  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Will play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/17) Okposo (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against Chicago on Friday, despite sitting out the morning skate, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Okposo enters Friday's tilt bogged down in a five-game pointless streak during which he has tallied just 10 shots on goal, two PIM and a minus-5 rating. With a mere 11 points through the first 26 games, Okposo may struggle to reach the 40-point mark for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season when he was with the Islanders. The winger's chances of ending his drought took a hit when Corey Crawford (undisclosed) was announced as the starting netminder for the Blackhawks.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Snags two points in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/17) Okposo potted a goal and picked up a helper in Friday's 3-1 win over Edmonton.

    Okposo finally makes his way to double-digit points on the season with this two-point performance. However, after a painfully slow start to the year, the 29-year-old has seven points over his last eight games. Okposo might be turning the corner and could continue scoring at a regular rate for the remainder of the campaign.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Plays 20 minutes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Okposo played 20:24 against Montreal on Saturday, the most since returning from illness.

    Okposo missed two games due to his ailment in mid-October and saw his ice time range from 9:23 to 18:56 since returning, but logged 20:24 and registered three shots on net against the Habs. He's scored five points in 15 games this season, which is below his usual pace, but the entire team is struggling to score, with just six goals in its past four games. The good news is that Okposo is a fixture on Ryan O'Reilly's line, which means he will continue to get good scoring opportunities at even strength and on the power play. Okposo can be valuable in fantasy leagues that count peripherals, but his current scoring pace and minus-9 rating make him unpalatable in most settings.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Doubles season point total in one game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/3/17) Okposo fashioned a goal, an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in a 5-4 road win over the Coyotes on Thursday.

    The American winger opened the scoring for the Sabres, with his early production proving clutch as the 'Yotes netted three unanswered goals for a comeback bid that barely fell short. Still, Okposo's four points (one goal, three assists) through 11 games qualifies as a disappointment and that trend is made worse by his tallying just a single man-advantage point so far. Coach Phil Housley has given the 29-year-old 16:43 of average ice time, which is more than two minutes less per contest than he garnered last year, so it's no surprise to see Okposo's production slip in response to reduced playing time.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Returning to action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Okposo (illness) will be back in the lineup for Tuesday night's showdown in Las Vegas, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Okposo was forced to miss two games as a result of his ailment, but he is apparently healthy and ready to retake his regular offensive role both on the power play and at regular strength. The Minnesota native has been shooting the puck plenty, racking up 11 shots on goal in his first four contests, but has yet to record a point.
