  • Sabres' Bogosian Gathers Two Assists In Win

    News: Zach Bogosian picked up two assists in Monday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.
    Analysis: With an average of 26:48 of ice time since joining the Sabres in February, Zach Bogosian is clearly the team's top defenseman. Even so, it hasn't translated to much fantasy utility outside of formats than value hits and PIM, as Bogosian has delivered no goals and six assists in his 19 games with Buffalo. We've been waiting for the production to match his pedigree for a while now, but that's unlikely to be realized until the Sabres turn into a far more competitive squad.

    Analysis: Zach Bogosian returns for a much-anticipated game between two of the league's worst teams, with the ultimate prize being Connor McDavid in the upcoming NHL draft. Bogosian has been a stalwart for the Sabres since coming over from Winnipeg via trade and is expected to continue where he left off as the team's biggest minutes eater. If Bogosian dresses, the odd-man out is likely to be Nikita Zadorov, who didn't have a strong game Saturday against Nashville. Bogosian will offer some peripherals and is the undisputed No. 1 defenseman for Buffalo and is a medium-risk, medium-upside play Thursday.
