Sabourin had just six points on the season as the hiatus occurred, going scoreless in his final five games.
Sabourin never really got started during his first year in the NHL, seeing his ice time usually stay under 10 minutes per game. Given that he'll be 28 in July and hasn't shown much in terms of fantasy relevance, there's little reason to think he's going to be much of a factor moving forward.
Sabourin's 13 shifts against Dallas on Sunday were the most for the wing since 15 on Dec. 30 against Pittsburgh -- the last time he registered a point.
This really wasn't great for Sabourin in fantasy terms, as it only meant that he was on the ice for a Stars goal and posted a minus-1 for the game. With so few contributions on the stat sheet and no sign of things changing, there's no reason Sabourin should be in your lineup.
Sabourin recorded an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
Sabourin was playing in his second game since returning from a concussion and an illness, which collectively cost him 26 games. The 27-year-old has produced three points, 10 shots on goal, 30 hits and 17 PIM in 13 appearances this season. He's a non-factor in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
Sabourin (illness) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

The 27-year-old was expected to return to the lineup Monday after missing 25 games due to a concussion, but he'll need to wait until after the holiday break after falling ill. Sabourin will aim to get healthy for a matchup against the Devils on Dec. 29.
Sabourin (concussion) will play in Monday's game against the Sabres, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.
Sabourin will be activated from injured reserve and take the ice in a game for the first time since a scary incident when he collided with Boston's David Backes on Nov. 2.

Sabourin (concussion) could be back in the lineup before the Christmas break, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.
While Sabourin won't be in the lineup versus the Predators on Thursday, he is certainly making strides and could be an option before long. Once cleared to play and activated off injured reserve, the Ontario native will likely slot into a bottom-six role but could push for more minutes as the season progresses.
Sabourin (concussion) took the ice Monday in a non-contact jersey, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Sabourin (head) returned to practice Saturday, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

Sabourin (head) has started working out again, although he still hasn't skated, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Sabourin (head) is out indefinitely, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

Sabourin (head) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 2, per the NHL's official media site.
Sabourin's scary injury from this past Saturday will keep him out at least another two games, and he'll be eligible to return this Saturday against the Hurricanes. That may be an aggressive timeline considering the nature of his issue, and Bobby figures to continue slotting in while Sabourin sits out.
Sabourin (head) will travel back to Ottawa for further evaluation, ruling him out of the team's next two games.

Coach Pierre Dorion said Sunday that Sabourin (undisclosed) is expected to be released from the hospital Sunday and also suffered a fractured nose.
Sabourin got so great news Sunday after he was stretchered off the ice in Saturday's game after colliding with Bruins forward David Backes. It was certainly a scary scene for Sabourin, but the fact that he's able to be discharged from the hospital so quick is a positive sign. With a fractured nose on top of his already existing injury, consider the winger a long shot to suit up in Monday's game against New York at the very least.
Sabourin (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus Boston on a stretcher after colliding with Bruins forward David Backes, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Sabourin appeared to lose consciousness after colliding with Backes on a hit along the boards in the neutral zone. He was taken off on a stretcher, but the winger was able to give the crowd a thumbs up on his way off, a good sign in an otherwise scary scene. It's too early to say how much time Sabourin will miss, but he should be considered doubtful for Monday's game in New York.
Sabourin has been told he can expect to stay in Ottawa.
Sabourin isn't much of a fantasy producer, but the Senators love the work that he's done on defense to this point. Unless your league rewards PIMs, he doesn't have much to offer fantasy owners, as he appears to be the kind of player who's much more valuable to his real team than fantasy owners.

Sabourin (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Sabourin is dealing with some soreness following Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Toronto, so his status for Saturday's contest likely won't be determined until after morning skate. The 27-year-old forward scored a goal while logging 8:27 of ice time in his NHL debut against the Maple Leafs.

It was the first career NHL goal for Sabourin, who cracked the Senators roster out of training camp on a professional trout. The 27-year-old winger spent his first seven professional seasons in the AHL, amassing 646 career PIM in 308 games and scoring more than eight goals in a season only once.
Sabourin inked a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa on Friday.
Sabourin spent the 2018-19 campaign with AHL Stockton, tallying eight points in 43 contests.
