  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Lifted from IR

    Mittelstadt (upper body) was removed from injured reserve Thursday.

    As expected, Mittelstadt will be in Thursday's lineup against Florida for the first time since Oct. 14, the first game of the season. The 23-year-old tallied 23 points and 61 shots through 41 games last season.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Ready to rock

    Mittelstadt (upper body) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Mittelstadt has been limited to just one game this season due to an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old American, who picked up 10 goals and 22 points through 41 contests last campaign, is expected to return to a third-line role against Florida.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Could return during road trip

    Mittelstadt (upper body) will travel with the team for its upcoming two-game road trip and could play either Thursday or Saturday against the Panthers or Hurricanes, respectively, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Mittelstadt has been out of action since the season opener versus Montreal on Oct. 14 but appears to be trending in the right direction. Once given the all-clear, the 23-year-old Minnesota native should be in the mix for a top-six role, possibly even the top line, which would make him a top-half fantasy target.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Practices in non-contact jersey

    Mittelstadt (upper body) was on the ice for Wednesday's game-day skate in a non-contact sweater, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Mittelstadt has been out of action since the season opener versus the Canadiens back on Oct. 14, but he at least appears to be trending in the right direction. Once the 23-year-old center is cleared to play, he could challenge for the first-line center role, though Tage Thompson has already matched his career-high eight goals in just 18 games.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: No timeline for return

    Mittelstadt (upper body) remains without a definite timetable for his return to action, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Mittelstadt can be considered out indefinitely with his upper-body injury. The 22-year-old forward has gone scoreless through one game this campaign.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Won't join team for road trip

    Mittelstadt (upper body) won't join the Sabres for their upcoming four-game road trip, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Mittelstadt will miss Buffalo's next four games at a minimum. Coach Don Granato is hoping to get the 22-year-old pivot back in the mix shortly after the Sabres return to Buffalo for a Nov. 6 matchup with Detroit, but Mittelstadt could miss that contest as well. The 2017 first-round pick has gone scoreless through one game this campaign.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Shifts to injured reserve

    Mittelstadt (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Mittelstadt is about a week into his absence with an injury that head coach Don Granato said would cost the center at least two weeks. This is just a procedural move for the 22-year-old, who should see top-six minutes once he's healthy.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Will miss a couple weeks

    Head coach Don Granato said Mittelstadt (upper body) will be out for at least a couple weeks.

    Mittelstadt suffered the injury in the second period of Thursday's game against Montreal. More updates on his recovery from the upper-body injury and a more specific return timeframe figure to become available soon.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Exits with injury

    Mittelstadt (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Canadiens.

    Mittelstadt was hurt in the second period and made a brief return to the ice before being ruled out in the intermission. The 22-year-old had the first chance to fill in as the No. 1 center this year with Jack Eichel (neck) unavailable, but it's unclear if Mittelstadt will miss any time. The Sabres' next game is Saturday versus the Coyotes.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Secures three-year deal

    Mittelstadt penned a three-year, $7.5 million contract with Buffalo on Thursday.

    Mittelstadt bounced back from a disappointing 2019-20 campaign with 10 goals and 12 helpers in 41 games last year. The 21-year-old center logged a career-high 15:53 of ice time and should continue to play a top-six role heading into the upcoming season. With a full 82-game campaign, Mittelstadt could be in line to set new personal bests in goals and assists in 2021-22 and challenge for the 40-50 point range.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Contributes assist Thursday

    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.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Two helpers in loss to Bruins

    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.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Riding four-game point streak

    Mittelstadt scored a goal on three shots Thursday in a 5-2 loss to Boston.

    Mittelstadt got the Bruins on the board with 5:51 left in the opening period, jumping on a juicy rebound in front with nothing but net to shoot at. The goal, Mittelstadt's 10th of the year, extended his point streak to four games, matching his longest of the season.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Mixed results Sunday

    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.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Lights lamp shorthanded

    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.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Stretches point streak to four

    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.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Lights lamp in shootout win

    Mittelstadt scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Rangers.

    Mittelstadt led a 2-on-1 with Taylor Hall in the first period and sniped a shot past Igor Shesterkin to the blocker side, tying the game with 6:59 left in the frame. The goal gave Mittelstadt a three-game point streak, and he's scored in two of those three after tallying just once in his first 19 contests.

  • Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Pockets first goal in over a month

    Mittelstadt scored a goal on two shots Wednesday in a 6-1 win over the Flyers.

    Mittelstadt beat Brian Elliott five-hole from the bottom of the right circle to give the Sabres a 4-1 lead late in the second period, chasing Elliott to the bench in the process. It was just the second goal of the year for Mittelstadt, who last lit the lamp way back on Feb. 25. The 22-year-old, a first-round pick in 2017, has just six points and is minus-13 in 20 games this season.
