The wait is finally over for Zach Bogosian.

The Buffalo Sabres defenseman will return to the lineup and make his season debut Tuesday against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Bogosian missed the first five games of the season due to a lower-body injury that he suffered in the preseason.

The veteran defenseman didn't make his 2017-18 debut until December after suffering a lower-body injury, only appearing in 18 games after missing the final 39 contests due to a hip injury. Bogosian underwent hip surgery in the summer.

The 28-year-old is under contract for the next two seasons at a $5.14-million cap hit, per CapFriendly.

The Atlanta Thrashers selected Bogosian with the third-overall pick in the 2008 draft.
