  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: In midst of lengthy scoring drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/19) Girgensons hasn't scored a goal in 32 consecutive games.

    Girgensons is struggling to score, but he has at least collected seven assists during that 32-game stretch. He's played in 60 contests for the Sabres, meaning his goal drought has taken up more than half his season. He's stuck on Buffalo's fourth line, so don't expect him to score often even when he does end the drought.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Grabs helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/19) Girgensons notched an assist against the Islanders on Tuesday.

    Girgensons ended a seven-game pointless streak with his tally, but remains stuck in a 21-game goal drought. Considering he has topped the 10-goal mark just once in his career, the Latvian should be expected to go through long stretches without finding the back of the net. Looking ahead, the 24-year-old's ceiling is likely in the 20-point range, giving him low-end fantasy value.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Pointless Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/19) Girgensons was held without a point in his first game back from injury versus New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Girgensons logged 14:41 of ice time, in which he recorded one shot, one block and a plus-1 rating. The center was back in the lineup following a four-game stint on the sidelines. Considering he had just one assist in his previous seven contests before getting hurt, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on the Latvian to break out offensively.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/19) Girgensons will play Tuesday night against the Devils after missing the last four games with an upper-body injury, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    With eight points in 35 games and a role on the fourth line, we don't envision too many fantasy owners doing cartwheels across their living rooms over news of the Latvian's return. However, with Jack Eichel (upper body) already ruled out and Sam Reinhart (illness) a question mark, the Buffalo forward ranks will benefit from the boost Girgensons provides. He's been a key to the team's improvement this season in several non-scoring ways, plus he's a good penalty killer. The team lost three of the four games Girgensons missed due to the upper-body injury.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Game-time decision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/19) Girgensons' (upper body) status for Tuesday's clash with New Jersey will be determined closer to puck drop.

    Girgensons has missed the Sabres' previous four outings due to his upper-body issue. The center was bogged down in a seven-game goal drought prior to getting hurt. Despite his recent slump, the Latvian managed eight points in 35 appearances and could crack the 20-point threshold for the first time since 2014-15. In order to play, the team will need to activate Girgensons off injured reserve and make a corresponding roster move, likely sending C.J. Smith back to the minors.
