Franson (foot) will return to the Sabres' lineup on Saturday afternoon.
Franson has missed the last four games with a bone bruise on his foot, but will return to the lineup vs. the Blues this afternoon. Franson has three goals and 13 assists (16 points) in 51 games and will skate with Josh Gorges.
Franson was expected to miss 2-3 weeks, but has only missed four games over the last week and is expected to play either Saturday vs. the Blues or Sunday vs. the Blackhawks. The Sabres play tomorrow afternoon, so expect an update around 11a.m. ET.
Franson (mid-body) will return to the Sabres’ lineup on Thursday.
Franson has missed the last three games with a mid-body injury, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Bruins. Franson will replace Dmitry Kulikov in the lineup, who comes out with a back injury. Franson has one goal and seven assists (eight points) in 31 games this season.
Franson missed Monday’s practice with a maintenance day. He is battling an undisclosed injury and is questionable for Wednesday’s game vs. the Maple Leafs. If Franson is unable to play, expect Carlo Colaiacovo to be inserted into the lineup.
The Sabres have signed Cody Franson to a two-year deal worth $6.65M (3.325 AAV).
In 2014-15, Franson split time between the Maple Leafs and Predators—he amassed a total of seven goals and 29 assists (36 points) in 78 games between the two squads. His addition makes an already improved Sabres team that much better. Expect him to play a key role on Buffalo’s power play.
Franson (upper-body) is expected to return to the lineup for Game 2.
Franson missed the season finale and Game 1 of the series, but he will be back in tonight for Game 2. He is expected to be paired with Seth Jones. He has one goal and three assists (4 points) in 23 games with Nashville.
Franson is reportedly dealing with an upper-body injury and will likely be held out of the season finale on Saturday. Franson has just four points (1G / 3A) in 23 games since being acquired by the Predators. Franson has seen his ice-time drop from 21:23 (with TOR) to 15:25.
Franson is "unlikely" to make his Predators re-debut on Tuesday.
Franson is unlikely to play because of VISA/immigration issues. With Franson not available, the Predators hope to have Anton Volchenkov back in the lineup. If he doesn’t make his season debut with the Predators tonight, look for him to play on Thursday on Long Island.
The Predators have acquired Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli from the Maple Leafs for Olli Jokinen, Brendan Leipsic and a 2015 first round pick.
Franson, 27, who was originally drafted by the Predators in 2005, spent the first four years of his career in Nashville. 2014-15 was his fourth year in Toronto, he has registered 32 points (6G / 26A) in 55 games at the point of today’s trade. Franson heading to Nashville makes the Preds even more of a legitimate Stanley Cup favourite.
