McCabe recorded an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Jets. The 22-year-old defender assisted on Kyle Okposo's opening goal in the first period and now has two assists in seven games while logging 17:56 in ice time per game.
McCabe signed a three-year, $4.8 million contract extension with the Sabres on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. McCabe was a solid defender for the Sabres last season, notching 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) with a plus-6 rating over 77 games. The former Wisconsin Badgers captain will likely slot into a top-four role with the Sabres in 2016-17, but won't be a great option in most fantasy leagues due to his lack of offensive upside.
McCabe found the back of the net in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Pittsburgh. The tally was the first for the defenseman since Dec. 17. He also came up with two blocks, four hits, and finished with a rating of plus-2. McCabe has just 14 points this season, meaning that he's not on the fantasy radar, even in deeper formats.
McCabe (foot) is in the lineup against the Wild on Saturday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. McCabe left Thursday's game against Calgary after blocking a shot, but evidently the injury was minor. The 22-year-old is averaging 18:24 of ice time this season with 11 points in 60 games.
McCabe left Thursday's game against the Flames after blocking a shot, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. McCabe blocked a shot with his foot and came off the ice straight to the locker room for his second-straight game. The former Wisconsin Badger has picked up his play of late, but has 11 points in 59 games this season with a minus-4 rating.
