      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.

      News: Jake McCabe, who was named AHL Rochester's co-Rookie of the Year the previous season, is in a tough four-man battle for a roster spot, reports The Buffalo News.
      Analysis: As it stands, the former Wisconsin Badgers captain will have to battle AHL teammate Chad Ruhwedel, former Islander Matt Donovan and journeyman Bobby Sanguinetti for a spot on the Sabres' lineup.

He's an excellent two-way player with a good wrist shot and a nose for the physical side of the game, but in all likelihood will begin the season in AHL Rochester. He's a future top-four defenseman for the Sabres, but that will be further down the road.
