Sabres' Cody Eakin: Helps spark offense in victory

Eakin picked up a goal and an assist with three shots in Friday's 4-1 win over Montreal. Eakin produced both of his points during the second period, giving the Sabres a 2-1 lead with his goal midway through the frame before setting up Kyle Okposo's short-handed tally six minutes later. The effort snapped a seven-game pointless streak for the 30-year-old Eakin, who has two goals and three points in 14 contests on the year.

Eakin missed the last five games and hasn't suited up since Oct. 19 while dealing with an upper-body injury. He's been at practice the last two days and should be back in the lineup Tuesday.

Sabres' Cody Eakin: Ditches non-contact sweater

Eakin (upper body) practiced Monday in a regular jersey and could be an option against San Jose on Tuesday, per John Vogl of The Athletic. Eakin has been on the shelf for the club's last five games due to his upper-body issue but appears to be trending in the right direction. Before getting hurt, the Winnipeg native generated one goal and one assist in three games this year. If Eakin does get onto the ice Tuesday, it will likely be in a bottom-six role, though he could push Tage Thompson for a spot on the second line.

Sabres notebook: Cody Eakin back at practice, closing in on return

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Center Cody Eakin took the Honda Center ice in a gold noncontact jersey Thursday morning but that didn't stop him from jumping into some drills. He missed his fourth straight game as the Sabres opened their four-game Western road trip against the Anaheim Ducks but his presence on the trip, and his work on ice, seem to indicate he will be back in the lineup very soon.

Sabres' Cody Eakin: Targeting Thursday return

Eakin (upper body) is hoping to be available for Thursday's matchup with Anaheim, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. While Eakin won't be an option versus the Lightning on Monday, the fact that he has a target return date is certainly a step in the right direction. Prior to suffering his upper-body injury, the 30-year-old center tallied one goal on seven shots, one assist and three blocks in three contests. Look for Eakin to slot into a bottom-six role once given the all-clear.

Sabres' Cody Eakin: Collects power-play tally

Eakin scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Coyotes. The 30-year-old center only saw 12 seconds of ice time with the man advantage, hopping over the boards at the tail end of a power play split in half by the first intermission, but Eakin made them count as he scored his first PP goal since 2018-19 with Vegas, and only the 12th of his career. He only has one 20-goal campaign on his resume and is expected to fill a bottom-six role in Buffalo, but the Sabres are thin enough down the middle -- especially with Casey Mittelstadt (upper body) now joining Jack Eichel (neck) on the sidelines -- that Eakin could continue to sneak in opportunities in more fantasy-friendly situations.

Sabres' Cody Eakin: On ice for practice

Eakin (undisclosed) is on the ice for the first practice of Buffalo's training camp Thursday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports. Eakin missed the final game of the 2020-21 season with an undisclosed issue, but it was never believed to be something that would carry over to the 2021-22 campaign. The 30-year-old pivot picked up seven points in 46 games last season.

2021-22 Buffalo Sabres: 4C – Cody Eakin

Sabres fans are not going to want to hear this. When building the Sabres roster originally, it was easy to envision Vinnie Hinostroza centering Zemgus Girgensons and Kyle Okposo, and while it’s true that Hinostroza can play right wing or center, there was no one on that imaginary line who could take faceoffs all that well. In fact, out of Okposo, Hinostroza and Girgensons, it is Okposo who actually has the best career faceoff percentage of the trio at 48%. There’s another factor at play here, too: The Sabres have to get to the cap floor and it’s possible that they’ll need Eakin’s $2.25m to get there.
