One of the Buffalo Sabres' key offensive weapons will return to the lineup Tuesday night.

Jeff Skinner "is a go" against the Ottawa Senators, Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger said Monday.

The 27-year-old winger has missed the last 10 games with what the club called an upper-body injury. He was hurt Dec. 27 and was expected to miss three-to-four weeks.

Skinner has collected 11 goals and 19 points in 39 games this season, but he's gone 11 games without scoring.

He signed an eight-year, $72-million extension with the Sabres in June 2019 after pouring in a career-high 40 goals and tying a career best with 63 points in 2018-19.
