  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Might head to KHL
    By RotoWire Staff

    Girgensons, a pending restricted free agent, may join the KHL, WGR 550 reports. The report indicates that Girgensons is growing tired of not knowing what his role would be with the Sabres in 2016-17. A first-round (14th overall) selection in the 2012 draft, The Latvian Locomotive lost steam offensively this past season with Dan Blysma replacing Ted Nolan behind the bench -- the 22-year-old recorded just seven goals and 11 assists in 71 games, which was a 12-point drop from the previous campaign. Of course, it doesn't help that his average ice time fell more than four minutes per game to 15:02. It's going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.

  • Girgensons played a career-high 71 games this season but finished with only seven goals and 11 assists. It was a bumpy third year for the Latvian forward, who was expected to improve on his 15-goal sophomore campaign. But the arrival of Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart relegated him to a more defensive role, and saw his power-play ice time drop to 0:51 per game from 2:04. However, the Sabres are on the rise and with a logjam at center head coach Dan Bylsma may elect to play Girgensons on the left wing on Eichel and Reinhart's line. That's a big bonus for fantasy owners. Right now he's a late-round flyer.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Practices on top line
    By RotoWire Staff

    Girgensons skated with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart at Monday's practice, reports Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News. With Ryan O'Reilly (foot) skating in a non-contact jersey at practice and with all signs indicating for a return sooner than later, head coach Dan Bylsma took Evander Kane off the top line and plugged in Girgensons, putting all his kids on one line. Reinhart and Eichel have established incredible chemistry of late, and it's likely that Bylsma is hoping Girgensons' two-way, physical game can open up the ice. "Disco Dan" is a notorious line juggler, however, which means Girgensons' stint on the top line may be short, especially with just 14 points in 59 games on the season. Until Girgensons sticks with the line and starts scoring, he continues to be a very fringe fantasy asset.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Will return Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Girgensons (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Avalanche. Girgensons spent the minimum amount of time required on injured reserve due to the lower-body issue, and his return should strengthen the Sabres lines a bit. Still, he's set to center the third line on one of the league's worst offensive teams (27th in scoring), and his 11 points through 45 contests don't make him a very attractive fantasy option.

  • Girgensons (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's matchup with Colorado, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports. Girgensons has missed the Sabres' last three contests with a lower-body injury, but returned to practice Saturday, and reportedly felt "ready to go" for Sunday's game after the session. The 22-year-old forward is still on injured reserve, however, and will need to be activated before returning to Buffalo's lineup. Fantasy owners likely won't be concerned with the former first-round pick's status either way, as he's only managed to tally 11 points (five goals, six assits) in 45 games this season.
