The 23-year-old Cozens has been productive for the better part of a month now, tallying four goals and 11 points in his last 10 contests. Following a prolonged slump earlier this year, Cozens is now up to 33 points (11 goals, 22 assists) through 52 games.

  • Sabres' Dylan Cozens: Four-game, seven-point streak

    Cozens scored a goal and added two assists in a 5-2 win over San Jose on Saturday.

    He got the primary helper on the Sabres' first goal after attempting a wraparound that John-Jason Peterka punched in on a rebound. Cozens' pass to Peterka in the third period resulted in a one-timer that San Jose netminder Kaapo Kahkonen couldn't snag. Finally, the 22-year-old forward scored an empty-netter to seal Buffalo's win. Cozens heads into the break riding a four-game point streak (three goals, four assists).

  • Sabres' Dylan Cozens: Unavailable Saturday

    Cozens (upper body) is expected to miss Saturday's game against Toronto, according to Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550.

    Cozens has three goals and seven points in 11 contests this year after setting career highs in 2022-23 with 31 markers and 68 points. He's regarded as day-to-day, according to Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News, so Cozens might still be an option Tuesday against Carolina. His absence could push Victor Olofsson, who was a healthy scratch in Buffalo's previous three games, into the lineup Saturday.

  • Sabres' Dylan Cozens: Good to go

    Cozens (undisclosed) will play Friday versus the Penguins, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Cozens was sore after practice Wednesday and didn't play versus Columbus. The 22-year-old is now back in action and ready to center the second line in the Sabres' last preseason contest. He'll likely be in that role and on the first power-play unit when the puck drops versus the Rangers on Thursday.
