  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Remains Sabres property

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/17) Girgensons received a qualifying offer from the Sabres, making him a restricted free agent.

    Girgensons had a very tough season, scoring just seven goals and 16 points in his fourth year in the league after scoring 52 points in his first two seasons. Girgensons spent much of the season toiling on the fourth line, and was deployed at center and on the wing in an effort to get him going, but usually to no avail. The 23-year-old enters a key stretch of his development, and the Sabres qualified him partly because they know he has much more to offer. It's likely that Girgensons settles for another short-term contract to prove himself, but will face competition in camp from Johan Larsson, who leapfrogged Girgensons on the depth chart this past season.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Exempt from expansion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Girgensons will not be made available to Vegas for the expansion draft.

    Despite a frustrating season that saw him post career lows in goals and assists and saw his role diminish, the Sabres obviously still see some potential in the former first-round pick. At just 22 years old, Girgensons still has tons of room for improvement, and the Sabres still envision him as a two-way, third-line center behind Jack Eichel and Ryan O'Reilly. Girgensons is a restricted free agent, but he's unlikely to command a long-term deal and will likely settle for a short-term bridge deal instead.

    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.
