  • Deslauriers recorded his first point -- an assist -- of the season during Friday's loss to Columbus. The 26-year-old winger has played just 35 games this season, and he's been in and out of the lineup all year. There is no reason to turn his way in any virtual settings at this stage of the game. Additionally, with a career high of just 15 points, it's unlikely Deslauriers' fantasy fortunes improve.

  • Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Likely scratch Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Deslauriers will be the odd-man out Thursday against Colorado if Evander Kane (flu) returns to the lineup, the Olean Times Herald reports. Deslauriers has played just 29 games this season as a depth forward for the Sabres, and has drawn in and out of the lineup in spot duty. After scoring 12 points the previous season, he's yet to register a point this season and registered just 15 shots on goal. He played just 5:58 against Ottawa and is not a fantasy relevant player.

  • Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Returns to lineup
    By RotoWire Staff

    Deslauriers, who sat out the past two games as a healthy scratch, will center the fourth line against the Rangers on Thursday, the Olean Times Herald reports. Not only will Deslauriers replace Cal O'Reilly in the lineup, he will play center for the first time in his career. Originally a defenseman, Deslauriers' skating ability and versatility has now seen him play every single position except goalie, and head coach Dan Bylsma believes that his strong work down low -- a key skill for any center -- will help with the transition. Don't expect Deslauriers to play much, however, as Jack Eichel and Ryan O'Reilly will continue to take the key draws. The Sabres' lack of depth scoring has been a big problem this season, and playing Deslauriers at center is clearly an experiment. He has zero points and a minus-5 rating in 23 games this season and has very little fantasy value other than his 67 hits.

  • Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Sits out Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Deslauriers will be a healthy scratch Friday against Detroit, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports. With Tyler Ennis returning to the lineup, Deslauriers will sit out for the second time in three games. He sat out Monday against Dallas when Ennis returned to the lineup, played Tuesday after Ennis was a healthy scratch for precautionary measures, and will sit out again Friday. As the Sabres ease Ennis back into the lineup, it looks like Deslauriers will be the odd-man out when Ennis draws in. Deslauriers has zero points and a minus-5 rating in 22 games this season. Although his physical play is valuable, the Sabres are aiming to score more goals. His fantasy is value is limited to his 66 hits this season.

  • Deslauriers will be sitting out Monday's game against the Stars, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. Tyler Ennis returns to the lineup and has been slotted in as the team's top left winger, and between Deslauriers and William Carrier, the latter has been the better player of late. Head coach Dan Bylsma will likely establish a rotation between Deslauriers, Carrier and Cal O'Reilly as he tries to figure out which combinations will give them the best chance to win every night. Deslauriers is a physical winger who plays hard almost every shift, but through 21 games has yet to record a point and has a minus-4 rating. His fantasy value, asides from his 62 hits, is very minimal.
