  • Sabres' Johan Larsson: Protected by Sabres

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

    Despite appearing in just 36 games last season, the Sabres opted to protect Larsson, who was on pace for career highs across the board. It took Larsson awhile to find his groove in Buffalo, but once he had settled in as the third-line center, he showed marked improvement in all facets of the game. His showing was promising enough for the Sabres to protect him for the expansion draft, and he's expected to re-sign with the team soon. Larsson should be able to make a full recovery from his wrist injury that forced him to miss all of the 2017 calendar year, and upon his return will likely return to a similar role.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Making progress

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Larsson recently had the pins in his wrist taken out and says he's "weeks out" from a full recovery, The Buffalo News reports.

    Larsson missed all of the 2017 calendar year, suffering his season-ending injury on Dec. 31 against the Bruins. Larsson was just getting into a groove during the time of his injury, forming a dependable third line with Marcus Foligno and Brian Gionta. He enters the summer as a restricted free agent, and given Buffalo's lack of depth down the middle, there's a chance he'll get re-signed to a short-term deal. He finished the season with 11 points in 36 games, and has shown enough offense in the AHL to be a potential top-nine forward in the NHL.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Reportedly done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/2/17) Larsson (wrist) will miss the rest of the season, per a report from Gotland Newspapers in Sweden via NHL.com on Monday.

    Apparently, Larsson sent a text message to a Swedish reporter, saying "unfortunately my season is over". His original return timetable following surgery was 2-to-3 weeks, so this is obviously devastating news for the 24-year-old. The left winger's 11 points in 36 games haven't moved the fantasy needle much, but would have amounted to somewhere around the 25-point mark over a full season, which would have eclipsed his previous career high of 17 set last year.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Out indefinitely after wrist surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/2/17) Larsson (wrist) is out indefinitely after needing surgery to repair a wrist he injured on Saturday, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.

    The center will likely be out 2-3 weeks recovering if all goes well. He was averaging 16:51 minutes per game before the injury, but only had 11 points in 36 games, so when he returns, play him with caution.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Will miss weeks with dislocated wrist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/16) Larsson sustained a dislocated wrist in Saturday's game against the Bruins and will be out for weeks, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    While opposing the Bruins in the matinee, Larsson leaned into defenseman Adam McQuaid on a rush toward the puck only to get plastered into the end boards. While Larsson has been confined to a bottom-six role, the Sabres will miss his two-way acumen with three games coming up in a four-day span, starting with Tuesday's road match against the Rangers. Don't be surprised if Larsson ends up on IR soon.
