  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Breaks 10-game goalless streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/18) Okposo scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, in a 7-4 victory over the Predators on Saturday.

    Those were his only goals of March, as Okposo went scoreless over the last 10 games. That about sums up Okposo's second season with the Sabres -- long stretches of nothing and then sudden bursts of value. Okposo has scored 13 goals, which is his fewest since the lockout season, and he owns a career-worst minus-32 rating, not at all what owners were expecting before the season.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Nominated for Masterton

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/18) Okposo was named the Sabres' nominee for the Masterton Trophy this season.

    Awarded to the player who shows the most dedication, perseverance and sportsmanship to hockey, Okposo was nominated based on his triumphant return from a scary situation last year when he was hospitalized due to allergies from medication. It's been another trying season for Okposo, who has scored just 11 goals in 70 games and has a career-worst minus-31 rating. However, he continues to be a valued veteran in the lineup and he's expected to return to the Sabres next season. He has five years remaining on his seven-year deal.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: In lineup Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/18) Okposo (concussion) will return to action versus the Predators on Monday.

    Okposo returns after a three-game absence due to his concussion. The winger needs just two point to register a fifth consecutive 40-plus point campaign. While some formats won't factor it in, the 29-year-old's career-worst plus/minus rating (minus-29) will be a concern to many fantasy owners. Okposo appears to be headed toward a bottom-six role versus Nashville -- at least to start the game -- but could see his role change depending on how his conditioning holds up.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: May return Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/18) Okposo (concussion) could return for Monday's game against the Predators.

    Okposo has missed three games with this head injury, and he has scored 11 goals and 38 points in the previous 65 outings. The veteran winger excels on the power play too, posting four goals and 18 points while averaging 3:18 of ice time with the man advantage. If he's able to return Monday, Okposo will be a hot commodity in the fantasy realm and should be considered a solid mid-tier asset in most settings.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Still out Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/18) Okposo (concussion) will not play in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks.

    Okposo returned to practice Friday, but it appears he will require a couple more practice sessions before returning to the lineup. His next opportunity to play arrives Tuesday against the Predators, and it wouldn't be surprising if he's ready to go for the matchup. However, the Sabres have little incentive to rush the winger back to a club owning the worst record in the league.
