Numminen Speculation

From John Vogl at The Buffalo News,

Teppo Numminen made a rare appearance at HSBC Arena today, fueling speculation the defenseman could return to the Buffalo Sabres before the season ends.

The 39-year-old Numminen had stayed away from the arena since having a bursa sac procedure on his ankle early last month. He arrived at the rink with his equipment and was scheduled to skate this afternoon.

“I hadn’t seen him at the rink for quite some time,” coach Lindy Ruff said. “He had the procedure on his ankle, and that looks a lot better.”
