  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Switches spots with Houser

    Dell was was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Friday.

    Michael Houser was recalled in a corresponding move. With Buffalo's season finale coming up later in the day, Dell will finish his NHL campaign with a 1-8-1 record, 4.03 GAA and .893 save percentage.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Called up Thursday

    Dell was recalled from AHL Rochester on Thursday.

    Dell has managed just one win in 12 appearances with the big club this season. The Sabres have two games remaining (Thursday in Boston, Friday versus Chicago), so it wouldn't be surprising to see Dell start Friday with Dustin Tokarski getting the nod Thursday.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Returns to minors

    Dell was reassigned to AHL Rochester after Saturday's game versus the Islanders.

    Dell was the backup for that contest and didn't see any playing time. Craig Anderson (undisclosed) isn't expected to be out for long, but Dell could be back with the big club again Thursday if the team needs goaltending depth.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Set to back up

    Dell has been promoted from AHL Rochester and will back up Dustin Tokarski on Saturday against the Islanders, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Dell may remain with the big club for the final three games of the season. He's gone 1-8-1 while posting a 4.04 GAA and an .893 save percentage through 12 top-level appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Dell was sent to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

    Craig Anderson and Dustin Tokarski are now both healthy, so the Sabres are no longer in need of Dell's services in goal. Dell will likely remain in the minors as long as Anderson and Tokarski are both available.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Suspension served

    Dell has served his three-game suspension.

    Dell cleared waivers but remained on the active roster in order to serve out his suspension. Coming out of the All-Star break, the netminder will likely be headed for the minors now that both Craig Anderson and Dustin Tokarski are healthy and available.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Lands on waivers

    Dell (suspension) was placed on waivers Saturday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Dell has posted a 1-8-1 record with a 4.03 GAA and an .893 save percentage over 12 games this season. The 32-year-old was recently mandated to serve a three-game suspension for interfering with Ottawa's Drake Batherson in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to the Senators. Dell will need to be added back to the active roster before he'll be able to start serving his suspension.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Receives three-game suspension

    Dell was suspended three games for interference against the Senators' Drake Batherson (ankle) in Tuesday's game.

    Considering Batherson is expected to miss a significant portion of time, it's not surprising to see Dell receive a suspension. It's a tough loss for the Sabres, who remain thin in goal, so they may need to call up a netminder from AHL Rochester to back up Michael Houser going forward. Dell will miss games Saturday in Arizona, Sunday in Colorado and Tuesday in Vegas, and the Sabres won't be back in action until Feb. 10 against the Blue Jackets due to the All-Star break.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Set for hearing with league

    Dell will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for interference on the Senators' Drake Batherson (ankle).

    Dell was penalized on the play but is now facing the prospect of at least a one-game suspension, if not longer. The Sabres can ill afford to lose the 32-year-old netminder considering they have four other goalies currently dealing with injuries, which could leave the club with just Michael Houser as an option against Arizona on Saturday.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Blitzed by Sens

    Dell allowed five goals on 47 shots in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to Ottawa.

    The Senators jumped out to a 3-0 first-period lead and added an insurance marker against Dell in each of the final two frames. This was a forgettable deja vu for Dell, who also gave up five goals on 47 shots to the Stars in his previous outing. He's allowed 17 goals en route to a 0-3-1 record in his last four starts, and Dell remains tough to trust in fantasy with the Sabres leaking chances in front of him.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: In goal Tuesday

    Dell will get the starting nod on the road against the Senators on Tuesday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Dell has just one win in 11 appearances this season, having posted a 1-7-1 record and 3.92 GAA. Still, with four other netminders dealing with significant injuries, including Opening Night starter Craig Anderson (upper body), Buffalo has few alternatives than to continue giving Dell starts.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Takes loss late on busy night

    Dell stopped 42 of 47 shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.

    Dell was sensational at even strength, stopping 39 of 40 shots, but Dallas got four pucks past him on the man advantage. Buffalo's offense got off to a hot start, and the Sabres actually led it 4-3 after two periods, but Dallas struck twice on the power play in the final eight minutes to hand Dell the tough-luck regulation loss. This game showed why Dell's tough to trust in fantasy, as even a strong effort on his part resulted in a tough outing in the box score.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Facing Dallas

    Dell will guard the home goal during Thursday's matchup with the Stars, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Dell was pretty solid in his last start Monday against Detroit, stopping 32 of 35 shots, but he ultimately suffered his seventh loss of the season due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. He'll try to snap his personal two-game losing streak in a home matchup with a slumping Stars squad that's lost three straight contests.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Fades late in OT loss

    Dell turned aside 32 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings.

    The 32-year-old netminder took a shutout and a 2-0 lead into the third period, but Dell then gave up two goals in just over three minutes midway through the final frame before Dylan Larkin snapped home the winner in OT. Dell has lost two straight starts since collecting his only win of the season so far, and he carries a rough 3.75 GAA and .892 save percentage through 10 appearances. With four other Buffalo goalies on the shelf however, the team is pretty much stuck with Dell in the crease for now.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Defending net Monday

    Dell will defend the blue paint at home against Detroit on Monday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Dell has posted a 1-6-0 record with a 3.89 GAA and an .889 save percentage over nine appearances this season. He picked up his first win of the year against Nashville on Thursday. The 32-year-old stopped 35 of 39 shots on net in Saturday's 4-0 loss to Detroit. The Red Wings have averaged 27.7 shots on goal and 2.33 goals per game over 18 road contests this season, ranking bottom 10 in both categories.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Zero help from teammates

    Dell made 35 saves in a 4-0 loss to Detroit on Saturday.

    This loss wasn't on Dell -- none of his teammates showed up to help. Even his teammate Robert Hagg told reporters post game, "[Dell] is the only guy who can feel good about himself tonight." Don't expect any fantasy miracles from Dell -- the Sabres are in the league's bottom-five teams and are headed for yet another lottery draft pick. One man cannot save this squad.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Starting versus Detroit

    Dell will protect the road goal Saturday versus the Red Wings, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Dell won his last start, stopping 29 of 30 shots versus the Predators. A plethora of injuries has affected the Sabres' goaltending group this year, so Dell figures to serve as a No. 1 option in the short term. He has a 3.87 GAA and an .887 save percentage in eight appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Solid in win

    Dell made 29 saves on 30 shots in a 4-1 win over the Predators on Thursday.

    Dell has not earned a starting gig this season, but he certainly made the case to remain in that role Thursday amid all the Sabres' goalie injuries and issues. The 32-year-old allowed just one goal, a power-play score from Matt Duchene in the second period, before locking in for the remainder of the game. Dell has a 4.52 GAA in eight appearances on the season.

  • Sabres' Aaron Dell: Defending blue paint Thursday

    Dell will guard the net in Nashville on Thursday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Dell has gone 0-5-0 with a 4.52 GAA and an .872 save percentage over seven appearances this season. The Predators have averaged 3.14 goals and 29.29 shots on goal in 2021-22. The Sabres have had their goalie depth ravaged by illness and injury, resulting in Dell, a call-up, being their best option to defend the cage. He will likely remain the number one option at goalie until Dustin Tokarski (not injury related) is ready to return.
