Earlier Thursday morning, the Buffalo Sabres completed the expected move of Jack Quinn to the practice squad, opening up a spot for Riley Sheahan on the active roster. The Sabres host the Washington Capitals later this evening for their season debut.

Quinn, 19, has impressed the Sabres so far with his play at the World Junior and short time in training camp, but still is unlikely to be ready to step directly into the limelight. He has practiced with the AHL-bound players the last few days and Sheahan is expected to be activated from his non-roster designation to play on the fourth line this evening. Still, even getting this far can only be beneficial for Quinn, the Sabres first-round pick from October.

Taylor Leier, Jack Rodewald sign in Czech Republic

  Taylor Leier, Jack Rodewald sign in Czech Republic A pair of former NHL players have decided to take their services overseas.Neither player saw NHL action last season. Leier hasn’t made an NHL appearance since the 2017-18 season when he played in 39 games for the Flyers. He scored one goal and tallied five points that year, but  hespent 2018-19 with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in the AHL and then was swapped to Buffalo at midseason for Justin Bailey. The 26-year-old never played for the Sabres, however, spending the next year-and-half with the Rochester Americans. He appeared in just 27 games for the Americans last season, posting 11 goals and 17 points.

As one of the highly-touted players out of the OHL, Quinn is currently in a state of limbo with nowhere to play. His Ottawa 67’s don’t have a clear timeline to return to action as the OHL waits out a provincial lockdown, while suiting up in the NHL would mean burning the first year of his entry-level contract and likely putting Quinn in over his head. The AHL seems a logical fit and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Quinn assigned to Rochester Americans camp when it starts Friday. The young forward can play in the minor league until the OHL gets up and running without any danger of burning his ELC.

Quinn’s World Junior partner, Dylan Cozens, doesn’t have to wait. He’ll be in the opening night lineup playing alongside Cody Eakin and Tobias Rieder on the third line.

NHL will not require blanket quarantine period for AHL recalls

  NHL will not require blanket quarantine period for AHL recalls Alongside the news of three teams opting out, four teams temporarily relocating, and realigned divisions for the coming season, more information continues to emerge following today’s AHL Board of Governors meeting. Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reports that NHL clubs and their AHL affiliates have been informed that there will be no blanket quarantine period for player recalls and reassignments this season. Instead, quarantine measures will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis considering the totality of the circumstances. This will include team protocols, travel logistics, and accordance with local COVID-19 health guidelines.

Eichel's 2nd period goal lifts Sabres over Rangers 3-2 .
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo captain Jack Eichel’s first goal of the season gave him some relief and provided a lift for the Sabres. Eichel, Dylan Cozens and Tobias Rieder scored for Buffalo, which rallied for a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night. “You have a little bit of a drought and it feels like you deserved a few goals and maybe some better fate,” Eichel said. “I think I had a few more chances in the game and you just want to try and capitalize on your opportunities. ... It’s been a year; it’s been a long year for a lot of people in terms of preparing for the season. It feels like we’re still getting our feet wet.
