Mittelstadt posted an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Penguins. Mittelstadt set up Tage Thompson's second-period tally, which briefly tied the game at 2-2. The 22-year-old Mittelstadt continues to impress as the second-line center. He has 17 points and 41 shots on net in his last 21 games. The Minnesota native has 22 points, 60 shots and a minus-10 rating in 40 contests overall.
Mittelstadt picked up two assists, one short-handed, in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Bruins. The 22-year-old extended his point streak to five games with the performance. Mittelstadt has been one of the few Sabres to step up in the absence of Jack Eichel (neck), and despite the lack of talent around him in the lineup, Mittelstadt has racked up an impressive nine goals and 16 points over the last 18 games.
Mittelstadt produced a power-play assist and went minus-3 in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers. Mittelstadt helped out on Victor Olofsson's second-period tally. Other than that, Mittelstadt didn't help out a lot. The 22-year-old center is up to 17 points, 47 shots on net and a minus-8 rating through 34 contests. Twelve of his points have come in the last 15 games after he shook off an abysmal start to the campaign.
Mittelstadt scored a short-handed goal on four shots in a 5-2 win over the Capitals on Thursday. Mittelstadt beat Vitek Vanecek with a wrister off the inside of the far post to put the Sabres on top 3-1. Things seem to finally be clicking for the 22-year-old Mittelstadt, who has amassed five goals and seven points with a plus-6 rating over eight April contests. The 2017 first-rounder had just six points and was minus-13 in his first 20 games, so his emergence would be a badly needed positive development in an otherwise dismal season in Buffalo.
Mittelstadt scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Tuesday's 5-3 win over New Jersey. After dishing a helper in the opening frame, Mittelstadt broke a 3-3 tie with his power-play marker just after the halfway point in the third period for just the second game-winning goal of his 136-game NHL career. The eighth overall pick from the 2017 draft has struggled to get a foothold in the NHL, though Mittelstadt appears to be figuring things out with five points in his last four games.
