TORONTO -- Marcus Foligno told Minnesota beat writers last month he's quickly learned the difference between the Sabres and the Wild, and reiterated it last week during a visit in Air Canada Centre. "We have to be emotionally involved. There's nothing but winning here," Foligno told The Buffalo News. "Anything less than that is failure. That's not to discredit anything …

Until now, Sam Reinhart has been a prolific player. He had 319 points in 250 junior games. He scored 23 goals as a rookie for the Sabres. He reached 30 assists last year in his second season.

LAS VEGAS — The two former Buffalo Sabres who are members of the Vegas Golden Knights say their experience with the NHL's newest expansion team has been a whirlwind from the day they were drafted in June.

SUMMERLIN, Nevada — It took a review by the National Hockey League but Sabres forward Sam Reinhart officially has his first goal of the season. The NHL has changed the scoring on the game-winning goal from Sunday's 3-1 victory in Anaheim, crediting the goal to Reinhart on an assist from Benoit Pouliot with 31.3 seconds left in the second period.

It wasn't supposed to be like this. Everyone in the Sabres' organization was thrilled for a fresh start. Yet after three games, the SOS has been issued. Same Old Sabres. The distress flag came out of storage following the 6-3 loss to the Islanders on Saturday. It was waving by the second intermission of Monday's 6-2 loss to New Jersey. Surprisingly, things are cal…

Sam Reinhart lives with Jack Eichel in a waterfront townhouse and is certainly happy his roommate has a new contract extension that kicks in next season. It was a lock that Eichel was going to get a new deal at some point. It's not so assured that Reinhart will be getting any big money. His entry-level deal expires after the season and General Manager Jason Botterill sa…

It's not quite a version of "Where's Waldo" when looking for Sam Reinhart in the Buffalo Sabres lineup. The forward played right wing and center for his first two professional hockey seasons. And the 21-year-old always maintains he's happy to play wherever, happy to have the opportunity to show what he's capable of while contributing to the team. But there's somethin…

Ryan O'Reilly knows the Sabres' captaincy is available. While he says it would be an honor to wear the "C," he's not going to campaign for it. As usual, his words suggest he's a top candidate. The Sabres struggled with communication last season, and O'Reilly is determined to change that. "Leadership is a big part, hold everyone accountable, myself being accountabl…

Sam Reinhart is no stranger to shifting from right wing to center. When the Sabres opened training camp Friday, he was in the middle. He's excited about it. He is also aware he could be a right winger before camp is over. "I've spent my whole career back and forth. I've been ready for it," Reinhart said in HarborCenter. "Like I've said in the past, I'm ready for ever…

The Sabres used the No. 2 overall draft pick on center Sam Reinhart in 2014. For much of the last two seasons, Reinhart was a right winger, not a center. Just a few minutes into Phil Housley's chat to open training camp, it was wondered where Reinhart will play. "Do I really have to reveal that right out of the gate?" Housley said with a laugh. Thankfully, the coa…

The Buffalo Sabres don't plan on easing Cal O'Reilly into their lineup Friday night. Fresh off being called up from Rochester, O'Reilly was on a line with rookie center Jack Eichel and winger Jamie McGinn during the morning skate prior to the Sabres hosting the Detroit Red Wings at First Niagara Center (7 p.m., MSG, WGR 550 AM). "He's really a versatile player," Sabres c…

Matt Moulson is entering Ville Leino territory. That's a harsh, cold reality for the underperforming Buffalo Sabres forward. Moulson has not scored a goal since Nov. 1. That's 36 games ago. Only once has he been on the ice for more than 10 minutes in the Sabres' last seven contests. "I don't like where his game's been at," Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said following Friday's…
