Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Serving depth role

Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Snags helper Monday
Bryson registered an assist in Monday's 3-2 defeat to Edmonton.
Bryson finally ended his 26-game pointless streak that stretched back to Dec. 7 versus Columbus. Still, if the 25-year-old blueliner can pick up at least one more point this season, he'll match his career best of 10 set last season. GIven his lack of offensive upside, Bryson shouldn't be expected to offer more than low-end fantasy value moving forward.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Provides even-strength apple
Bryson supplied an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Islanders.
Bryson's helper took place at even strength and ended up being clutch in this tightly contested matchup. Nonetheless, his power-play role has shrunk precipitously as the season comes to a close, which is a bit of a letdown considering seven of his 10 points this season have been tallied on the man advantage....

Bryson produced a power-play assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.
Bryson set up a Kyle Okposo tally in the first period, with the former earning his first point in his last nine outings. The 24-year-old Bryson missed time with an upper-body injury and also had a stint in the COVID-19 protocols in that span. The defenseman is up to eight helpers, 20 shots on net, 26 hits, 38 blocked shots and a minus-12 rating through 35 appearances.

Bryson (upper body) is still listed as day-to-day on the Sabres' injury report and won't be an option versus Dallas on Thursday.
While it's certainly good news to have Bryson in the day-to-day category, he is still going to be sidelined for his third straight game due to his upper-body issue. Considering the blueliner remains goalless in 32 games this year, he's unlikely to offer more than mid-range fantasy value even once cleared to play, though five of his seven helpers were scored with the man advantage....
