  • Sabres' Alexander Nylander: Returns to action

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/19) Nylander (upper body) returned to AHL Rochester's lineup for Saturday's game against AHL Laval.

    Nylander was dealing with an upper-body injury prior to Saturday's contest, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 2016 first-round pick has been pretty productive in the minors, notching 22 points in 33 games, so he'll likely get a shot with the big club at some point this season.

    Sabres' Alexander Nylander: Injured in AHL play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/19) Nylander left Friday's AHL contest against the Toronto Marlies and is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Bill Hoppe of The Buffalo News reports.

    Nylander was the Sabres' top pick and eighth overall selection in the 2016 draft. He was a bust in almost every sense of the word for nearly two seasons, then started to figure things out attitude wise and in the way the North American game is played, and has been thriving all season. The young Swede currently has 21 points in 30 games for Rochester while getting accolades from the coaching staff, so we'll have to see if the injury slows him down at all. If the day-to-day label truly holds, it shouldn't be much of a setback toward his career climb, while a call to Buffalo could be in the cards later this season.

    Sabres' Alexander Nylander: Lighting up Rochester

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/18) Nylander is off to a terrific start with Rochester of the American Hockey League, Bill Hoppe of The Buffalo News reports.

    Nylander has two goals and five assists in seven games for the Americans, a much higher scoring rate than his previous two seasons. He entered the American Hockey League at age 18 and wasn't comfortable with the transition right away. But now he's playing with much more confidence and determination, which is showing in his numbers. He'll surely be one of the first choices when the Sabres need to call up a forward.

    Sabres' Alexander Nylander: Reassigned to AHL Rochester

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/18) Nylander will start the 2018-19 campaign in the minors after being demoted Monday.

    The 2016 first-rounder's chances of securing a spot on the 23-man roster were likely hurt by the number of wingers the club added during the offseason, including Jeff Skinner, Conor Sheary and Vladimir Sobotka. Instead, the 20-year-old will likely play in the minors for the vast majority of the season, so long as the Sabres stay healthy and don't fall out of the playoff chase.

    Sabres' Alexander Nylander: Posts goal Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/27/18) Nylander scored Buffalo's only goal in a 5-1 preseason loss to the Penguins on Wednesday.

    The 20-year-old has played very well this preseason and has an argument to make the Sabres opening night lineup. In 51 AHL games last season, Nylander posted eight goals and 27 points. He doesn't have much value in redraft leagues, but keep an eye on him, especially in keeper formats.
