Nicholas Baptiste: Not qualified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste wasn't given a qualifying offer from Toronto, making him a free agent, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

Baptiste didn't see any time with the big club last season, but put up 29 points in 73 AHL games. The NHL portion of his resume includes 10 points in 47 games with the Sabres. The 23-year-old won't likely make a fantasy impact with whichever team he signs with for the upcoming season.

Maple Leafs' Nicholas Baptiste: Packs bags for Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was dealt to Toronto from Nashville for future considerations Sunday.

The 23-year-old winger has 10 goals and 20 points in 54 games at the AHL level this season. He is expected to head to AHL Toronto and likely won't see any NHL action barring a lengthy injury to a Maple Leafs forward.

Predators' Nicholas Baptiste: Demoted to AHL Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was reassigned to the minors Tuesday.

After picking up Phil Di Giuseppe off waivers, the Predators sent Baptiste to the minors since his services as a spare forward were no longer needed. The 23-year-old winger has yet to appear in a game for Nashville this season and could struggle to break into the lineup at any point the rest of the way.

Predators' Nicholas Baptiste: Brought up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Monday.

With both Kyle Turris (lower body) and Colton Sissons (lower body) dealing with injuries, the club needed an extra forward ahead of the club's clash with Washington on Monday. Whether Baptiste actually slots into the lineup remains to be seen, but Rocco Grimaldi figures to be the odd man out if he does in fact play.

Predators' Nicholas Baptiste: Sent to Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was traded by the Sabres to the Predators on Monday for defenseman Jack Dougherty.

Baptiste played 33 games with the Sabres last season, picking up four goals and two assists. He had just been sent down to the AHL before being dealt. However, if the 23-year-old couldn't make Buffalo's lineup, he's got basically no chance to earn a spot with the Preds. It looks like the minors is going to be his home for most of the year.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was waived by the Sabres on Saturday, Capfriendly reports.

Baptiste played in 33 games for Buffalo last year, recording six points, but it looks like the team's offseason moves and infusion of prospects have forced him out of a roster spot. He'll look to earn a call-up later in the season.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Signs one-year, two-way deal with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Sabres on Saturday worth $788,000, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Picked 69th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Baptiste was on the ice for a career-high 33 games last season. Still just 22 years old, he still has plenty of time to expand on his potential. In 47 career games, he's recorded seven goals and three assists.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Receives qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was tendered a qualifying offer from the Sabres on Monday.

Baptiste was on the ice for a career-high 33 games during the 2017-18 season, tallying four goals and two assists during that stretch. While he was stuck in a bottom-six role, Baptiste still showed plenty of potential and at just 22 years old, will get at least one more year to develop with the Sabres following Monday's qualifying offer.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Heads to AHL Rochester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Sunday.

Baptiste was stuck in a bottom-six role in 33 games for the Sabres, averaging 9:58 of ice time per contest. However, the 22-year-old potted four goals and added two helpers in that span. Baptiste will be eligible for the Calder Cup Playoffs.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: First two-goal NHL game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste scored twice, including the game-winner, in Saturday's 5-3 victory over Chicago.

It was a dream game for Baptiste. Not only did he score the winner, but it was his first multi-goal game in the NHL. Baptiste doesn't have much fantasy value right now, but it's still nice to note memorable performances.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Technically sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was reassigned to AHL Rochester in a paper move Monday, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

This means that Baptiste was only assigned to the AHL as a formality, and he'll be staying with the Sabres. This move was made simply to make the 22-year-old eligible for the AHL postseason. Baptiste has played 14 games with Buffalo this year, but he's only averaged 8:45 of ice time per contest.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Recalled to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was recalled from AHL Rochester on Sunday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

With Jack Eichel (ankle) out indefinitely, Baptiste figures to see some playing time in the coming weeks. The 22-year-old forward has played eight NHL games this season, scoring just one goal. There are better fantasy replacements for Eichel and Baptiste can be left on the waiver wire for now.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Saturday.

Defenseman Nathan Beaulieu was activated, which meant somebody had to be returned to the minors to make room. That somebody was Baptiste. The 22-year-old played in four games after being called up in January, scoring his first goal, and point, of the season.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Receives call-up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was called up from AHL Rochester on Friday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Baptiste has managed seven goals and 10 assists through 34 games for the Amerks of the AHL this season. Buffalo could use the extra depth up front since Jacob Josefson (lower body) remains on injured reserve ahead of Saturday's home game against the Stars.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Returned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was assigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday.

Baptiste was held without a point in four games with the Sabres after getting called up in early November. He averaged eight minutes per game and managed to register four shots on goal and two hits, and will return to his usual top-six role with the Amerks. Should there be another injury, Baptiste will be one of the first to get called up. Kyle Criscuolo, who was called up earlier on Thursday, will likely take Baptiste's spot in the lineup.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Slated to dress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste, who was called up on Nov. 1, is on track to play his first NHL game this season Tuesday against Washington, The Buffalo News reports.

Baptiste traveled with the team on their two-game road trip but did not play, but with Justin Bailey (lower body) and Jacob Josefson (foot) nursing injuries, Baptiste could draw into the lineup Tuesday, replacing Matt Moulson. Head coach Phil Housley wanted Baptiste to get in a few practices before he made his season debut, and will likely play him on the third line with Sam Reinhart and Seth Griffith. Griffith and Baptiste bring some speed and quickness to the lineup, but both are relatively inexperienced and may need to be sheltered against a tough Washington team. In 14 games with the Sabres last year, Baptiste scored three goals and four points.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was recalled from AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old center -- who was selected in the third round (69th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft -- heads back to the parent club having picked up three goals and two helpers over eight games for the AHL's Amerks. Even before his call-up, Buffalo already had enough players on the active roster to get by without Baptiste in Thursday's game against the Coyotes, but he still may tag into the lineup as a change-of-pace forward.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was cut by the Sabres on Thursday.

Baptiste was hoping to translate a 14-game run with the Sabres last season into a roster spot this season, but he faced a lot of competition in camp, especially after the Sabres claimed Jordan Nolan off waivers Wednesday. Baptiste will return to Rochester, where he's spent most of the past two seasons; he'll play an important top-six role with the Amerks and will surely see some NHL action this season if call-ups are needed. Baptiste is on the right track, but he didn't impress enough during the Prospects Challenge or the preseason.

Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Guns for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heading into the season on the final year of his entry-level contract, Baptiste is confident this is the year he'll crack the Sabres lineup, the Olean Times Herald reports.

"I think it's my year to crack the team," Baptiste said in the report. A third-round pick in 2013, Baptiste took big steps in his development last season, scoring 25 goals and 41 points in 59 games in the AHL and appearing in 14 games with the Sabres. Baptiste's a versatile winger with middle-six upside, but the Sabres acquired Jason Pominville and Benoit Pouliot during the summer, so he'll face a lot of competition at camp. With the logjam of wingers, Baptiste will likely begin the season with AHL Rochester again, but don't be surprised if he gets called up to the big club at some point this coming season.

February 20, 2017 05:40 PM
Sabres' Nicholas Baptiste: Sent down Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baptiste was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Monday, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

The forward hasn't been playing much, only averaging 9:14 per game, but he does have four points in 14 games. With the Sabres on a bye week, Baptiste will go down to get some extra work, and could find his way back up before Saturday's game in Colorado.
