Panthers' Scott Wilson: Pens one-year deal with Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.

Wilson spent the majority of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, totaling 22 points in 37 games, but he also made six appearances with the Sabres, picking up two points over that span. He'll likely have a similar split between leagues with the Panthers in 2020-21, so he won't be a viable fantasy option.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Returned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres assigned Wilson to AHL Rochester on Friday.

Michael Frolik (illness) is expected to return to action against the Penguins on Saturday, so Buffalo's no longer in need of Wilson's services on the wing. The 27-year-old Wilson will likely continue to bounce between leagues for the remainder of the campaign.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Recalled from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Wilson from AHL Rochester on Monday.

Wilson has tallied two points in his six NHL appearances this season, but he's spent most of his time in the minors, where he's scored 19 points in 29 games. The 5-foot-11 forward will likely watch Tuesday's game in Ottawa from the press box, assuming there's not a lineup switch.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Returned to AHL Rochester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was reassigned to the minors Thursday.

Wilson found himself as the odd man out, as the Sabres needed a roster spot in order to activate Victor Olofsson and Kyle Okposo from injured reserve. With 193 games of NHL experience under his belt, the 27-year-old Wilson figures to be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the rest of the 2019-20 campaign.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Scores first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson scored his first goal of the campaign during Thursday's loss to Detroit.

Wilson had been called up to Buffalo the day prior, and he rewarded that move by scoring his first goal since the 2017-18 season. The veteran winger has appeared in just three contests for the Sabres this year and should continue to be seen as an injury fill-in.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Rises to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Wilson from AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

Jean-Sebastian Dea was sent down in a corresponding move. Wilson has produced well in the AHL this year, ranking ninth on the team with 17 points through 27 games. The 27-year-old will likely play in the bottom six for Buffalo if he sees game action.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres sent Wilson to AHL Rochester on Sunday.

The 27-year-old saw action in just two NHL contests in his call-up stint with the big club and will head down to the minors with the Sabres heading into a bye week. Wilson has racked up 14 points in 22 AHL games with Rochester this campaign.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Summoned by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Wilson from AHL Rochester on Friday.

Jeff Skinner (upper body) is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks, so Wilson is likely in for an extended stay with the big club. The 27-year-old has picked up 14 points in 22 AHL appearances this season.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was waived by the Sabres for the purpose of reassignment Monday.

If Wilson clears waivers, he'll land with AHL Rochester. Wilson played 15 games for the Sabres down the stretch last year, picking up three points and a minus-8 rating. He can add a physical presence to the bottom six, but the Sabres opted to have Zemgus Girgensons fill that role with the big club. Wilson may be called up at some point this season, but his fantasy value is negligible with just 49 points in 187 NHL games.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Suiting up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's preseason game versus the Penguins.

Wilson has been held back due to this injury for over a week now, but he'll gear up for an exhibition game against the franchise that drafted him in 2011. The 27-year-old winger has a chance to make the final roster. He posted just three assists over 15 NHL games last year, so he'll need to show well through the rest of the preseason.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Hampered by lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Wilson appears to have avoided a major injury, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss Friday's exhibition matchup with the Maple Leafs. The Sabres should release another update on the 27-year-old winger's status once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Won't return to Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson left Tuesday's preseason game versus the Blue Jackets with an undisclosed injury and won't return, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Wilson left the game during the second period, and it's unclear what's bothering the 27-year-old winger. He's trying to fill a bottom-six role on the Sabres, as he split time between AHL Rochester and the big club last year. More on his condition should be released in the next few days leading up to the Sabres' next preseason game versus the Maple Leafs.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: First point of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson dished a helper in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers

It's his first point in six games since being summoned from AHL Rochester. Wilson is typically used more for his physicality, but he's had only 12 hits since the recall while averaging 10:40 per game. Wilson isn't likely to generate enough in any category to warrant attention by fantasy owners.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Summoned from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has been called up from Rochester of the AHL.

With Kyle Okposo (concussion) out, Wilson comes up to provide some depth. Wilson has only recorded seven points in 17 games for Rochester, so don't expect much production at the NHL level either -- that is if he even cracks the Sabres lineup.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) cleared waivers and will head to Rochester of the AHL.

Wilson has been out of the lineup all season due to an ankle injury, and was placed on waivers upon becoming healthy. He had 14 points in 69 games last season, playing with Pittsburgh, Detroit and Buffalo. The Sabres' depth has improved this year, forcing Wilson to wait in the minors until a spot opens up on the big club.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres waived Wilson (ankle) on Tuesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Wilson has has yet to play this season due to the fractured ankle he suffered during practice in late November. The 26-year-old winger is now fully healthy, but the Sabres currently don't have an opening in their lineup for him to fill. As long as he goes unclaimed, the former Penguin will remain in the minors for the foreseeable future.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Out for rest of calendar year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) remains a few weeks away from returning to game action, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

This news originated from Sabres head coach Phil Housley. Wilson hasn't played at all this season, as he underwent ankle surgery just days before the commencement of the 2018-19 campaign. Most fantasy owners won't flinch at this news since we're talking about a fourth-line winger, but Wilson can be used in a penalty-killing capacity and his eventual return might be of interest to Sabres fans.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: One step closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) is nearing a return to practice, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

Wilson appears close to making his season debut, as he's yet to play a game in 2018-19 after undergoing ankle surgery in October. A return to practice will be a big step in the 26-year-old's recovery process, though even at full health, Wilson is largely irrelevant in a fantasy sense. The left winger has only once finished a season with more than 20 points.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Expected to skate soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) is expected to begin skating soon, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Wilson -- who underwent surgery on his ankle in October -- would seem to be on track for an early December return to the lineup. The winger appeared in 49 games for the Sabres last year in which he tallied 14 points, but also registered a disappointing minus-17 rating. Once healthy, the 26-year-old figures to take on a bottom-six role for the Sabres, though he won't have an easy time holding onto his spot in the lineup given the team's forward depth.

Sabres' Scott Wilson: Transferred to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) is showing up on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

The bottom-six grinder is expected to be out until December after undergoing ankle surgery Monday to repair an injury Wilson sustained in Sunday's practice.
