A few injury updates dropped in a short period of time, so let’s address Wednesday’s considerations in one spot to save you a click or two.

For one thing, the Buffalo Sabres will be without Ryan O'Reilly against the Ottawa Senators; the Buffalo News John Vogl notes that it’s an undisclosed issue. Not long ago, the Sabres recalled Cole Schneider from the AHL while demoting Hudson Fasching.

In that same game, the Senators noted that tough forward Chris Neil won’t be able to go because of an upper-body injury. Michael Blunden takes his place in the mix.

Finally, Brandon Dubinsky is sidelined with a lower-body injury in a Columbus Blue Jackets – Anaheim Ducks game that is just under way. Injuries are stacking up for the Blue Jackets, who are reeling from Seth Jones‘ injury.

Dubinsky’s loss could be Sonny Milano’s gain, so that’s something to watch tonight.
