  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Inks two-year deal

    Bryson signed a two-year, $1.85 million AAV extension with Buffalo on Sunday.

    Bryson averaged 18:21 of ice time with 10 points in 73 games last season. The 24-year-old will likely skate in a bottom-four role with Buffalo again next season. He's tallied 19 points in 111 career NHL games after he was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

  • 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.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Slides power-play helper

    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. He's mostly a power-play specialist on offense, and fantasy managers can likely find higher-scoring blueliners on the waiver wire.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Ready to rock

    Bryson (upper body) will play Saturday against the Flyers.

    Bryson will return to a third-pairing role and a spot on the Sabres' second power-play unit following his three-game absence. He's tallied seven helpers through 32 contests this campaign.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Possibly returning Saturday

    Bryson (upper body) was skating at Friday's practice, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Bryson may return for Saturday's game against Ottawa. The 24-year-old remains a game-time decision ahead of Saturday's contest. He has averaged 19:36 of ice time -- 1:19 during the power play -- and distributed seven assists over 32 appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Remains out Thursday

    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.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Still out Tuesday

    Bryson (upper body) will not be available Tuesday against Ottawa.

    Bryson will miss a second consecutive game Tuesday and it's still unclear how severe his injury is. Mattias Samuelsson should continue filling in during his absence.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Not playing Monday

    Bryson (upper body) was ruled out for Monday's contest against Detroit on Sunday.

    Bryson has averaged 19:36 of ice time -- 1:19 during the power play -- and has tallied seven assists over 32 games this season. The severity of his upper-body injury is unclear, so optimistically he is questionable for Tuesday's contest versus Ottawa. A clearer recovery timeline will be established as the details of his injury are disclosed.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Records power-play helper

    Bryson notched a power-play assist in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Bryson set up Zemgus Girgensons for a goal late in the second period. The 24-year-old Bryson has emerged as a bit of a power-play specialist -- five of his six points, all assists, have come with the man advantage. He's added 12 shots on net, 28 blocked shots, 17 hits and a minus-4 rating in 23 appearances.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Contributes power-play assist

    Bryson notched a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Kraken.

    Bryson has quietly been effective this season with five assists (four on the power play) through 10 contests. He's not generating many chances on his own with just four shots on net. The Ontario native has added a plus-2 rating, eight hits and nine blocked shots, but he could be worth a look in deeper formats as long as he plays with the man advantage.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Generates assist in loss

    Bryson managed an assist in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
