O'Reilly scored a goal and added an assist during Monday's 5-3 win over Toronto. The Buffalo assistant captain has now marked the scoresheet in four consecutive games to improve to 19 tallies and 30 helpers for the campaign. He should cruise past last season's 55 points, especially with his increased offensive role while Jack Eichel (ankle) is out of the lineup. Fantasy owners shouldn't overlook O'Reilly's shortcomings in the secondary statistics, though. He's sporting a minus-10 rating and hardly tilts the scales in the PIM, hit and blocked shot columns.
O'Reilly's power-play assist Wednesday against the Lightning gives him points in back-to-back games. With Jack Eichel (ankle sprain) out of the lineup, O'Reilly is once again being leaned on heavily, averaging over 21 minutes per game since February. The veteran center is on pace for his fifth consecutive 50-point season and third consecutive 20-goal season. The Sabres have had trouble scoring all season, but if there's any Sabre worth having on fantasy rosters right now it's undoubtedly O'Reilly.
O'Reilly recorded a goal, two assists and six shots during Tuesday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay. The Buffalo captain has now posted consecutive three-point games with Jack Eichel (ankle) out of the lineup. Eichel is expected to miss approximately a month of action, so O'Reilly will be tasked with even tougher minutes over the coming weeks. It's worth noting that the 27-year-old center is on track to take a run at topping his previous career-high point total of 64.
O'Reilly scored a power-play goal and contributed two shorthanded assists in Sunday's loss to Colorado. O'Reilly had a dynamic outing against his former team, but it wasn't quite enough in a 6-4 loss. The Sabres continue to struggle, but you wouldn't know it by O'Reilly's recent production. The 27-year-old has racked up six goals in his last nine games and is now at 40 points through 55 games. His 10 power-play goals and four shorthanded points illustrate just how much value he truly has. Look for him to be the key offensive catalyst in Buffalo now that superstar forward Jack Eichel (ankle) is out indefinitely.
O'Reilly scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Edmonton. O'Reilly beat Cam Talbot to make it 2-0 in the first minute of the second period and got one by backup Al Montoya with the extra man to conclude the scoring later in the middle frame. With 13 goals in 47 games, O'Reilly's on pace to top 20 for the fourth time in the past five seasons.
