Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Nets two-year, two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Capitals signed Sgarbossa to a two-year, two-way deal Saturday that will earn him $700,000 at the NHL level and $407,500 at the AHL level.

Sgarbossa last appeared in the NHL during the 2016-17 season, but he lit up the AHL last year to the tune of 65 points (30 goals, 35 assists) over 75 games. The winger will likely be given a shot in training camp to open the season with the Capitals.

Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Gets one-year deal from Capitals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Capitals on Sunday.

Sgarbossa tallied 16 goals and 24 assists in 68 games with AHL-Manitoba in 2017-18. The 25-year-old is expected to spend the balance of the season in the minors, but could be called up to the big leagues in the event of an injury.

Jets' Michael Sgarbossa: Healthy entering 2017-18 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (lower body) cleared his physical heading into training camp.

After splitting time between the NHL and AHL last season, a healthy Sgarbossa will be hoping to make the 23-man roster out of the gate with his new club. In 48 career games spread over four seasons, the center has tallied two goals and eight helpers. At best, the 25-year-old figures to offer limited fantasy value as a bottom-six winger for the Jets.

Jets' Michael Sgarbossa: Heading back to Great White North
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (lower body) signed a one-year contract with Winnipeg on Saturday worth $650,000.

Sgarbossa -- a native of Ontario -- will head back north of the border after splitting time last season between Anaheim and Florida. In his 38 contests last year, the winger tallied nine points, 33 shots on goal and 39 hits. The 24-year-old is unlikely to be in the game-day lineup on a consistent basis, which limits his fantasy value.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Not available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (lower body) will sit out Sunday's regular-season finale in Washington, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

With that, Sgarbossa's season comes to a close. The 24-year-old posted new career highs across the board, but that still puts his point total at just 10. He hasn't showed signs of being a serious scoring threat at this point in his career, so a breakout campaign next season shouldn't be expected.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Leaves Saturday's game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was forced out of Saturday's game against the Sabres due to a lower-body injury and he will not return.

Sgarbossa works on the checking line and isn't a major fantasy contributor when healthy. If Sgarbossa cannot play in the team's regular-season finale in Washington, perhaps Jussi Jokinen draws into the lineup in his stead.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Likely to view next game from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (undisclosed) is projected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's game against the Blue Jackets, reports.

The Ontario native has missed the last three games and five of the last six. His limited role even when healthy makes him a non-factor in the fantasy realm.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Out with injury Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (undisclosed) is a scratch for Friday's game against the Wild.

Sgarbossa will miss his first game after getting knocked out of Tuesday's contest. There are still several unknowns concerning the 24-year-old's injury, including when he may be able to return, so expect an update on his status when that appears to be closer.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Leaves game due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game against the Rangers and was unable to return, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.

Sgarbossa was crushed by Chris Kreider of the Rangers on a clean hit and struggled to skate back to the bench. He immediately went to the room for evaluation and never returned, limiting him to 7:16 of ice time and 13 shifts. If Sgarbossa is forced to miss time, Shawn Thornton will likely draw back in.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Just three points this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa has one assist in 12 games since being traded from Anaheim.

The bottom-six center has played in 12 straight games with the Cats, skating to an average of 13:36 of ice time -- including 1:22 with the man advantage -- during that span, but has managed just a lone goal. That tally was his first as an NHLer, as he's tasted action with Colorado and Anaheim since 2012-13 but never played more than six games in a season. Nonetheless, Sgarbossa isn't exactly breaking out in his increased role in South Florida, so there's not much to see here from a fantasy standpoint.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Brought up to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was summoned to the Panthers from AHL Springfield on Thursday.

The undersized winger -- Sgarbossa's listed at 5-foot-10 and 171 pounds -- has not made an appearance with the parent club since Florida swung a Nov. 16 trade for him that included Logan Shaw moving to Anaheim. Sgarbossa has shown well with Springfield this season, producing four goals and eight assists in 14 games, but there's not much to get excited about here until he pins down a more substantial role at hockey's highest level.

Panthers' Michael Sgarbossa: Traded to Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks traded Sgarbossa to the Panthers in exchange for Logan Shaw on Wednesday.

Sgarbossa tallied two assists in nine games while averaging just 9:28 of ice time with the Ducks this season, while Shaw notched six points (four goals, two assists) in 13 games with Florida's AHL affiliate, so this move was simply a case of two teams hoping two players might perform better in a fresh setting. Sgarbossa will report to AHL Springfield for his first action with his new organization, but he could be called up to the big club before long.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Promoted to big club Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was recalled by the Ducks on Wednesday.

Anaheim recalled Sgarbossa to add some depth up front for the team's upcoming three-game road trip, as the Ducks only had 12 healthy forwards on the roster prior to his promotion. The 24-year-old winger has tallied two assists in six games with the Ducks this season, and will likely be returned to the minors once the team's road trip is over.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Sent back to AHL on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was sent down to AHL San Diego on Sunday.

Sgarbossa fared well in his most recent stint with the Ducks, logging an assist and five shots on goal over a pair of contests. He was reassigned along with Ondrej Kase to make room for Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Ritchie, who both returned Sunday from lower-body injuries.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Promoted to parent club Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was called up from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.

Sgarbossa has drawn into four games this season, pitching in an assist and averaging 9:53 of ice time. He's a nice insurance option for the Ducks, but he'll be hard-pressed to do much with the light workload.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was demoted to AHL San Diego on Tuesday.

Rickard Rakell (abdomen) appears ready to return to game action for the first time this season, so Sgarbossa was the roster casualty. Still, Sgarbossa will likely remain on the short list for call-ups this year if the Ducks find themselves in need of a forward due to injury. During the 2015-16 campaign, the 24-year-old put up 44 points in 62 minor league games, giving him some appeal in deeper dynasty formats.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Promoted to parent club Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa was called up from AHL San Diego on Saturday.

Sgarbossa failed to make the Opening Night roster and was subsequently waived by the Ducks, though he went unclaimed and remained in the system with the Gulls. He's a power forward who lacks experience at the NHL level, so you can safely pass over him in fantasy leagues.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Assigned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa cleared waivers and was assigned to the San Diego Gulls of the AHL.

Sgarbossa failed to make the Ducks' final roster after he couldn't beat out Chris Wagner for the final center spot. He will still remain in the team's system, however, by remaining on their San Diego affiliate.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Put on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks placed Sgarbossa on waivers Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Sgarbossa stood an outside shot at making the Ducks' roster this season following Nate Thompson's ruptured Achilles but couldn't beat out Chris Wagner (expected to serve as fourth line center) for the spot. Assuming he makes it through waivers unclaimed, he should wind up with the team's AHL San Diego affiliate.

Ducks' Michael Sgarbossa: Inks one-year, two-way extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sgarbossa signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Ducks on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. The deal is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $75,000 in the AHL.

Sgarbossa went undrafted and has just 10 NHL games under his belt. Since the two-way stipulation of his contract has been carried over from his previous signing, the Ducks can continue moving him between the minors and NHL as a depth option. Last season, the 23-year-old found twine 17 times to complement 27 helpers in 62 games for AHL San Diego. He also made a positive impression in the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs, averaging a point per game (one goal, four assists).
