The 26-year-old forward, who logged seven goals and 13 points in 50 games last season (33 with Buffalo and 17 with Boston), is off the fantasy radar in most formats, but should be a bottom-six mainstay for the B's up front, as long as he's healthy....

Lazar clarified that he was dealing with an MCL sprain and bruised ACL but avoided tearing any ligaments and won't need surgery, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.
