  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Catching fire with two goals in three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/17) Girgensons played a season-high 16:09 against the Jets on Saturday and has scored two goals in his past three games, giving him five goals and eight points in 39 games this season.

    Girgensons will be centering the fourth line Tuesday against Philadelphia, but there's no denying his play has been trending up. The two-way center has scored just 12 goals since the 2015-16 season after scoring 15 in 2014-15. His limited production has seen his ice time drop to a career-low 12:16 per game this season, but has played at least 15 minutes in each of his past three games. Though he's not the most skilled player on offense, he consistently wins puck battles and on his best nights is a player that can drive possession. His fantasy value is limited at this point, but his hot streak may continue and he's considered a core part of the Sabres' long-term plans.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Expected to play bigger role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/17) Girgensons will assume more responsibilities with centers Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) and Johan Larsson (wrist/elbow) out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

    It's been a trying season for Girgensons, who is averaging just 11:59 TOI per game with six points in 36 games, putting him on pace for career lows across the board. He has just one goal and a minus-2 rating in his past four games, and will need to step up in a big way, especially on defense where the Sabres really need him. The two-way center had a very promising start to his career, but has been moved all over the lineup and switched from center to wing and then back to center this season in an effort to get him going, all without much success. The Sabres are hoping that Girgensons will take advantage of the opportunity, and he certainly still has the ability, but fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire until he starts scoring and plays to his potential.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Scores second goal of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/16) Girgensons scored his second goal of the season during Monday's overtime loss to Washington.

    After a promising sophomore season in 2014-15 (15 goals and 30 points over 61 games), Girgensons has just nine goals and 23 points over his past 96 games. He's completely off the fantasy radar outside of deep keeper/dynasty formats. It might take a change of scenery for Girgensons to find his offensive game, as he is clearly behind Jack Eichel and Ryan O'Reilly on the depth chart for the foreseeable future.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Can't get offense going

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/25/16) Girgensons played just 9:07 in Friday's loss at Washington and was held without a point, his 10th straight scoreless game.

    Girgensons was bucked down to the fourth line for this one, skating with Derek Grant and Matt Moulson. The former first-rounder has just four points through 20 games and should be nowhere near a fantasy roster right now.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Tallies helper Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/30/16) Girgensons had an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Jets.

    Manning the third-line center spot alongside Tyler Ennis and Sam Reinhart, the former first-round pick has three points in seven games this season, and could see an increase in production playing with skilled line mates, but will need to see more ice time (currently averaging a career-low 12:07 per game) to be a consistent fantasy threat.
