Sgarbossa signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Thursday.
Sgarbossa spent the majority of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, picking up 10 points through 14 games, but he also drew into five games with the Capitals, notching two helpers over that span. The 28-year-old forward will likely continue to spend most of his time with AHL Hershey for the duration of his two-year extension.
Sgarbossa was reassigned from Washington's taxi squad to AHL Hershey on Monday.
He was replaced on the taxi squad by Philippe Maillet. Sgarbossa has two assists in five games with the Capitals this season and 10 points in 13 AHL appearances.
Sgarbossa was promoted from AHL Hershey to the taxi squad Tuesday.
Sgarbossa has contributed two assists in five games with the Capitals during the pandemic-shortened season. With a logjam of centers ahead of him on the depth chart, the 28-year-old is expected to serve as a reserve option and therefore remains largely irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
Sgarbossa was sent to AHL Hershey on Wednesday.
Sgarbossa has drawn into five games with the Capitals this season, picking up two helpers over that span. He'll likely continue to shuffle between levels throughout the year.
The Capitals reassigned Sgarbossa to the taxi squad Sunday.
The 28-year-old has seen action in the past five games while filling in for injured forwards, collecting two helpers over that span. To replace Sgarbossa, the team recalled Philippe Maillet ahead of Sunday's game against the Flyers, and he's expected to make his NHL debut. As more forwards return to action Sgarbossa is expected to spend most of his time between the taxi squad and minors this season.
Sgarbossa tallied an assist during Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.
Sgarbossa has two helpers in five games since being called upon to help fill the void at center in Washington with Evgeny Kunzetsov (COVID-19 protocols) and Lars Eller (upper body) on the shelf. The 28-year-old will likely head back to the taxi squad or AHL Hershey once Washington is fully healthy, so he isn't much of a fantasy consideration.
Sgarbossa tallied an assist and won three of seven faceoffs during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.
Sgarbossa has acquitted himself well on the fourth line with Daniel Carr and Daniel Sprong, but is likely headed out of the lineup once Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocols) and Lars Eller (upper body) return to action.
Sgarbossa was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Sgarbossa could make his season debut in Tuesday's game versus the Islanders. The 28-year-old played just two games with the big club last year. Through 50 career NHL games, Sgarbossa has posted 10 points and 23 PIM.
Sgarbossa was placed on the taxi squad Monday, according to TSN's transactions list.
Sgarbossa was waived earlier this month and will likely spend most of the season with AHL Hershey or on Washington's taxi squad. He was scoreless in two games with Washington last year in his first NHL action since the 2016-17 season.
Sgarbossa was placed on waivers Monday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Sgarbossa is in line for a heavy workload with AHL Hershey should he clear waivers after posting 13 goals and 40 points in 39 games with the Bears during the 2019-20 season.
The Capitals reassigned Sgarbossa to AHL Hershey on Sunday.
Sgarbossa was called up for the injured Nicklas Backstrom (upper body), and played two games, registering no points while averaging 8:07 of ice time. His demotion is a good sign that Backstrom is nearing a return to the ice. Sgarbossa will pivot to the AHL, where he has 14 points in 17 games thus far.
Washington recalled Sgarbossa from AHL Hershey on Wednesday.
Nicklas Backstrom won't play Wednesday against the Rangers due to an upper-body injury, so Sgarbossa will likely draw into the lineup immediately and fill a bottom-six role against New York. The 27-year-old pivot has racked up 14 points in 17 AHL games this campaign.
Sgarbossa was waived by the Capitals for the purpose of reassignment Monday.
Sgarbossa hasn't played in the NHL since suiting up 29 games for the Panthers during the 2016-17 season. He had his best minor-league output last year for AHL Hershey, racking up 30 goals and 65 points over 75 games, and he added a valuable physical touch with 91 PIM. The 27-year-old will return to Hershey if he clears waivers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sgarbossa (undisclosed) is projected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's game against the Blue Jackets, NHL.com 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.
