Nelson is without a point since returning from injury. Nelson has been held pointless in the nine games he's played since re-joining the Sabres. In total, he hasn't produced during the past 12 contests he's appeared in. He has five points throughout 31 games this season. Nelson doesn't bring much fantasy value to the table.
Nelson is in the lineup Monday against the Maple Leafs, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Nelson has spent most of the season dealing with an upper-body injury, and he hasn't played since Dec. 4. Now he's healthy, while Nathan Beaulieu has been traded. That gives Nelson opportunity to earn his first playing time since the calendar turned to 2019.
Nelson (upper body) will not play Sunday in New Jersey, but will travel to Florida on Tuesday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports. Nelson has been out since Dec. 4 after suffering an upper-body injury. He's scored five points in 22 games while averaging under 15 minutes of ice time per game. He should slot back into a top-four role on the blue line upon his return.
Nelson (upper body) returned from his conditioning stint with AHL Rochester and is expected to play Sunday versus the Devils, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Nelson hasn't played an NHL game since Dec. 4, but he was able to play in five minor-league games during his conditioning assignment. A roster spot still needs to be opened up and Nelson needs to be activated from injured reserve before he can enter the lineup.
Nelson (upper body) will join AHL Rochester on a conditioning assignment, the club announced Friday. Nelson figures to suit up for at least the Americans' games versus Springfield and Utica on Friday and Saturday, respectively, but could spend a little more time with the minor-league club depending on how those outings go. The blueliner -- who has been sidelined since Dec. 4 versus Toronto -- could crack the 10-point mark for the first time in his career once healthy, though the 20-point threshold is likely unattainable given his lengthy absence from the lineup.
