With the Sabres being one of seven NHL teams that won't be part of the playoffs, Larsson has played his last game of 2019-20 and will soon become an unrestricted free agent, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Lysowski surmises that GM Jason Botterill will want to retain Larsson, as the forward won't be expensive and he's always capably filled a bottom-line, penalty-killing role with they Sabres. Quietly, he's one of the team's longest tenured players after being acquired from the Wild in 2013. He reached his career high in points this season with 18 as well as a plus-8 rating, but there's not much to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Larsson notched an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Jets. Larsson notched a secondary helper on Rasmus Ristolainen's third-period goal, but it didn't spark a comeback for the Sabres, who lost their fourth straight contest. The 27-year-old Larsson now has a career-high 18 points this season, and he fits in well in a fourth-line role, posting a 50.7 Corsi For percentage this year.
Larsson (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Senators, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Originally deemed a game-time decision after taking a maintenance day Monday, Larsson is ready to center the fourth line. He's coming off a two-point outing against the Maple Leafs, but his fantasy dependability is low with him having just 15 points through 52 games.
Larsson, who took a maintenance day Monday, will take part in warmups ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa in order to determine if he can play, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Larsson continues to be a streaky player for the Sabres, as he's racked up three points in his last four games, which was preceded by a 19-game pointless streak. Assuming he plays, fantasy owners may want to try to strike while the iron is hot, especially given the matchup with a struggling Senators squad.
Larsson scored a goal and dished an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs. Larsson opened the scoring at 1:32 of the second period, and he later helped out on Kyle Okposo's tally in the third. The Swede is up to 15 points, 49 shots and 74 hits through 52 contests this season, just two points shy of his career high.
