Top Mark Pysyk News

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Scores equalizer Thursday

    Pysyk scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Wild.

    Pysyk one-timed a centering pass from Vinnie Hinostroza to tie the game at 2-2 in the third period. The goal was Pysyk's first of the season. He's at six points, 36 shots on net, 45 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 29 contests, mainly playing in a second- or third-pairing role.

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Helpers in consecutive contests

    Pysyk produced an assist, three blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

    Pysyk has picked up two of his three helpers this year in the last two games. The 29-year-old blueliner isn't known to contribute much on offense -- his career high in points is 18 in 58 games when he was deployed as winger with the Panthers in 2019-20. He's added 18 blocks, 12 hits, 16 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 13 outings this year.

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Back in Buffalo

    Pysyk signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Sabres on Wednesday.

    Pysyk found little success with the Stars last year, posting just four points in 36 contests in a limited role. The 29-year-old began his NHL career in Buffalo, where he spent four seasons before joining the Panthers. Pysyk will likely see bottom-four minutes with the Sabres, although he also has experience as a bottom-six forward.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Lights lamp in final frame

    Pysyk scored a goal on three shots and had two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Pysyk pulled the Stars to within 3-2 early in the third period when he cleaned up a loose puck from the bottom of the right faceoff circle. It was just the third goal of the year for the veteran defenseman, although two of those have come in his last six contests.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Provides big third-period goal

    Pysyk scored the game-tying goal and had four shots Saturday in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Red Wings.

    Pysyk was the only Dallas skater to log fewer than 10 minutes of ice time, but he picked up a critical goal 3:52 into the third period when he located a loose puck in the blue paint and swept it home to tie the game at 1-1. It was just the second goal of the season for Pysyk, who last lit the lamp Feb. 11 against Carolina. The depth utility player has three points and a plus-6 rating in 30 games on the year.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Returns to lineup

    Pysyk (lower body) will suit up in Thursday's game against the Red Wings, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The 29-year-old will return to the lineup after a four-game absence dealing with the lower-body issue. Pysyk has had a quiet season to this point, supplying two points, 29 hits and 14 blocks across 12:10 of average ice time in 28 appearances. He'll return to the lineup as the team's seventh defenseman for Thursday's clash.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Out again Monday

    Pysyk (lower body) will not be available for Monday's game against Detroit..

    Pysyk has now missed three straight games and four of the last five. He'll be questionable for Tuesday's rematch with the Red Wings, but he doesn't have a timetable to return as of now. The 29-year-old has two points in 28 games this season.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Can't go Saturday

    Pysyk (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Pysyk will miss a second straight game. The 29-year-old has put up two points and 28 shots through 28 games this season. Sami Vatanen will stay in the lineup until Pysyk returns.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Out with lower-body injury

    Pysyk (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Blue Jackets.

    Pysyk has only been a part-time player for the Stars over the last month, so his absence won't have much of a fantasy impact. Joel Hanley and Sami Vatanen will work on the third pairing with Pysyk out of action.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Earns first assist of campaign

    Pysyk recorded an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Pysyk's shot attempt in the first period was deflected by Andrew Cogliano for the opening tally. The 29-year-old Pysyk hasn't provided much scoring for the Stars with two points in 23 appearances. He's had an injury-riddled campaign, but even when healthy, the Alberta native doesn't figure to see more than a third-pairing role.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Back from IR

    Pysyk (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Tuesday.

    Pysyk has missed the last six games. He'll be available for Tuesday's game versus the Lightning. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about Pysyk's return, as he's recorded just one point through 20 games this year.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Surfaces on injured reserve

    Pysyk (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to March 11.

    Pysyk was believed to be over the lower-body injury when he was deemed a healthy scratch Tuesday versus the Lightning, but he's apparently had a setback. With the retroactive designation, Pysyk will be eligible to be activated at any point going forward, as he's already missed the requisite three games and seven days of action. It's unlikely he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Predators.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Set to sit as healthy scratch

    Pysyk (lower body) is expected to sit as a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay, NHL.com reports.

    Pysyk was dealing with a lower-body issue, but he's evidently now healthy and simply sitting as an extra body. He's potted one goal in 20 games this campaign.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Remains out Sunday

    Pysyk (lower body) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Unavailable Saturday

    Pysyk (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Pysyk is considered day-to-day, and he could return to action for Sunday's rematch. Joel Hanley will slot into the lineup until Pysyk is ready to return.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: First goal with Stars

    Pysyk scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Pysyk's second-period tally was his first point in 11 games with the Stars since he signed a one-year contract in October. The 29-year-old blueliner has maintained a steady role on the third pairing -- he's fifth in the pecking order among Stars defensemen, but he's not likely to produce much offense. Pysyk had a career-high 18 points in just 58 games last year, but he often worked as a forward in 2019-20, while his role in Dallas is purely defensive in nature.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Headed for Lone Star State

    Pysyk inked a one-year, $750,000 contract with Dallas on Saturday.

    Pysyk split time at the end of the season as both a defenseman and a forward but should primarily play on the blue line with the Stars. With the Panthers, Pysyk notched nine goals and nine helpers in 58 appearances. If he does play defense, the Alberta native figures to supplant Joel Hanley in the lineup.

  • Panthers' Mark Pysyk: Generates helper Saturday

    Pysyk posted an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    The defenseman-turned-winger ended a five-game point drought with his assist. Pysyk has now matched his career high in points with 17, which he also achieved in his first year with the Panthers (2016-17). The 28-year-old has added 44 hits, 35 blocks and 56 shots in 51 games this year. Outside of positional flexibility, there's little reason for fantasy owners to consider Pysyk for their rosters.

  • Panthers' Mark Pysyk: Three points against Devils

    Pysyk scored a goal and added two assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    The Panthers' makeshift fourth line of Noel Acciardi between two converted blueliners in Pysyk and Mike Matheson came through with another huge effort, as the trio combined for three goals and eight points on the night. Pysyk recorded a hat trick Feb. 3 but he has no other points in his last eight games, and the 28-year-old is a risky fantasy option regardless of his role.
