Oilers eye return of Kassian as Sabres visit

The Edmonton Oilers hope to have their top line reunited when they play host to the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday.

Right winger Zack Kassian was back skating with center Connor McDavid and left winger Leon Draisaitl at practice Saturday. Kassian has missed the past three games with a back injury.

"It's only been three games, but it seems way longer than that," Kassian told the team's website. "It's not fun to be out. So I'm excited to be back, and hopefully I can give the team a boost."
