  • Sabres' Johan Larsson: Handed two-game suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/18) Larsson has been suspended two games for cross-checking Florida's Vincent Trocheck during Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

    Larsson's cross check landed on Trocheck's face and could have easily injured the Panthers' pivot, so it's not surprising that the NHL decided additional discipline was warranted in this case. The Swedish forward, who's notched three goals and nine points in 51 games this campaign, will be eligible to return Thursday against the Islanders.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Goal drought continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Larsson has gone 33 straight games without finding the back of the net.

    Larsson's goal drought probably shouldn't come as too much of a surprise when you consider he has put up just 30 shots over that stretch -- less than one per game. While the Swede has been limited to a bottom-six role, his minutes remain decently high (13:33 per game), which indicates that the opportunities are there, but he simply isn't capitalizing. At this point, the 25-year-old almost certainly won't reach his 2015-16 mark of 10 goals again this season.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Records assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/17) Larsson notched an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to Minnesota.

    Late in the second period, Larsson made an alert outlet pass to Jake McCabe, who found Sam Reinhart in front of the net for a tip-in goal -- snapping a 10-game pointless streak for the 25-year-old. Despite earning consistent playing time on Buffalo's third line, Larsson hasn't made much of an impact in 2017-18 on the scoresheet, only recording four points in 22 games. The 25-year-old was derailed by injuries last year, so perhaps this could be the spark that helps him find the 2014-15 form that helped him notch 16 points in 39 games.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Notches first two points of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Larsson netted his first goal of the season and added a helper in Sunday's win over the Ducks.

    Larsson had a productive night all around, firing five shots on goal and dishing out three hits. The third-line center has a 10-goal season to his name, but Larsson sees limited minutes and doesn't offer much to fantasy goers. He was on his way to a career year in 2016-17 before suffering season-ending injuries, so there's potential for him to develop into a reliable depth scorer.

    Sabres' Johan Larsson: Heading for arbitration

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/5/17) Larsson (wrist) will file for salary arbitration, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

    Evidently, the Swede has turned down his qualifying offer after his last contract with the Sabres went for one year and $950,000. Of course, Larsson only played in 36 games this past season, with a wrist injury to blame, but providing 11 points over that span represented a career-high clip, so he can use that to try and justify a higher salary with an arbiter.
