Andre Benoit D BUF 20 Days

Benoit will return to the Sabres lineup Friday against Edmonton, reports WGR 550 SportsRadio.

Benoit has gone pointless in 12 games this year and posted an ugly minus-9 rating, but brings some offense to the table. He'll replace Tyson Strachan as the Sabres try to take advantage of a relatively weak defensive team in Edmonton. Benoit is averaging 21:33 and is averaging almost two blocked shots per game. On a night without many games, Benoit could be an intriguing option for a plug-and-play defenseman for tonight only.

Benoit will be scratched for the second straight game Wednesday when the Sabres take on the Canadiens, The Buffalo News reports.

Assuming the Sabres keep Nikita Zadorov around, they have eight healthy defensemen right now and anyone but Tyler Myers and Josh Gorges seems to be a candidate for press box any given night. With zero points in 12 games and a minus-9 rating, Benoit should be nowhere near anyone's lineup in his first season as a Sabre.
