  • Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Returns to top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) Deslauriers practiced on the top line Monday.

    The hard-working forward was promoted to the top line following Matt Moulson's demotion, and it seems like head coach Dan Bylsma likes what he brings to the table on a line with Evander Kane and Ryan O'Reilly. Deslauriers has just 10 goals on the season, but three of them have come from playing on the same line as O'Reilly, indicating that the two have some chemistry. He's a short-term gamble for fantasy owners looking for some immediate returns, but long-term Deslaurier's skill set is more suited to a checking line role. He works hard and hangs around the net, so there's a chance a few passes and shots from Kane or O'Reilly will lead to some goals.

    Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Scores first goal since Oct. 30

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/16) Deslauriers' fourth goal of the season in Thursday's 6-3 win against Calgary was his first in 42 games.

    The fourth-line banger isn't noted for his offense, so his cold streak shouldn't be surprising, but it's good to see Buffalo's bottom-six coming through on offense. He has just 47 shots on goal but also 152 hits on the season, making his fantasy value limited to specific leagues.

    Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Will return Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/16) Sabres coach Dan Blysma confirmed that Deslauriers (lower body) will return Wednesday against the Canadiens, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

    Deslauriers has been given the green light to come back from his lower-body injury after reportedly looking good in practice Tuesday. A physical winger, Deslauriers is averaging 2.68 hits per game this season and that's second only to Evander Kane in terms of hits output among Sabres.

    Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Expected to play Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/1/16) Deslauriers (lower body) is expected to rejoin the lineup Wednesday, Bill Hoppe of NHL.com reports.

    Deslauriers hasn't played since being diagnosed with a lower-body injury in early January, but it sounds as though that streak of absences may end Wednesday. Even if he does return as expected, the 24-year-old winger has just seven points in 38 games this season, and averages just 9:39 of ice time, making him a rather unattractive fantasy addition.

    Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers: Placed on injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/16) Deslauriers (lower body) is on the injured reserve, according to the team's website.

    Deslauriers missed Tuesday's game against Florida with a lower-body injury and will be out 3-5 weeks. He reportedly suffered the injury last Saturday against Detroit and he is expected to return in February. The fourth-line winger was a spark plug and one of the team's most physical players, leading the team with 102 hits.

  • March 31, 2015: Sabres' Deslauriers Gets Assist, Five Hits In Win
    Deslauriers registered an assist and supplied five hits in Monday's win over the Coyotes.Deslauriers is an above-average source of hits (246) and PIM (69), but the offensive production has been far too limited for fantasy players to make much use of him. Couple the lack of scoring with the minus-22 rating Deslauriers currently sits on, and it's tough to find any format where the positives outweigh the negatives.
