Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buffalo assigned Dea to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

The Sabres promoted Scott Wilson in a corresponding move, so Dea is likely in for an extended stay with Rochester. The 25-year-old forward went scoreless while averaging just 8:30 of ice time per contest during his two-game stint with the big club.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Dea from AHL Rochester on Friday.

Kyle Okposo (upper body) isn't expected to be available for Saturday's clash with Columbus, so Dea will round out Buffalo's depth up front against the Blue Jackets. The 25-year-old has been pretty productive with Rochester this season, notching 13 goals and 30 points in 41 games.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buffalo assigned Dea to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

Dea has been a healthy scratch for five of the Sabres' last six contests, and he only logged 5:53 of ice time in his single appearance, so this move makes sense. The 25-year-old forward will return to a prominent role with Rochester, where he's racked up seven goals and 13 points in 18 games this campaign.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was promoted from AHL Rochester on Monday.

Unless the Sabres want to continue rolling with seven defensemen in the lineup, Dea figures to suit up versus the Lightning on Monday after Evan Rodrigues (undisclosed) was injured in Sunday's clash with the Panthers. In 18 games for the Americans, the 25-year-old Dea notched seven goals and six helpers and should be in contention to stick around if he can carry his scoring touch over.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Drops to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea (lower body) was waived by the Sabres for purpose of reassignment Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Dea didn't practice Monday morning, and the Sabres will hope to pass him through waivers to AHL Rochester. The 25-year-old pivot may be recalled at some point this regular season if the big club runs into injuries, but his fantasy upside is minimal with just seven points in 29 NHL games.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Dealing with lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea won't practice Monday due to a lower-body injury.

Dea is battling for a bottom-six role with the Sabres, although he's expected to start the season with AHL Rochester. Last season, the 25-year-old posted 17 goals and 44 points in 46 minor-league games, and he registered six points in 23 NHL games between the Devils and Penguins. However, he hasn't been able to fit the mold of an NHL club for a full season. Dea will look to shake this injury before Wednesday's preseason game versus the Blue Jackets.

Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Headed for Queen City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea inked a two-year, one-way contract with Buffalo worth $1.4 million on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The fact that Dea's deal is one-way in nature will ensure the center gets every opportunity to earn a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night versus the Lightning on Oct. 3. The 25-year-old put up 17 goals and 27 assists in 46 minor-league contests with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Springfield, but saw limited NHL action (three games). With Buffalo, Dea figures to slot into a fourth-line role, but could push for more opportunities throughout the 2019-20 campaign.

Panthers' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Dealt to Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was dealt to the Panthers in exchange for the Penguins' ask of Chris Wideman on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Dea had been playing in the minor league with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, as he failed to parlay his skills into a full-time gig in his second go-around with the Penguins. The 25-year-old center has compiled five goals and two helpers over 28 career games between Pittsburgh and New Jersey.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

The Penguins utilized Dea in the three games after his latest call-up to the big stage, with the Quebec native scoring once over that span before sitting out the last three as a healthy scratch. At this juncture, the fifth-year center is better off on in the minors, where he'll get heavy playing time.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was promoted from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Dea, who was re-claimed off waivers by the Penguins on Nov. 29, will link up with the club after Dominik Simon (lower body) was placed on injured reserve. In his 20 games with the Devils, the 24-year-old Dea tallied three goals, two helpers and 27 shots while averaging 10:44 of ice time. Whether the natural center slots into the lineup versus Ottawa on Saturday will likely depend on the health of Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed).

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Claimed off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea will rejoin the Penguins after the club snatched him off the waiver wire Thursday, Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com reports.

Since the Penguins were originally trying to move him to the minors, the team will be able to immediately ship Dea to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. In 20 games with the Devils, the center notched five points, six PIM and 19 hits. While Derek Grant should continue to fill the fourth-line center role, the Pens are high on Dea and could give him a look sooner rather than later with Matt Cullen (lower body) sidelined.

Devils' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Back on waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was placed on waivers by the Devils on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Dea -- who was claimed by New Jersey at the start of the season -- played in 20 games in which he tallied three goals, two assists and 27 shots while averaging 10:44 of ice time. The move will allow the team to send the center to the minors if he clears, but the Penguins may be interested in getting him back into the fold.

Devils' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Claimed off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was claimed off waivers by the Devils -- via the Penguins -- on Friday, Jim Cerny of Sporting News reports.

Dea racked up 50 points in 70 games with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season, so it doesn't come as a shock to see a team snatch him up off the waiver wire. The 24-year-old has played in just six NHL games for Pittsburgh and while he figures to spend some time in the press box for New Jersey, he likely will log significantly more games this season with his new club.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was placed on waivers Thursday for the purpose of reassignment to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com reports.

With general manager Jim Rutherford essentially guaranteeing Daniel Sprong would make the 23-man roster, there was really only two spots available and Dea will not be one of the guys sticking around for Opening Night. The 24-year-old should headline the list of potential call-ups throughout the season and could see action in a handful of NHL games as a stand-in.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Lands one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Dea was qualified by the Penguins at the deadline and signed a deal that matches his previous one with the organization. The youngster logged five games for the club this past season, in which he tallied one goal (a game-winner), one shot and two PIM while averaging a mere 5:29 of ice time. Pittsburgh is stacked down the middle of its lineup, which means the center will likely need to shift to wing if he is going to see more action during the 2018-19 campaign.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Appears for five games in second season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea scored one goal in five games during 2017-18, while logging nine hits and one blocked shot.

Although Dea was able to make the lineup while injuries were striking Pittsburgh in January, he was handed just 5:29 of ice time and only launched one shot on goal -- which went in, giving him a 100 shooting percentage for the year. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old had a fantastic year in the minors, posting 50 points (18 goals, 32 assists) in 70 games and flashing the offensive potential that was on display in his last two juniors seasons, when he tallied 160 points in 133 games for QMJHL Rouyn-Noranda. Given Pittsburgh's forward depth, it will be hard for Dea to crack the roster, but he will need a new contract regardless as he's due to become a restricted free agent.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Despite recording his first NHL goal, Dea will be shipped back to the Baby Pens. The move shouldn't come as a surprise, however, considering he averaged a mere 5:29 of ice time in his five outings. In a corresponding transaction, the club activated Carter Rowney (upper body) off injured reserve.

January 29, 2018 09:56 AM
Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was promoted from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

Dea's call-up doesn't bode well for Carter Rowney's (upper body) availability ahead of Tuesday's clash with San Jose. The 23-year-old Dea spent the NHL All-Star break down with the Baby Pens in order to continue working on his game. All told, in 37 minor-league contests, the center has notched 10 goals, 14 helpers and a plus-14 rating. Dea should continue to get a shot on Pittsburgh's fourth line as long as Rowney remains sidelined.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Packaged off to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Dea should look back fondly on this four-game stint with Pittsburgh, considering he was able to tally his first NHL goal. Outside of that tally, the 23-year-old didn't offer much in terms of fantasy value -- he recorded two PIM, one shot on goal and five hits. The Quebec native saw a mere 5:17 of ice time per game, which explains his demotion to the minors, where he will get significantly more minutes. The move allows the Pens to activate Carter Rowney (upper body) from injured reserve once given the all-clear.

Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Records goal against Hurricanes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dea scored his first NHL goal versus Carolina on Tuesday.

Dea fired home a one-timer on a 2-on-1 break, capitalizing on a fantastic feed from Bryan Rust. The 23-year-old Dea is currently filling out the fourth-line center role, which has allowed coach Mike Sullivan to move Jake Guentzel back to the wing. Even though Dea was able to find the back of the net, his limited minutes (4:31 per game) are a pretty clear indication he will rejoin the Baby Pens once Carter Rowney (upper body) is cleared to return.
