Sabres' Marco Scandella: Shut down early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (lower body) will miss the final three games of the regular season.

Making matters worse, the Sabres failed the make the playoffs, so Scandella turns his attention to an offseason recovery and getting in shape for the 2019-20 campaign. The left defenseman has one year and $4 million remaining on his contract before he can hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. Rookie phenom Rasmus Dahlin (41 points to date) has really cut into Scandella's fantasy prospects, and it's not likely to get any better with the aforementioned Swede rapidly grasping the nuances of NHL play. Scandella finishes with 13 points (six goals, seven assists) and a minus-13 rating through 63 games.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (lower body) will not be in Sunday's lineup against Columbus, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Scandella left Saturday's game against the Islanders after blocking a shot and is clearly feeling a lingering effect. With just 13 points in 63 games, his absence shouldn't affect too many fantasy owners. Jake McCabe is expected to replace him in the lineup.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Hurt blocking shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella didn't come out for the third period of Saturday's game against the Islanders, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio reports.

Scandella blocked a shot in the second period with his foot, which has apparently forced him out of the contest. With the Sabres going right back to work Sunday against Columbus, there's a good chance Scandella will have to sit out at least one additional contest.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Scores rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella buried a goal during Thursday's loss to Detroit.

It's not often Scandella gets credit for a goal, as he has just six this season and 38 through his 517-game career. The goal brings him up to 13 points in 62 games, a notable dip from the 22 points he totaled last year. Scandella won't provide much in terms of fantasy value aside from his 74 blocks.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Back to work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) will be active for Sunday's game against the Blues.

A no-frills defenseman rounding out his ninth NHL season, Scandella has produced only four goals and seven assists over 56 games. The rapid emergence of 2018 first overall pick Rasmus Dahlin has been detrimental to Scandella's fantasy prospects, as he's only averaging 17:43 of ice time after clearing 23 minutes per game in 2017-18.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Hurricanes.

Scandella's presence on the road trip seemed to suggest he had a chance to avoid missing time, but he will indeed skip out on at least one contest. He won't have to wait long for his next chance to draw in with the Sabres returning home to host the Blues on Sunday. Zach Bogosian (undisclosed) rejoins the action in his place.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Dealing with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Hurricanes.

Scandella made the trip to Carolina for Saturday's contest, so there's a chance he won't be forced to miss any time due to his upper-body issue. Another update on his status should surface prior to puck drop against the Hurricanes.

March 2, 2019 05:20 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (lower body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against Toronto, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Scandella's return will bolster the Sabres' depth at defense, but it will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only notched 10 points in 50 contests this campaign.

March 1, 2019 12:04 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Effectively ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (lower body) remains day-to-day ahead of Friday's game against the Penguins, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

This means Scandella has virtually no chance of suiting up against the Pens, though it doesn't seem like an injury that will keep on him on the shelf for much longer, either. Newcomer Brandon Montour -- a castoff from the Ducks -- has bolstered the blue-line corps for the Sabres, and that puts Scandella in position to return when he's 100 percent.

February 28, 2019 02:12 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Sidelined by lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Phil Housley clarified Sandella's injury as lower-body and he remains day-to-day heading into Friday's clash with the Penguins, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Fortunately, Scandella's latest injury isn't related to the upper-body injury that landed him on IR earlier in February. There's a chance the issue is related to one of the three blocked shots or two hits he delivered during Tuesday's contest, with the blueliner taking the ice for just 13:59 of action. Regardless, Scandella's status shouldn't have a large impact on fantasy leagues given his 10 points through 50 games this season.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Dealing with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella is considered day-to-day due to an undisclosed injury, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear if Scandella's latest problem is related to the upper-body issue that kept him out for four games in late February. If the Montreal native is ruled out against Pittsburgh on Friday, Matt Hunwick figures to slot into the Sabres' third pairing.

February 25, 2019 06:52 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Good to go in Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) is playing Monday versus the Maple Leafs.

Scandella will make his return following a four-game absence due to an upper-body injury. The Sabres' blueliner has four goals and 10 points in 48 games this season and will return to his usual spot on the right side of Buffalo's third defensive pairing.

February 19, 2019 04:28 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Scandella is considered week-to-week with an upper-body injury, so this move was expected. Another update on the 28-year-old blueliner's status should be released once he's cleared to return to practice with his teammates.

February 18, 2019 02:44 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella is week-to-week due an upper-body issue, the team announced Monday.

The news effectively rules Scandella out for the Sabres' next three outings. Fortunately for the Buffalo blue line, Casey Nelson (upper body) is back from his conditioning assignment and could return to the lineup soon. With just 10 points on the year, the 28-year-old Scandella's absence is unlikely to affect the majority of fantasy owners.

February 18, 2019 01:08 AM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Not on road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Devils, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Although he's not on the team's road trip at the moment, he may still join the Sabres later in the week. However, Casey Nelson (upper body) is nearing a return from injured reserve, so Scandella may be placed on IR to make room, which would put him out until at least Saturday.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Big day for blocked shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella blocked five shots and added two PIM in a 3-1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday.

Scandella is a defense-first blueliner, although the five blocks marks a single-game season high for him. His goal in a 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday gives him 10 points in 45 games. He doesn't usually produce big numbers in most categories, although his 11 shots in the last four games shows a slightly increased effort on offense.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Contributing more offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella has four points in his past 10 games.

Scandella isn't known for his offense, as evidenced by his nine points in 39 games. Nearly half his points have come in his last 10 contests, so don't expect him to be able to carry that level of production for an extended period of time, though at least he's earned a regular spot in the lineup even though the Sabres currently have eight healthy defensemen.

Sabres' Marco Scandella: Rare big game for crease clearer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Boston.

Scandella hadn't put up a point since Nov. 8, although to his defense he missed about three weeks to injury. It was a big night for the stay-at-home defender -- he's never put up more than 23 points in a season. Scandella's performance Saturday was the exception, not a new norm. Don't run out there to pick him up.

December 15, 2018 04:40 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Removed from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) was activated from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's road game against the Capitals, per the NHL's official media site.

Scandella has only managed five points through 23 games this season, as hyped rookie Rasmus Dahlin has cut into his production and stands as a big reason why the Quebec native's ice time has dropped from 23:19 last year to 18:43 through 23 games of the 2018-19 campaign.

December 14, 2018 02:00 PM
Sabres' Marco Scandella: Could return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandella (upper body) will be reevaluated Saturday and seems like a good bet to rejoin the lineup against the Capitals that same day, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

Scandella has missed eight consecutive contests due to his upper-body issue. Fortunately, it appears as though his return is imminent. An update on his status will likely surface following his evaluation Saturday.
