Remi Elie: Let go by Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie did not receive a qualifying offer from the Sabres and will become a UFA on Friday, Sabres beat writer Joe Yerdon reports

Elie spent the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Rochester, producing eight goals and five assists in 34 contests. He has 106 games of NHL experience, so it's possible the 25-year-old could garner some interest as a depth forward. He hasn't played in the NHL since making 16 appearances in 2018-19 with the Sabres, in which he produced just one helper.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie cleared waivers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Elie only appeared in 16 games for the Sabres last season, collecting just a single point. He will head to AHL Rochester, and will look to improve on last year's 14 points in 25 contests with the club. He figures to be one of the first options for a call-up.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Minor-league bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was waived for the purpose of reassignment by the Sabres on Monday.

Elie played 16 games with the big club last year and recorded just one point, and he's being used in a checking role with 30 hits in that span. The 24-year-old still has plenty of time to develop into a modest offensive threat, however, and he should line up in a top-six role with AHL Rochester if he clears waivers.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Nabs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie inked a one-year, two-way contract with Buffalo on Thursday.

After appearing in 72 games with the Stars in 2017-18, Elie was limited to a mere 16 NHL contests last year. Given the two-way nature of his deal, the winger is unlikely to see a significant uptick in opportunities, especially following the additions of Marcus Johansson and Jimmy Vesey.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Seeking arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie filed for salary arbitration Friday.

Elie didn't see much action with Buffalo last season as he only managed one assist over 16 appearances. The 24-year-old spent most of the 2018-19 season with AHL Rochester, where he accrued eight goals and six assists over 25 regular-season games.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Sabres extend QO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie received a qualifying offer from Buffalo on Tuesday.

Claimed off waivers at the beginning of last season, Elie was unable to carve out a regular role with Buffalo, picking up just a single assist over 16 appearances. Before suiting up for the Sabres, Elie spent the better part of two seasons in Dallas, collecting 21 points in 90 games with the Stars.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Clears waivers, heads to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie cleared waivers Sunday and was assigned to AHL Rochester, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

No teams bit on Elie, who has just one point in 16 games but added a physical presence with 30 hits in that span. The Sabres only have 11 healthy forwards since Johan Larsson is nursing an upper-body injury, so the team will likely recall a player from Rochester for Tuesday's game versus the Wild.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Dropped by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was waived by the Sabres on Saturday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

One could see this coming from a mile away. Elie, who signed a one-year, $735,000 contract with the Stars in July of 2018, ended up on Buffalo's roster after the team claimed him off waivers, but he's only drawn into 16 of a possible 51 games for the parent club this season -- that's hardly any time at all for a player on a one-way deal. We suspect Elie will be reassigned to AHL Rochester in the likely event that he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Back to toiling in press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was a spectator for the final six games leading up to the All-Star break.

Elie has been limited to a depth role with the Sabres, which is a disturbing trend for a skater who was taken in the second round (40th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Obviously, the ex-Star can be left alone in all fantasy formats unless a myriad of injuries open up playing time for the winger.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Staying in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie has played in the Sabres' past three games.

Often a healthy scratch, Elie has found himself in the lineup as of late. He's only appeared in 11 games, with one assist standing next to a goose egg in the scoring column the rest of the campaign. His strongest asset comes in the form of hits, where he has 19. Elie is not likely to help much in any regard, but at least he has the chance to redeem himself now that he's out of the press box for the time being.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Back to press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game versus the Flyers.

Elie had worked his way into eight games for the Sabres. He's collected an assist, his only point, and 16 hits during his time on the ice. He is scratched more often than not, and has limited value even in the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Plays in two straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie took part in Saturday's win in Detroit as well as Tuesday's win over San Jose.

Elie has mainly served as a healthy scratch for the Sabres, only appearing in six games thus far. Prior to appearing in Saturday's game, he hadn't played since Nov. 1. He's being used on the fourth line, and hasn't found the scoresheet yet. Elie also has nine hits, which is the extent of the other category coverage he's brought.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Barely playing for Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie has only appeared in one of six games for the Sabres in November.

Formerly with the Stars, Elie signed a one-year deal with the Sabres in July. It's interesting that No. 81 has played so sparingly because he's under a one-way deal and will be a restricted free agent next summer -- one would think the Sabres would want to get more out of him, but then again, this team has won four straight games and Elie's primarily been deployed in penalty-killing situations anyway. It's safe to drop the skater who's averaging only 11:14 of ice time and has made just four appearances with Buffalo.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Placed on second line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was moved to Buffalo's second line and is scheduled to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Ottawa.

Elie has only suited up for three games while watching the others from the press box. He's only been played in the bottom six since being claimed off waivers from the Stars, but appears set to play alongside Casey Mittelstadt and Sam Reinhart on the second line. This would be a big boon to Elie's fantasy value if he can hang on to that spot.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Making Sabres debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie will make his Sabres debut Saturday against the Rangers.

The Sabres just claimed Elie off waivers Tuesday, and will immediately put him to work on their fourth line against New York. The 23-year-old winger only totaled six goals and 14 points in 72 games with the Stars last season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars at this point.

Sabres' Remi Elie: Now property of Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was claimed off waivers by the Sabres -- via the Stars -- on Tuesday.

Elie was Dallas' second-round (40th overall) pick from the 2013 draft. He has plenty of untapped potential, and the winger's one-way contract should allow him to remain at the top level, though Buffalo could always waive him if he doesn't pan out. Elie has produced 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) over 90 NHL games.

Stars' Remi Elie: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie hit the waiver wire Monday in order to reassign him to the minors, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

After playing in 72 games for the Stars last season, it appears Elie has been beat out for a spot on the 23-man roster by Gemel Smith and Roope Hintz. The 23-year-old Elie has yet to show the scoring touch he had during his time in the OHL, as he has just 21 points in 90 NHL contests in his brief three-year career.

Stars' Remi Elie: Garners one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie signed a one-year, $735,000 contract extension with the Stars on Tuesday.

This is the ninth signing from Stars GM Jim Nill since the free-agency signing period opened Sunday. Elie compiled 14 points (six goals, eight assists) over 72 games last season, but he only saw 10:15 of ice time; perhaps he'll get more rink run under the tutelage of new head coach Jim Montgomery.

Stars' Remi Elie: Presented with qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie received a qualifying offer from the Stars on Monday.

Elie pinballed between AHL Texas and the parent club a fair amount last season, but he probably won't look back once he signs his next NHL contract. The 23-year-old has accumulated 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) over 90 games at hockey's highest level.

April 10, 2018 12:33 PM
Stars' Remi Elie: Shipped off to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elie was reassigned to AHL Texas on Tuesday.

Elie logged 72 games for the Stars this season, in which he tallied six goals, eight helpers and 70 shots while averaging a mere 10:15 of ice time. The winger will link up with the young Stars for their final three regular-season outings and into the postseason. Unless the 22-year-old can secure more consistent minutes for Dallas next season, he will continue to offer low-end fantasy value.
