy factor -- he totaled just 14 points in 66 games for Montreal last season -- his leadership and defensive prowess will be invaluable in Buffalo. By acquiring Gorges, the Sabres have reached the cap floor of $51 million and added two of the Canadiens' captains.

Gorges "In Shock" The Habs Are Shopping Him

News: Josh Gorges is "in shock" that the Canadiens are trying to trade him, reports TSN.ca. "I want people to know that I never wanted to leave Montreal. I have never asked for a trade - this is (general manager) Marc Bergevin's call. I am in shock."
Analysis: Josh Gorges, who went to Montreal from San Jose in a 2007 deal, has four years remaining on a six-year deal worth $3.9 million per season. "This is really hard to accept," continued Gorges, who has worn the A for the Habs. "I have always given my heart to this team." He did confirm that he has expanded his list of possible trade destinations to include a couple of Canadian teams. The Leafs have expressed interest, but it's not known if Toronto is on this list.

Habs Looking To Move Gorges?

News: The Canadiens are looking to trade Josh Gorges, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. He has provided the team with a list of 15 cities he's willing to be dealt.
Analysis: Interestingly, none of the Canadian teams are on that list. He has a cap hit of $3.9 million through 2017-18 and is a shot-blocking machine. He could help a lot of teams, but is unlikely to improve his fantasy value in other cities.

Canadiens' Gorges Collects Assist In Return

News: Josh Gorges (hand) registered an assist and a minus-1 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Most importantly, the veteran defenseman registered nearly 22 minutes of ice time in his first game in over a month. While Josh Gorges isn't exactly winning any leagues for fantasy owners or setting any new career-highs, he will certainly be an important part of Montreal's playoff run.

Analysis: Josh Gorges has been out of the lineup since Mar. 6 with a broken bone in his finger. With three games left in the regular season, Gorges can use this time to prepare for the postseason.
