Pittsburgh Penguins forward Alex Galchenyuk is in the lineup for Thursday's contest against the Buffalo Sabres. He will skate on Pittsburgh's second line with Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Tanev.

Galchenyuk was initially listed as a game-time decision due to a lower-body injury that limited him to just one preseason contest.

Pittsburgh acquired Galchenyuk from the Arizona Coyotes on June 29 as part of the Phil Kessel trade. The 25-year-old tallied 19 goals and 41 points in 72 games for the Coyotes in 2018-19.
