Kyle Okposo talks in-depth with 'Spittin' Chiclets' podcast

Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) – Buffalo Sabres winger Kyle Okposo spent some time with the "Spittin’ Chiclets" gang doing their podcast. The group covered a lot of ground during the episode, but, of course, the conversation got more interesting when the conversation switched to July 1, 2016 when Okposo became the most sought after free agent in the NHL. That day saw the Sabres sign the winger to a seven-year, $42 million deal.

2022 Player Report Card: Kyle Okposo

This report card was one I was itching to do for a few reasons. First off, “Dad” as affectionately referred to by many Sabres players, had one of the better seasons of his career as a Sabre. He also established himself as the clear-cut leader of this group and someone the locker room looks up to. But another reason is that Okposo is 34 years old, and players’ primes don’t last forever.

Buffalo Sabres 2021-2022 Player Season Report Card: Kyle Okposo

The Buffalo Sabres started off this season by stripping the captaincy from former superstar Jack Eichel. By doing so, they were in the market for new leadership, and turned to their most veteran presences in Kyle Okposo and Zemgus Girgensons. The two split up the alternate captain letters, as there was no official captain named for the year. Though not explicitly stated, both General manager (GM) Kevyn Adams and coach Don Granato seemed to be on the same page of letting the leaders present themselves as the year went on.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Close to fully recovered

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Might play Friday

Okposo (leg) could be available to play versus Chicago on Friday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. While Okposo won't be available for Thursday's matchup with Boston, it seems the veteran will try to give it a go for the second game of the back-to-back Friday. It does seem somewhat pointless to press Okposo into service in a game that has little meaning outside of pride. If the St. Paul native can snag one more point this year, he'll register his highest season total since 2015-16 when he was with the Islanders. He currently has 45 points in 74 games.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Suffers leg injury

Okposo sustained a leg injury at Monday's practice session and is being evaluated, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Okposo has found his offensive game of late, as he has recorded three goals, one assist and 13 shots over his last six outings. If the winger misses any time, we will likely see Cody Eakin draw into the lineup, though the Sabres could also call up a player from the minors. At this point, even a relatively minor injury could see Okposo miss the final two games of the season, especially with the team out of playoff contention.
