The Sabres, who are down to their last three regular-season games, will re-introduce Moulson and Nicolas Deslauriers to their lineup Wednesday, at the expense of C.J. Smith and William Carrier. Per the report, Moulson -- a healthy scratch Monday -- is projected to skate on a line with Deslauriers and Zemgus Girgensons in his return to the mix. The 33-year-old winger has recorded 14 goals and 32 points in 78 games to date.
Moulson registered two assists -- one on the power play -- during Monday's win over Florida.
After scoring just eight goals and 21 points last year, Moulson has improved to 14 tallies and 17 assists this season.

Proportionately, Moulson's production is more likely to occur on the power play, a place where he has accumulated 16 of his 28 points this season (and 10 of his 13 goals). He may provide sneaky late-season value if he can continue to deliver this way.

After a difficult second season with Buffalo that saw him score just eight goals and 21 points in 81 games last year, Moulson has rebounded with nine goals and 18 points in 44 games this season, including 12 on the power play. He's still buried on the fourth line most nights, but head coach Dan Bylsma has not hesitated to move him up the lineup when injuries have hit the
