  • Sabres' Tage Thompson: Shuttled back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/19) Thompson was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Acquired in a trade with the Blues when the free-agency signing period opened in July of 2018, Thompson has been trusted with a modest amount of time on the power play (00:52) in a Sabres uniform, but the second-year skater is only at seven goals and five assists to go with a minus-22 rating through 65 top-level games this season. Furthermore, with just one point (an assist) since February, it's clear that Thompson needs to regain his confidence, so he'll aim to do that against weaker competition starting with Friday's game against AHL Laval.

    Sabres' Tage Thompson: Goalless in 22 straight games

    (3/26/19) Thompson will look to end his lengthy goal drought during Tuesday's meeting in Ottawa.

    Thompson is struggling through a lengthy goal drought, having not scored a goal in 22 straight contests. He has just a single assist during that span, bringing his total up to 12 points on the season. He's been a healthy scratch four times during this drought, and could see himself back in the press box again if he can't pick up a point soon.

    Sabres' Tage Thompson: Out of lineup Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/19) Thompson is a healthy scratch for Tuedsay's game versus the Flyers, Joe Yerdon of The Athletic reports.

    He's in the midst of a 12-game pointless slump, and the 21-year-old has a minus-4 rating and just 19 shots on net in that span. Scott Wilson will fill his place on the third line, while Thompson's next chance to enter the lineup will be Friday versus the Penguins.

    Sabres' Tage Thompson: Failing to find scoresheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/19) Thompson will look to end his eight-game point drought in Tuesday's contest with the Panthers.

    Thompson has been held off the scoresheet during his past eight games, which led to him being a healthy scratch in the midst of his drought. He's shown flashes of potential, but hasn't been able to bring that effort consistently. Sitting at just 11 points in 50 games, he only provides value for the deepest of leagues. Even then, his peripherals aren't great, with 89 shots on goal and 49 hits being his most notable contributions.

    Sabres' Tage Thompson: Picks up goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Thompson lit the lamp in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.

    That's Thompson's third point in his past five contests, two of them goals. He's been playing in Buffalo's top six, and seeing time on the power play, with over two minutes of PP ice in two of the last three contests. He has 10 points in 38 games on the year, and gains a boost in value for as long as he can hang onto a top-six position.
