  • Sabres' Seth Griffith: Sits out second straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/17) Griffith is expected to be a healthy scratch Tuesday against Pittsburgh, the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Griffith was expected to add some offense to the lineup and started off well with an assist in the season opener, but has since scored just two goals in 13 games. After playing 13:51 in the opener, including 3:11 on the power play, Griffith has been getting fourth-line minutes with very little power-play opportunities. Jordan Nolan and Nick Baptiste will both draw into the lineup instead. After making the roster of out training camp, Griffith is once again on the outside looking in as he continues to struggle to find a role in the NHL.

    Sabres' Seth Griffith: Nets first goal of the season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/26/17) Griffith scored in a 5-1 defeat against Columbus on Wednesday, helping his side avoid the shutout.

    The goal kept the Sabres from being blanked, but did little else, as Griffith isn't much of a scoring option to this point of the year with just two points in nine games. He remains unlikely to be of much use to most fantasy rosters at this point.

    Sabres' Seth Griffith: Survives last round of cuts

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/30/17) Griffith was not among the last round of cuts made by the Sabres on Saturday.

    The Sabres cut their roster to 27 players, but four of them are nursing injuries, which means Griffith will be part of the 23-man roster Opening Night. After a trying season during which he was claimed off waivers three times last year, Griffith has finally cracked an NHL roster as a potential regular. The diminutive but offensively gifted right winger will play on the third line with Sam Reinhart at center and Benoit Pouliot on the opposite wing, which should provide the Sabres with some depth scoring. Although Griffith possesses some tantalizing talent, he's not worth drafting in most leagues until he proves he can keep his job for the whole season and move up the depth chart.

    Sabres' Seth Griffith: Plays on top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/17) Griffith will skate on Ryan O'Reilly's right wing on the top line Friday against Toronto, the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Griffith has impressed at camp so far with three points in two games, and he gets an opportunity to solidify his case for a roster spot. The Leafs will be playing a strong squad with Auston Matthews and veteran Patrick Marleau, so it'll be interesting to see how Griffith stacks up. He has the speed and skill to be a scoring winger in the NHL, but his lack of strength, tenacity and experience hurts his case. If Sam Reinhart moves back to Jack Eichel's wing, there's only one top-six role left up for grabs. Jason Pominville and Zemgus Girgensons have the inside track for that spot right now.

    Sabres' Seth Griffith: Signs one-year deal with Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Griffith signed a one-year deal with the Sabres worth $650,000 at the NHL level, NHL.com's Joe Yerdon reports.

    Griffith is a tweener -- meaning that he's an outstanding scorer in the AHL but can't seem to crack any NHL lineups. Over the past four seasons with AHL Toronto and AHL Providence, Griffith scored 202 points in 203 games, but has only played 56 career NHL games. General manager Jason Botterill wanted to bolster AHL Rochester's lineup, and signing Griffith gives the Americans a dangerous offensive weapon, but he's also a player who can step into the NHL on a short-term basis when the need arises. The 24-year-old has an outside chance to crack the Sabres' roster, but needs to be put in a scoring role to succeed. At 5-foot-9, he's just not equipped to play a bottom-six role. His fantasy value is minimal until his role with the Sabres becomes more clear.
