Larsson inked a two-year, $2.8 million contract with Arizona on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
In seven NHL seasons, Larsson has never reached the 20-point mark and is unlikely to do so in Arizona. The 27-year-old center should slot into a bottom-six role and projects to offer low-end fantasy value at best.
With the Sabres being one of seven NHL teams that won't be part of the playoffs, Larsson has played his last game of 2019-20 and will soon become an unrestricted free agent, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Lysowski surmises that GM Jason Botterill will want to retain Larsson, as the forward won't be expensive and he's always capably filled a bottom-line, penalty-killing role with they Sabres. Quietly, he's one of the team's longest tenured players after being acquired from the Wild in 2013. He reached his career high in points this season with 18 as well as a plus-8 rating, but there's not much to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Larsson notched an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Jets.
Larsson notched a secondary helper on Rasmus Ristolainen's third-period goal, but it didn't spark a comeback for the Sabres, who lost their fourth straight contest. The 27-year-old Larsson now has a career-high 18 points this season, and he fits in well in a fourth-line role, posting a 50.7 Corsi For percentage this year.
Larsson (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Senators, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Originally deemed a game-time decision after taking a maintenance day Monday, Larsson is ready to center the fourth line. He's coming off a two-point outing against the Maple Leafs, but his fantasy dependability is low with him having just 15 points through 52 games.
Larsson, who took a maintenance day Monday, will take part in warmups ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa in order to determine if he can play, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Larsson continues to be a streaky player for the Sabres, as he's racked up three points in his last four games, which was preceded by a 19-game pointless streak. Assuming he plays, fantasy owners may want to try to strike while the iron is hot, especially given the matchup with a struggling Senators squad.
Larsson scored a goal and dished an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Larsson opened the scoring at 1:32 of the second period, and he later helped out on Kyle Okposo's tally in the third. The Swede is up to 15 points, 49 shots and 74 hits through 52 contests this season, just two points shy of his career high.
Larsson (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Thursday against Detroit, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Larsson missed Tuesday's loss to Colorado due to a lower-body injury, but whatever held him out of that contest clearly wasn't overly serious. The 27-year-old, who's picked up 12 points in 46 games this campaign, will return to a bottom-six role against the Red Wings.
Larsson (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche.
With Larsson day-to-day with a lower-body injury, the Sabres have recalled Rasmus Asplund to fill in against Colorado. The middle-six pivot will hope to heal up in time for Thursday's matchup with Detroit.
Larsson has been held off the scoresheet for 17 straight games.
Larsson had gone on quite the tear -- racking up eight points in five contests. That was 17 games ago, and he hasn't been able to find the scoresheet since. He has four goals and eight assists in 46 outings. Don't expect him to go on a hot streak anytime soon.
Larsson (undisclosed) is expected to be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Bruins, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Larsson has missed the last three games due to the undisclosed issue, but he will be a welcomed addition to the lineup, especially considering Jeff Skinner (upper body) is expected to be sidelined 3-to-4 weeks. Larsson is expected to man the middle on the second line alongside Sam Reinhart and Marcus Johansson on Sunday.
Larsson (undisclosed) will not take part in Friday's game against the Bruins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Larsson's absence Friday shouldn't have a large overall impact in the fantasy realm given his 12 points through the first 33 contests. Curtis Lazar will draw into the lineup in his place, while Larsson will focus on Sunday's rematch with the Bruins for his next chance to return.
Larsson (undisclosed) will be a game-time call versus Boston on Friday.
Larsson has missed Buffalo's prior two outings due to his undisclosed problem. If he isn't able to play Friday, the center would seem to be a near-lock to return for Sunday's reverse clash with the Bruins. Larsson's potential return would allow the Sabres to return to a more traditional 12 forward, six defensemen lineup.
Larsson (undisclosed) will miss the Sabres' next two contests.
Larsson's absence will test the Sabres' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up 12 points 33 games while skating in a middle-six role this campaign. The 28-year-old Swede will hope to heal up in time for next Friday's matchup with Boston.
Larsson (undisclosed) will not return to Thursday's game against the Flyers after leaving the ice in the second period.
Larsson doubled over after a hit, and while the specifics of the injury have not been disclosed, his status for the rest of the game has. Thursday is turning into a disaster for the Sabres, who started the game without captain Jack Eichel, ended up down 6-0 after two periods, and have now lost a couple of other players due to injury.
Larsson finished Tuesday's 5-2 win over St. Louis with a goal and an assist.
In his last five games, Larsson has posted two or more points three different times. Eight of his 12 points this season have come over that span. It's unlikely Larsson keeps up this rate of production, but his owners should enjoy it for the time being. Buffalo goes on the road to face the Islanders on Saturday and Larsson will be looking to keep things rolling. He was held without a point in the two teams' meeting earlier in the year.
Larsson scored a goal on his lone shot and was plus-2 with two hits in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.
Larsson had just four points through the first two months of the season, but something has clicked for him since the calendar turned to December. The 27-year-old has produced a goal and five assists in that stretch with a plus-5 rating. On the flip side, he's only mustered a grand total of three shots in this four-game run.
Larsson recorded two assists, adding a season-high seven hits and a plus-2 rating, in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Canucks.
The veteran center found himself on the second line at times with Marcus Johansson and Jeff Skinner, and Larsson responded with his second multi-point performance in the last three games. He has only two goals and nine points on the year, but six of those helpers have come in the last five games. If he can hang onto a top-six assignment, Larsson could become a viable fantasy play in deeper formats despite his lack of power-play time.
Larsson registered three assists, all in the opening period, in a 7-1 win over New Jersey on Monday.
Larsson figured in on Buffalo's second, third and fourth goals of the game as the Sabres erupted for a 5-0 first-period lead. It was just the second three-point performance of Larsson's career and his first since March 11, 2015. The 27-year-old has four points over his last three games after totaling three points in his first 22.
Larsson (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against Boston.
Larsson has missed Buffalo's last three games due to an upper-body injury, but he'll return to a bottom-six role against the Bruins, centering Zemgus Girgensons and Curtis Lazar on the Sabres' third line. The 27-year-old Swede has only totaled three points in 18 games this campaign, so he can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Larsson (upper body) will miss Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Larsson's continued absence, along with a bevy of other forwards, will likely force the Sabres into dressing seven defensemen against the Wild. Prior to getting hurt, Larsson managed a mere one point in his last nine appearances. Given his limited offensive upside, the Swede figures to remain a low-end fantasy option.
