by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (lower body) was activated from injured reserve for Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Bruins' Curtis Lazar: Iffy for Tuesday night's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (lower body) is a game-time decision for Tuesday night's game against the Sabres, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

The report notes that Lazar is dealing with a soft-tissue injury. While the Bruins' recent trade acquisition has indicated that he's ready to play, GM Don Sweeney previously suggested that the bottom six forward might need a few days to get ready to join the team's lineup. Either way, when Lazar does make his debut for Boston, he's in line for fourth-line duty.

Bruins' Curtis Lazar: Not ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Sabres, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Per Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site, Lazar -- who was acquired from Buffalo on Sunday -- is expected to require a few days to regain his conditioning after missing time with a lower-body injury. Once he's deemed ready to join Boston's lineup, Lazar, who's able to play either center or wing, will provide the team with bottom six depth. The 26-year-old logged five goals and nine points in 33 games for the Sabres prior suffering his injury March 31.

Bruins' Curtis Lazar: Traded to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres traded Lazar (lower body) and Taylor Hall to the Bruins in exchange for Anders Bjork and a second-round pick Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Lazar has five goals and nine points in 33 games this season. He's missed the last six games with a lower-body issue, and it's unclear when he might be ready to return. Once healthy, he'll likely slot into Boston's bottom six.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

Lazar was already given a week-to-week designation, so this is simply a procedural move. The 26-year-old shouldn't be expected back before mid-April at the absolute earliest.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Given the length of his expected absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see Lazar surface on injured reserve in the coming days. The 26-year-old forward has only picked up nine points in 33 games this season, so most fantasy managers won't need to track his status.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Leaves with injury Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (undisclosed) suffered an injury and did not return to Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Flyers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Lazar scored a first-period goal before he suffered the injury. After the game, interim head coach Don Granato didn't provide an update on Lazar's status. His status for Thursday's game versus the Rangers is in doubt, although nothing official has been decided.

Lazar helped out on Brandon Montour's second-period tally. The 26-year-old Lazar has picked up assists in each of the last two games, following a seven-game point drought. He's at seven points, 21 shots on net, 45 hits and a minus-2 rating in 22 appearances overall.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Nets helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar generated an assist in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

The assist ended a seven-game point drought for Lazar. He started the season with three points in five games but has since scored three points in his following 18 appearances. His value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Returning to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (not injury related) has been added to the Sabres' active roster and will play Thursday against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of reports.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Skating Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (COVID-19 protocols) skated Tuesday as he works his way back to full fitness. However, the center remains on non-roster injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Lazar won't be an option versus the Islanders on Tuesday but could get back in the lineup during the team's upcoming four-game road trip. In 10 games this year, the 26-year-old Lazar has registered three goals on 11 shots, one assist and 25 hits while averaging 12:09 of ice time. Even once available, Lazar figures to remain in a bottom-six role and will offer mid-range fantasy value at best.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Added to protocols list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Saturday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Lazar is one of seven Sabres to have been placed on the league's virus protocols list within the past week. Buffalo's games have already been postponed through Monday, but at this point it's looking like Thursday's game versus Washington may be in jeopardy as well.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Tallies goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar notched a goal in Sunday's loss to New Jersey.

That marks Lazar's third goal and fourth point through 10 games. He's providing some secondary offense for the Sabres, along with some physicality in his 25 hits. He may have some value to managers in deeper leagues.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Rare two-goal game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar scored twice on two shots and added four hits in Monday's 6-1 win over Philadelphia.

Lazar opened the scoring late in the first period and gave the Sabres a 4-0 lead midway through the second frame. The goals were his first of the year and gave Lazar his first multi-goal game since February 2016, when he was a member of the Senators. The 25-year-old is already a third of the way to the career-high six goals he scored in each of his first two NHL seasons.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (undisclosed) will suit up for Thursday's clash with Washington, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Lazar managed just two points in his final 20 games of the season, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him offensively. The 25-year-old center figures to continue filling a bottom-six role for the Sabres and can likely be ignored in most fantasy contests.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Dealing with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar is considered day-to-day after suffering an undisclosed injury, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Lazar featured in 38 games for the team last year, registering five goals on 33 shots, five helpers and 70 hits. Once cleared to play, the 2013 first-round pick should be in the mix for a spot in the lineup in a bottom-six role but will no doubt face challenges from youngster Dylan Cozens.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Inks two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract extension with the Sabres on Thursday.

Lazar was a part time player for Buffalo in 2019-20, picking up five goals and 10 points in 38 regular-season games. The 25-year-old forward will likely continue to be a rotational player for the Sabres over the next two campaigns, so don't count on him developing into a dependable fantasy option.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Goal highlights effective night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar scored a goal on two shots and dished out three hits with five blocks in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Wednesday. He also won 10 of his 15 faceoffs (66.7 percent).

Lazar tipped a Jake McCabe shot past Colorado goalie Pavel Francouz, tying the game at 2-2 with just over five minutes left in the second period. The goal was Lazar's first since Jan. 14, ending a 14-game drought for the 25-year-old. Lazar has five goals and 10 points in 32 games this season. Now with his third team in seven seasons, the 2013 first-round pick of Ottawa has been unable to establish himself as anything more than a bottom-six role player at the NHL level.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Ready to roll Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (illness) will play in Thursday's game against the Red Wings.

Lazar was considered a question mark for the contest after sitting out Tuesday's tilt due to a bug, but the additional rest must have done the trick and he will retake his spot in the action. Lazar's limited ice time and absence from the power play curtail his fantasy upside, but the 25-year-old pivot has still collected eight points through 22 games and can serve as a lineup filler in some formats.

Sabres' Curtis Lazar: Out against Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lazar (illness) won't play Tuesday against Colorado.

The Sabres will be without Johan Larsson (lower body) and Lazar down the middle Tuesday, so they'll be forced to utilize 11 forwards and seven defensemen against the Avalanche. The 25-year-old pivot will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's game versus the Red Wings.
