Sabres’ Michael Frolik set to return from flu

BUFFALO – Sabres forwards Jack Eichel, Michael Frolik and Kyle Okposo will likely play in Saturday afternoon’s road game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“At the moment, everybody’s available,” Sabres coach Ralph Krueger said after the three players practiced this morning inside KeyBank Center.

Eichel and Okposo had maintenance days Thursday. The flu, meanwhile, sidelined Frolik the last two games.

“Kind of finally back to normal, I guess,” said Frolik, who skated on his own Thursday. “That really knocked me out. I don’t know what it is. I can’t remember when I missed that much time with the flu.”

Frolik said was he was bedridden for a few days.

“It’s just the fever kind of stuck around,” he said.

Update: The Sabres sent winger Scott Wilson back to the Rochester Americans this afternoon.
