Grigorenko still with Sabres

BUFFALO – No surprise here, but 18-year-old Mikhail Grigorenko’s still practicing with the Sabres this morning inside the First Niagara Center.

They must have their opening-day roster set by 5 p.m. Stay tuned.

Grigorenko’s skating with Ville Leino and Steve Ott, a sign he could be in the lineup Sunday afternoon against Philadelphia.

The center can play five games before the first year of his entry-level contract kicks in.
