BUFFALO – Sabres deefenseman Rasmus Dahlin, who suffered an upper-body injury in Friday’s 5-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, could play Tuesday, coach Don Granato said.
“There is a chance,” Granato said following this afternoon’s practice at KeyBank Center.
Dahlin, the Sabres’ top defenseman, did not practice today. Late in the session, he walked out in the tunnel and watched his teammates for several minutes.
The Swede was sucker punched by Jesperi Kotkaniemi 15:41 into Friday’s game in Carolina. Still, he finished the contest, skating 26 minutes, 58 seconds and scoring a power-play goal with one second left in the third period.
Dahlin, who’s day to day, missed Saturday’s 5-3 road loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Sabres host the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday.
