Okposo (face) won't return to Thursday's game after taking a puck to the face, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Okposo was struck on a clearing attempt by Matt Irwin.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Distributor on two goals

Okposo contributed two assists Wednesday in a 6-1 win over the Flyers. The Sabres snapping an 18-game losing skid masked the fact that Okposo has recorded at least one point in five straight games, with the hot streak sandwiched around an upper-body injury that had cost him three contests. It's generally difficult to trust Buffalo's skaters in fantasy these days, but Okposo has low-end value amid his surge.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Likely out for road trip

Okposo (upper body) isn't expected to be available for the final three games of the Sabres' current four-game road trip, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. Okposo already missed Monday's game versus the Rangers, and it appears as though the veteran forward will miss at least three more contests. Either way, Okposo's only notched five points in 24 games this year, so his absence won't impact many fantasy lineups.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Nets first goal of season

With one goal and four assists through 24 contests this season, Okposo's fantasy value is at one of the lowest levels of his career.

In 10 contests he has no points, a minus-4 rating, and nine shots on goal.
