    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Will play Friday

    McCabe will draw into the lineup Friday against Detroit. McCabe did not play in the Sabres' previous game but will draw in with Josh Gorges (undisclosed) out with an injury. He'll slot into the second pairing with Cody Franson and attempt to get back on track with his play tailing off a little recently.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Probable for Tuesday

    McCabe is probable for Tuesday's game against Minnesota. McCabe exited Sunday's game with a lower-body injury but was a full participant at practice and is "probable" against Minnesota. The former Wisconsin Badger captain has emerged as a top-four defenseman for the Sabres this season and will likely play his usual 18-20 minutes per game. Minnesota's a tough opponent so it's unlikely McCabe adds to his point total. He has eight points through 39 games this season.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Exits with lower-body injury

    McCabe didn't play in the last 9:40 of Sunday's game against the Jets due to a lower-body injury, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports. It's unclear exactly what caused McCabe's injury, but the team didn't provide any further update on his status following the contest. If he's unable to dress for Tuesday's game against the Wild, expect either Mike Weber or Mark Pysyk to draw back in.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Scores for first time since October

    McCabe scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-0 win over Anaheim. The tally was the young blueliner's first since Oct. 27, and he recorded just two helpers in the lengthy interim. In fact, McCabe hadn't even exceeded one shot on goal in a game since Nov. 25, further highlighting how rare outings like this have been. As a former second-round pick who's shown some offensive ability both in college and at the AHL level, McCabe does still have offensive upside, but the 22-year-old isn't playing the sort of minutes that'll help him realize it in the near term.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Snaps four-game goalless drought

    McCabe scored his second goal of the season Tuesday against the Flyers. It was also the first game McCabe logged over 20 minutes of ice time, a clear sign that he's been playing much better and head coach Dan Bylsma's increased confidence in playing the 22-year-old. The former Wisconsin Badgers captain is quickly developing into a two-way, top-four defenseman, and along with Rasmus Ristolainen and Cody Franson may be the best fantasy options from Buffalo's blue line so far this season. He's worth keeping an eye on, and feel free to pick him up when he starts playing more than 20 minutes a night regularly and scores more consistently.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Nets first career NHL goal in loss Thursday

    McCabe scored his first NHL goal in Thursday's loss to the Panthers. McCabe did a nice job joining the odd-man rush and was rewarded when Marcus Foligno sent a centering pass that he buried to cut the Panthers' lead to one. He was playing in just his 12th NHL game, so it was a big milestone for the 22-year-old defenseman, who was recalled from Rochester on Monday. He only played 14:44 and was used primarily as a penalty killer, so his fantasy upside appears to be very low moving forward.

    Sabres' Jake McCabe: Recalled from AHL Rochester

    McCabe was called up Monday morning, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News. No explicit reason was given for the call-up since the Sabres are carrying seven defensemen already, but it would be an odd move to call up McCabe and not play him. The Sabres play Columbus on Monday.
