  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Comes off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/17) Girgensons (mid-body) has been activated and barring any kind of setback will play Saturday against Colorado.

    Girgensons has missed the past seven games due to what head coach Dan Bylsma called an "internal mid-body" injury. His play had begun to pick up when he suffered the injury, playing between 15-19 minutes per night, which is much higher than his season average of 13:19. While his offensive production is still lacking, Girgensons is a versatile player who's simply going through some growing pains. Keep in mind that he's just 23 years old, and that his two-way game is already much more developed than most of his peers. He'll likely center the third line upon his return behind Ryan O'Reilly and Jack Eichel.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Skating but not cleared for contact

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/17) Girgensons (mid-body) has skated the past two days but hasn't been cleared for contact, the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Girgensons has missed the past four games and will miss Thursday's tilt with the Avalanche. Not being cleared for contact indicates that the Latvian two-way center is still some time away from returning to game action, and head coach Dan Bylsma has been rather vague with Girgensons' injury, calling it an "internal mid-body injury." Though his ice time has dipped for the third straight season this year, Girgensons is still considered a key part of Buffalo's future. With just 13 points in 53 games this season he has very limited fantasy value.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Girgensons (abdomen) was moved to injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Girgensons has missed the last three games, and Evan Rodrigues has been filling in in the bottom six. The center is a modest offensive threat with physical upside, albeit with next to no power-play ice time. The penalty-killer is eligible to return Feb. 16, yet he will still be evaluated further. Although the 23-year-old doesn't find the scoresheet often, he has been racking up hits for the Sabres lately.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Will be reevaluated Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/17) Girgensons (mid-body) will be reevaluated when the team gets back from their trip to Ottawa on Tuesday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.

    Girgensons, who has already missed the Sabres' last three contests, will have to watch Tuesday's matchup on TV. Prior to getting hurt, the center was bogged down in a six-game pointless streak during which he fired just 11 shots on goals, recorded two PIM, and dished out 12 hits. Certainly not a prolific scorer, fantasy owners likely were expecting more out of the 23-year-old who managed 30 points in his sophomore campaign and seemed to be trending upward. With the Latvian out, Evan Rodrigues will enjoy some time in the NHL.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Won't play Saturday in Toronto

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Girgensons (mid-body) is considered "more than day-to-day" and has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup in Toronto, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.

    Girgensons is guaranteed to miss a second game in a row and could potentially miss more based on this assessment. Wary fantasy owners will want to check back for updates on his status, but the Latvian pivot hasn't done much to deserve high ownership thus far -- he's recorded just six goals and seven assists through 53 games, though his average ice time has been steadily increasing recently.
