Sabres’ Jack Quinn practices, close to returning from injury

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Jack Quinn, who has missed the last 23 games after suffering a lower-body injury Jan. 27, returned to practice this morning and could play in Wednesday’s home contest against the Ottawa Senators.

Sabres coach Don Granato said Quinn, 22, is day to day.

“He’s very close, meaning it could be tomorrow,” Granato said after Quinn skated in a contact role during the session in KeyBank Center.

Quinn, having battled two significant injuries to his left leg, has endured a difficult season. He tore his Achilles tendon during offseason training in late June.

When he returned Dec. 19, he showed no signs of the injury or rust, scoring five goals and 12 points in 17 games before going down in San Jose.

The Sabres said following Quinn’s second injury he would be sidelined six to eight weeks.

“I always had in my head I wanted to be back this year,” said Quinn, who underwent surgery to repair his latest injury.

Quinn practiced in his usual spot at right wing alongside center Dylan Cozens and JJ Peterka.
