The last time we saw Jack Quinn, he was being helped off the ice after suffering an awful-looking leg injury in San Jose. After fighting his way back from an offseason injury, Quinn would be sidelined long-term. However, there was a welcoming sight at the Sabres morning skate today.

Head coach Don Granato went on to WGR 550 this morning and said that Jack was going to be a FULL participant today in practice. A couple of hours later, Quinn was on the ice as he was reunited with Dylan Cozens and JJ Peterka.

From the media members who were at the morning skate, Quinn looked like he did not miss any time. After the practice, Granato said Jack was considered day-to-day. When it comes to tomorrow night's game against the Ottawa Senators, Granato added Quinn has a chance to play.

First of all, this is great news for Buffalo. Seeing him being helped off the ice in a lot of pain against the Sharks was a tough sight. He worked his butt off to get back into the lineup after his offseason injury. It was brutal to have him out of the lineup for the last two months.

In the 17 games he played before going down, Jack scored five goals and registered seven assists. I'm also excited to see him back with Cozens and Peterka as those three players have awesome chemistry. Say what you want to say about the season the Sabres are having but regardless, it's great to see Jack in good spirits and back on the ice.

As for his status, I think he will be back in the lineup tomorrow night against Ottawa. Based on the reporters who were at the practice today, all signs point to him playing tomorrow IN MY OPINION. While I think he will, he is day-to-day as mentioned earlier, so nothing is confirmed.

Even if he doesn't play tomorrow, it's great to see Quinn on the ice after his leg injury. The Sabres will host the Senators as they start a five-game homestand tomorrow at 7 pm.
