  • Sabres' Casey Nelson: Still not skating

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/18) Nelson (upper body) has yet to begin skating, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Nelson has missed Buffalo's past two contests, and it appears he will miss some more time. Nelson has played in 22 games and collected five points. Even when he returns, he's the sixth defenseman at best, where he will rotate in and out of the lineup.

    Sabres' Casey Nelson: Tabbed for injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/18) Nelson (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    Considering Nelson was labeled week-to-week by the team, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him on IR. The blueliner is averaging a mere 14:42 of ice time this season, which will severely limit his fantasy value. Even once cleared to play, Nelson isn't a lock for regular minutes, especially once Matt Hunwick (neck) becomes available.

    Sabres' Casey Nelson: Labeled week-to-week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Nelson is considered week-to-week due to an upper-body injury.

    Nelson departed Tuesday's game because of the issue, leaving his status in question as Saturday's game against the Flyers approaches. Considering the label, it's fairly safe to assume he won't be ready to return for Saturday's contest, which could force the Sabres to add another defenseman from the AHL if neither Matt Hunwick (neck) nor Marco Scandella (upper body) is able to retake the ice.

    Sabres' Casey Nelson: Suffers injury Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/4/18) Nelson exited Tuesday's game versus the Maple Leafs with an undisclosed injury and is unlikely to return, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Nelson provides a solid defensive game that's necessary against a powerhouse like the Maple Leafs. His next chance to play will be Saturday versus the Flyers.

    Sabres' Casey Nelson: In lineup back home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/18) Nelson will be in the lineup against host Minnesota on Saturday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    After spectating for four straight games, Nelson will tag in for Nathan Beaulieu, who is simply getting a night off. You would be hard-pressed to see any fantasy owner starting Nelson since he doesn't get much fanfare as an undrafted third-pairing defenseman. The 26-year-old with the right shot is from Minnesota, which probably factored into coach Phil Housley's decision to play him against the Wild.
