  • Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Big night breaks long slumps

    Jokiharju scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-2 overtime win over Minnesota on Saturday.

    Jokiharju completed Buffalo's comeback with the overtime winner just 1:29 into the extra frame. His big multi-point performance snapped a 24-game scoreless drought and a 31-game goalless slump. He doesn't put up many points, but his plus-9 rating is second-best on the team. His stability helps the Sabres, but he is better off left on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.
