Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Notches pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo registered two assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Okposo had the secondary assist on Rasmus Dahlin's go-ahead tally in the second period and fed Zemgus Girgensons for an empty-netter in the third. Four of Okposo's 12 points this season have come in the last four games. He's added 50 shots, 33 hits and 26 PIM through 37 contests.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Ends point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo snapped his eight-game point drought during Saturday's loss to Vancouver.

Okposo had his shot deflected in by Zemgus Girgensons, getting Okposo on the scoresheet for the first time since Dec. 17. He has just four goals and five assists through 34 contests. He's currently on the Sabres' top power-play unit, so he should see an slight uptick in value for as long as he remains there.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Expected to miss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (illness) will not suit up for Monday's game in Ottawa.

Okposo has played through an illness for the last few games but, with the holiday break coming, the Sabres decided to hold him out of Monday's game. The veteran winger has eight points in 27 games and should be good to go for Friday's tilt against the Bruins.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Tallies goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo scored his fourth goal of the year during Tuesday's loss to Toronto.

Okposo's goal helped the Sabres almost mount a third period comeback. He has three goals in six contests since returning from a concussion. Playing on the fourth line, don't expect him to maintain that scoring pace.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Goals in back-to-back-games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo scored a goal on his lone shot and contributed three hits in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win versus the Oilers.

Okposo has scored in each of his first two games since returning from a concussion that forced him to miss 10 games. The 31-year-old has just three goals and seven points in 21 games this season. His days as a meaningful fantasy contributor are behind him.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Scores in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo lit the lamp in Saturday's loss to Vancouver.

Okposo was playing in his first game back since missing 10 contests with a concussion. He has just a pair of goals and four assists through 20 games. His fantasy value is at an all-time low. Don't expect him to eclipse the 29-point total he set last year.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo will return to the lineup Saturday against the Canucks.

Okposo, 31, suffered a concussion Nov. 16 that caused him to miss 10 games. He's been given the green light to return and will do so in Vancouver, expected to skate on Buffalo's fourth line. The veteran has five points in 19 games this season.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Will join team on trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (concussion) will travel with the Sabres for their upcoming three-game road trip, but coach Ralph Krueger isn't sure if he'll play in any of those contests, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Given his history of concussions, the Sabres will undoubtedly be extremely cautious with Okposo, but it's still encouraging that he's been cleared to travel with the team. The 31-year-old winger returned to practice Monday, so he's definitely making progress in his recovery, but there's still no timetable for his return to the lineup.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Skates during Monday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (concussion) skated with the team during Monday's practice, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Okposo has been out since Nov. 16 with a concussion and was initially ruled out indefinitely, with some fearing this could be the end of the line for the veteran winger. It's a positive sign that Okposo has made his next step in recovery, but he's likely still a week or two out from returning to game action.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Faces potential long-term absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Okposo was placed on injured reserve after exiting this past Saturday's win over the Senators, and it has been revealed that he's dealing with a serious issue. Tage Thompson filled into Okposo's place on the fourth line Sunday against the Blackhawks, but now he's out 3-to-5 weeks with his own upper-body injury. Thus, the Sabres will need to recall another player from AHL Rochester to fill in for Okposo, who unfortunately already has a nasty past with concussions.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 16, per the NHL's official media site.

Okposo exited Saturday's 4-2 win over the Senators with a mystery condition, and his move to IR means the 31-year-old isn't eligible to play until Nov. 24 against the Panthers. The Sabres may need to call up a forward from AHL Rochester if Johan Larsson (upper body) can't play Sunday against the Blackhawks.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Knocked out of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo left Saturday night's game against the Senators with an undisclosed injury and will not return, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Okposo was on the ice for 4:07 before an undisclosed injury forced him to exit Saturday's home contest. He faces a tough turnaround with a game Sunday, against Chicago on the road. If Okposo is unable to go, Buffalo might need to make a move considering the number of injuries it's already dealing with.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Sets up game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sharks.

Okposo gained control of the puck behind the Sharks' net and dished to Zemgus Girgensons, who gave the Sabres their fourth and final lead of the contest. Okposo has managed four points in nine games this season, adding 14 PIM, 11 hits and 11 shots on goal from a bottom-six position.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Doles out two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo had two assists and one shot on goal Friday in a 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers.

The Sabres scored twice in regulation and Okposo figured in on both, serving as the setup man on a pair of pretty odd-man rushes. They were the first helpers of the season for the 31-year-old, who entered the night with just one goal in his first four games. Okposo logged less than 14 minutes of ice time per game last season and that number is barely over 10 minutes per night this season. That level of playing time will limit the offensive numbers for Okposo, who had 14 goals and 29 points in 78 games a year ago.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Snaps point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo lit the lamp in Thursday's loss to Detroit.

The goal marks Okposo's first point in the past 10 games. The struggles got him demoted to the fourth line, further hindering his value. The winger has just 26 points in 73 contests this season. It's been a disappointing year after he posted 44 points in 2017-18. His best days may be behind him.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo set up a goal in Friday's overtime win over Pittsburgh.

The assist marks Okposo's first point since returning from a concussion Feb. 25. It's certainly encouraging to see him contributing, considering his concussion history could have forced him to take a slower recovery. He has taken a step back, though, sitting at 23 points in 60 games after compiling 44 points in 76 contests last season.

Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Will play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (concussion) will return to Buffalo's lineup Monday versus the Maple Leafs, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site report.

Okposo missed four games with a concussion, but luckily the 30-year-old -- with a history of concussions -- feels good enough to return against Toronto. This news follows Okposo's inclusion in the team's projected lineup earlier Monday, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The veteran winger has 22 points in 57 games this season.

February 25, 2019 11:52 AM
Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (concussion) is tentatively in Buffalo's lineup against the Maple Leafs on Monday based on the projected lines, Lance Lysowski of TBN Sports reports.

Technically, Okposo is still on injured reserve at the moment, but if this report is true, that will change before game time. The 30-year-old forward has missed four games with this concussion issue. While he isn't the scorer he used to be, Okposo still has 10 goals and 22 points in 57 games, including seven points with the extra man.

February 22, 2019 11:52 PM
Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres transferred Okposo (concussion) to injured reserve Friday.

This is a procedural move designed to open up a roster spot for the team's recalls of Danny O'Regan and Scott Wilson. The winger will be eligible to return whenever he is deemed healthy, though there's currently no timeline for that.

February 21, 2019 11:08 AM
Sabres' Kyle Okposo: No timeline on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okposo (concussion) does not have an estimated return date, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

This marks Okposo's third concussion in as many seasons, so he's being as cautious as possible. He's been in constant contact with doctors on how to exercise and what the next steps should be. Concussions aren't easy to gauge, especially with a player that has a history with them, so don't expect him back in the lineup anytime soon.
