Moulson put himself on the score sheet in back-to-back games for the first time this season following Saturday's game against Nashville. Moulson managed to put together his first scoring streak of the season, netting one assist in each of his last two games. The 32-year-old left winger is averaging over two and half minutes per game on Buffalo's secondary power-play unit. Moulson's ability to get on the score sheet is having a clear impact on the Sabres, who have won four of the last five games in which he recorded a point.
Moulson took a minor hooking penalty Tuesday against Philadelphia, giving him six penalty minutes on the season. If fantasy owners are looking for peripheral stats from Moulson, they won't get much from the gentlemanly player. He took just two minor penalties the previous season and just four the season before that. He now has 100 PIM in 483 career games. Since Evander Kane's injury (ankle), Moulson has seen his ice time creep up, but remains a fringe fantasy option given his minimal production and sparse usage on the team's top line. He remains a fixture on the power play, but hasn't done much damage there.
