  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Pots goal Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gionta scored his seventh goal of the season Wednesday in a 4-2 win over Montreal. Gionta's tally was of the empty-net variety and put the game on ice for Buffalo with 13 seconds remaining. The veteran has scored twice in the last three games and is shooting the puck quite a bit lately (17 SOG in his last five games), and while he's not likely to provide much by way of fantasy value, the seven-time 20-goal scorer is worth jotting down on your watch list.

  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Collects two points in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gionta notched an assist and then a goal in a 20-second span during the first period of Tuesday's 3-2 win over Minnesota. First, the veteran winger won a rare faceoff to Rasmus Ristolainen, whose shot from long distance was tipped home; mere moments later, Gionta was there to deflect a Josh Gorges shot past Devan Dubnyk to give the Sabres a 3-0 lead. That one held up as the game-winner -- his first of the season. Of course, with just 15 points in 40 games this year, Gionta's still fairly washed up from a fantasy perspective. It's hard to imagine owners employing his services for any reason other than pure desperation.

  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Picks up assist in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gionta tallied an assist in 15:36 worth of ice time in Sunday's win over the Jets. It's the fourth consecutive game Gionta has skated fewer than 16 minutes -- over two full minutes down from his season average. The 36-year-old is nowhere near the pace of his younger days, but he's up to 13 points through 39 contests.

  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Scores assist Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gionta assisted on Evander Kane's game-tying power-play goal Tuesday to give him two points in his past three games. The Sabres captain also played a season-high 22:17 on the second line with Jack Eichel. The 36-year-old's best days are clearly behind him, but continues to have head coach Dan Bylsma's trust. He has just eight points in 22 games this season, rendering him a free agent in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. If he gets hot, however, he would be a short-term option to consider.

  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Getting back to speed
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gionta hasn't found the back of the net, but has dished out four assists in 11 games this season. Gionta is coming off a solid season in which he registered 13 goals and added 22 assists in 69 games. The 36-year-old winger missed the first three games of the 2015-16 due to a lingering lower body injury, but has now found a spot on the top line with counterparts Matt Moulson and Ryan O'Reilly. Although Gionta has not scored this year, he will likely continue to see opportunities to produce on the first-unit power play with rookie phenom Jack Eichel.
