Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Ends game with overtime tally
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Okposo scored the game-winning goal during Friday's overtime win against Detroit.

It was Okposo's second consecutive game with a tally, and he's improved his season-long totals to 14 goals, 30 points and 111 shots through 44 games. He's capable of padding the scoresheet more frequently going forward, and a strong finish to the campaign isn't out of the question now that Buffalo is healthy up front. If there is a buy-low potential for Okposo acquiring him at a discount could pay off.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Selected for All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Okposo, who leads the Sabres with 12 goals and 27 points, has been selected for the NHL All-Star Game.

The 28-year-old winger is enjoying a productive season despite injuries to top centers Ryan O'Reilly and Jack Eichel. The big power forward has come exactly as advertised, using his strength and skill to provide another dimension to the Sabres' offense. Okposo is in the first season of the seven-year contract he inked with Buffalo this past summer. He remains a valuable fantasy player and is on pace to notch his fourth career 20-goal season.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Extends point streak to four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo had a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

Okposo has found the back of the net three times over his current four-game point streak. The former Islander topped 20 goals in two of his final three seasons downstate, and is well on pace to eclipse that mark once again with 12 tallies through 37 games up north. His subpar defensive play has remained constant as well, as Okposo's minus-2 plus-minus has him in the negatives for the sixth consecutive campaign.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Fails to register point in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Despite skating four minutes on the power play and 18:26 overall, Okposo finished without a point for the second straight game in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Florida.

After scoring five points in three games, Okposo's been held off the scoresheet in his past two, finishing with just a total of two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating. He currently leads all Sabres forwards in scoring with 22 points, but should be overtaken by Ryan O'Reilly (18) or Jack Eichel (eight points in 10 games) by the end of the season. Okposo continues to impress in his first season with Buffalo, however, and despite his recent scoring woes has registered at least one shot in each of his past 17 games -- a noteworthy feat for someone who doesn't shoot very much and has totaled over 200 shots in a season just twice in his career. He should be able to find the scoresheet Thursday against Carolina.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Helps out thrice to overthrow Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo handed out three assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 6-3 victory over Los Angeles.

This was an unusual sort of game for Okposo, who usually plays sniper rather than playmaker, but he definitely has a good thing going with Jack Eichel. The ex-Islander has proven to be an excellent addition for the Sabres -- sparking their power play, leading them in goals (nine) and points (21). He played through a stomach illness in this one, too, which is appreciated by Sabres fans and fantasy owners alike.
