Alexander Nylander Returns to the Ice

Top Sabres prospect Alexander Nylander was expected to have a strong Sabres camp followed by some big minutes in an Amerks uniform before a “lower body” injury took him down on September 8th.

This was the first time we’ve spotted Nylander skating but was informed (after the below tweets) that he’s already been on the ice a few times prior to this. Today was still a first though, skating with some body contact.

The official status of when he’d return has been a continuous and mysterious week to week but after this morning it’s looking like that status could soon be day to day.

No one is going to force an early return from an injury and risk being out even longer but this is the progress we’ve all been waiting for.

He’ll be wearing #92 this season.
