  • Sabres' Johan Larsson: Signs extension Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/16) Larsson signed a one-year contract extension Friday, though financial terms were not disclosed.

    By signing the extension, Larsson avoids restricted free agency this summer. The 2010 second-round pick hasn't been able to produce much offensively since first joining the Sabres in 2013-14, but has served as a reliable third-line center.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Extends point streak to four games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/16) Larsson picked up an unassisted goal in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

    The 23-year-old hasn't been on the fantasy radar for most of the season, but has shown up in a big way lately. He now has a four-game point streak with three goals and three assists over that span. His 15:19 on the ice Tuesday was his lowest total in three games, but he made the most of it, adding three shots and two PIM to go along with the tally.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Picks up helper for points in three straight

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Larsson registered an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Larsson is clearly enjoying his increased opportunity as the season comes to a close, notching points in three straight to the tune of two goals and three apples (two on the power play). In that short stretch, the 23-year-old has been on ice for an average of 18:36, which is a huge jump from the 14:44 he's seen this year coming into Saturday. The winger has tied his career-high 16 points and has every opportunity to set a new milestone with just three games to go.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Picks up first-career multi-goal game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/16) Larsson scored two goals on his five shots and added 2 PIM in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

    It was Larsson's first career two-goal game and has now recorded his second consecutive two-point game. Larsson has been one of the strongest players for the Sabres down the stretch, as he's now picked up points in three of his last five games. Larsson time on the power play and chemistry with Brian Gionta and Marcus Foligno make him a great depth player in fantasy leagues.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Notches two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/16) Larsson played 19:15 and assisted on two goals in Buffalo's 5-4 shootout loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

    Larsson played a particularly strong game, though he only won 44 percent of his faceoffs. The versatile Swedish forward is once again racking up the scoring pace in the tail end of the season, much like he did last year, and now has three points in his past four games. He's finally found a regular role playing on a line with Brian Gionta and Marcus Foligno, and over the past two games has been a fixture on the power play. He's a good option as a late-season add for fantasy owners looking for a leg up during the stretch drive.

    April 2, 2015: Sabres' Larsson Sets Up Tying Goal
    Larsson set up Matt Moulson's game-tying third-period goal in an eventual 4-3 victory for the Sabres on Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.Larsson has recorded an assist in four of his last five games and has three goals and 10 points dating back to March 7. In addition, he's held down a plus-4 rating down that stretch, a surprising development considering the Sabres have lost nine of their last 12 games. The 22-year-old might make for a useful pickup in deeper formats over the final week of the season.
