Moulson stretched his point streak to three games and three points (one goal, two assists) with an assist in Tuesday's game against the Sharks. Moulson's game is slowing down, but he has managed a respectable six points (one goal, five assists) in his last 10 games. Proportionately, Moulson's production is more likely to occur on the power play, a place where he has accumulated 16 of his 28 points this season (and 10 of his 13 goals). He may provide sneaky late-season value if he can continue to deliver this way.
Friday's tilt against Detroit will be the 600th regular season game of Moulson's career. After a difficult second season with Buffalo that saw him score just eight goals and 21 points in 81 games last year, Moulson has rebounded with nine goals and 18 points in 44 games this season, including 12 on the power play. He's still buried on the fourth line most nights, but head coach Dan Bylsma has not hesitated to move him up the lineup when injuries have hit the Sabres' top-six. There's an outside chance Moulson scores 20 goals this season, which would be his highest total since 2013. He may be able to capitalize against Detroit's poor goaltending Friday, but remains of minimal fantasy value in most leagues.
Moulson dished out a pair of helpers, and added three shots Thursday against the Bruins. Moulson assisted on both of his team's goals in this 4-2 loss, with his second helper coming on the power play. This performance broke a five-game pointless streak for the veteran winger, who is skating on the first line and top power-play unit despite the lack of production.
Moulson notched a pair of assists in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Kings. He saw some time alongside Jack Eichel and Kyle Okposo, and the result was a pair of secondary helpers on Eichel goals with Okposo getting the primary assists. However, Moulson had to share that excellent duo with Evander Kane. The veteran winger had been an iceberg over the past 11 games, notching just two points and 11 shots; his ice time had been dropping, too, with less than 10 minutes in three straight games before Tuesday's bounce-back to 12:51. He's slightly outperforming expectations on the whole, but fantasy owners should still moderate theirs.
Moulson scored a power-play goal during a loss to the Devils on Friday. The goal snapped an eight-game goal drought, which highlights how unreliable Moulson has been as a fantasy contributor after starting the season with four goals through the first five games of the campaign. The 33-year-old veteran is off the fantasy radar in the majority of leagues, especially since he could be bumped out of a top-six role once Buffalo is completely healthy.
