Colaiacovo agreed to a one-year deal with the Sabres on Friday.

The defenseman appeared in 33 games for the Flyers last season, notching eight points and 10 penalty minutes. The veteran has also spent time with the Blues, Red Wings and Maple Leafs during his 12-year career.

Colaiacovo (illness) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Penguins, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.

Colaiacovo missed last Saturday's game against the Sharks after coming down with the flu, but it appears that having the last few days off allowed him to get back to full health. Expect him to slot back in next to Brandon Manning on the Flyers' third defensive pairing.

Colaiacovo will miss Saturday's game against the Sharks due to an illness, Randy Miller of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Both Colaiacovo and Mark Streit were dealing with flu-like symptoms Saturday, prompting the team to rule both out for the game. Mark Alt and Oliver Lauridsen were recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley to enter the lineup in place of the ill blueliners.

Colaiacovo registered an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Stars.

Colaiacovo is not contributing heavily on offense this season. In 20 games, the defenseman has four assists and zero goals, despite setting 10 shots on goal over the past five contests. Colaiacovo had 20 or more assists in three consecutive years with the Blues between 2008-11, but that seems like a distant memory at this point. Past injuries to his leg and upper body have not helped Colaiacovo's chances to be productive.

Colaiacovo (upper body) is taking part in pregame warmups and appears set to play Tuesday against the Penguins, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Listed as doubtful to play heading into Tuesday's game, Colaiacovo looks prepared to gut it out at less than 100 percent after suffering the injury Monday against the Islanders. He was skating with Brandon Manning as part of the Flyers' third pairing during warmups.

Colaiacovo (upper body) is doubtful to play Tuesday against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers have already recalled Brandon Manning from AHL Adirondack as insurance on defense, so it all but certainly means that Colaiacovo won't take the ice Tuesday. Instead, he'll get a head start on resting up during the All-Star break. Assuming his injury isn't more than day-to-day concern, he could be a more realistic option for the Flyers' next game Jan. 27.

Colaiacovo, who is dealing with an upper-body injury, is questionable to play Tuesday against the Penguins, the Flyers' official site reports.

With Colaiacovo iffy for Tuesday and Nick Schultz ruled out for the contest, the Flyers figure to recall a blueliner from AHL Lehigh Valley.

Colaiacovo (leg), who left Monday's game against the Islanders, is doubtful for Tuesday's contest against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

With Colaiacovo likely out Tuesday, the report suggests that Brandon Manning is a candidate for a recall by the Flyers.

Colaiacovo headed to the locker room during Monday's game against the Islanders favoring his left leg, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Colaiacovo had recently returned to the Flyers' lineup, but at first glance it looks like Monday's injury could cost the blueliner some time.

Colaiacovo will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Colaiacovo had been a healthy scratch for the previous 26 games, but with Braydon Coburn (foot) set to miss the next four weeks, he'll reclaim a spot on the Flyers' third pairing. The 31-year-old has shown some puck-moving ability in the past, but his lack of power-play time and standing on the third pairing will probably limit his offensive upside.
