  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Selected for All-Star Game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/17) 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 year of a seven-year contract, which was signed this past summer. He remains a valuable fantasy player and on pace to notch his fourth career 20-goal season.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Extends point streak to four

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) 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 a point in second straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/16) Despite skating 4 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 score sheet in his past two games, 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 score sheet Thursday against Carolina.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Helps out thrice to overthrow Kings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/16) 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.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Active for Tuesday's matchup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/16) Okposo (illness) is in the lineup for Tuesday's home matchup with the Kings, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

    Okposo was absent from Monday's morning practice due to a stomach bug but it appears it was never anything major as he'll return without missing an NHL game. The right winger has recently been on a point-tallying binge, racking up eight over his past nine games, and will look to keep it rolling on the Sabres' second line with Jack Eichel and Evander Kane.
