Dahlin finished his season with a seven-game point drought.
After scoring 44 points in his rookie year, Dahlin followed that up with 40 points in 59 games in 2019-20. However, 2020-21 was a struggle for many Sabres, including Dahlin, who logged only 23 points in 56 contests with a team-worst minus-36 rating. He was unable to find the scoresheet during the final seven matches and had three other droughts lasting at least five games. Dahlin has much more to give, so he'll be a candidate for having a bounce-back campaign in 2021-22.
Dahlin notched an assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
Dahlin carried the puck through the neutral zone, then fed Sam Reinhart across the slot for the Sabres' third goal of the game. The 21-year-old Dahlin has 23 points, 99 shots, 20 PIM, 67 hits, 37 blocked shots and a minus-34 rating through 49 appearances this season.
Dahlin scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Friday's 6-4 win over the Bruins.
The 21-year-old has had a sluggish campaign overall, but he seems to be finding a spark late. Dahlin has three goals and 10 points over the last 12 games, but on the season he's managed only five goals and 22 points in 48 contests.
Dahlin collected two assists and a season-high eight shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh. He also had two PIM and one hit.
Dahlin figured in on goals by Arttu Ruotsalainen and Sam Reinhart, the latter coming on a power play, to help the Sabres build a 3-0 lead. Dahlin has enjoyed a fine April, amassing two goals and six assists in 10 contests.
Dahlin scored an even-strength goal to complement six hits in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.
Dahlin buried a slap shot through traffic with the goal sending the game to overtime. The supremely talented Swedish defenseman has recorded at least one point in five of the last six contests, and Dahlin's physical edge seems to be paying dividends of late.
Dahlin scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.
The 2018 first overall pick has rarely displayed the ability to take over games, but he did so here. Dahlin tied it at three apiece late in the second period, then provided the lone helper on Casey Mittelstadt's power-play game-winner in the third. It has been a forgettable third season for Dahlin after he reached the 40-point mark in each of his first two campaigns, but perhaps he'll be able to build on his first multi-point performance of the season.
Dahlin scored a goal on two shots while adding five hits in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins. He also had two PIM.
Dahlin's point shot late in the opening period somehow eluded Pittsburgh netminder Tristan Jarry, reducing the Penguins' lead to 2-1. The goal was Dahlin's first since Jan. 31, ending a span of 20 consecutive games without lighting the lamp. It's been a trying year for everyone in Buffalo this season and Dahlin is no exception; the third-year defenseman has seen his offensive production cut in half compared to 2019-20 while logging a league-worst minus-30 rating.
Dahlin recorded an assist, six hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.
Dahlin had a hand in the second of Sam Reinhart's two first-period tallies. The 20-year-old defenseman also displayed a rare physical edge -- Dahlin had recorded multiple hits just twice this season prior to Tuesday's aggressive output. The Swede has 11 points (eight on the power play), 52 shots on net, 24 hits and a minus-21 rating in 24 outings.
Dahlin recorded a power-play assist in Tuesday's win over New Jersey.
The apple gives Dahlin points in three consecutive games. He's up to seven points, all of them scored in his 10 most recent affairs. After a slow start, Dahlin is starting to heat up, but it's worth noting that all of his points have been generated from the power play. That's great for leagues counting power-play points, but it's concerning that he doesn't have an even-strength point through 16 games. He'll look to buck that trend and improve on his minus-15 rating.
Dahlin joined his team for practice Sunday, meaning he's been activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Dahlin had resided in the protocol since Monday, as he was one of nine players on the team that was in the protocol. This is huge news for the Sabres, who will now be with Dahlin's services for Monday's game against the Islanders. The Swede has gotten off to a slow start in the 2021 campaign, collecting three points, 32 shots and a minus-9 rating while averaging 19:49 of ice time in 10 games.
Dahlin was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Monday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
The Sabres now have nine players in the league's protocol. Thursday's game against the Capitals is still on the schedule for now, but it wouldn't be surprising if that was pushed back further.
Dahlin scored his first goal of the season during Sunday's loss to the Devils.
Dahlin was blanked in his first six contests, but he has begun to find his offense lately. He's scored three points in his past four meetings, all on the man advantage. It was only a matter of time before the 20-year-old started generating offense, but this will provide some relief to managers that were worried about his slow start.
Dahlin has no points through four games this season.
Despite Dahlin's lack of offense, he's also seen his ice time drop in each passing game. He skated 24:20 in his season opener, but only 18:34 in his most recent contest. He's now on Buffalo's third defense pairing, which doesn't help his fantasy value. Those who drafted the 2018 first overall pick will be hoping to see him return to the top pairing and start producing.
Dahlin scored four goals and amassed an impressive 36 assists in 59 games prior to the suspension of play in mid-March.
The 2018 first-overall pick has had an impressive age-19 season, as he paces Buffalo's blueliners in points. Dahlin's 36 helpers are also second among Sabres behind only star forward Jack Eichel, and the minus-7 rating isn't really all that bad for a teenage rearguard on a team with a minus-22 goal differential. Owners would probably like to see Dahlin shoot the puck more (90 SOG), but he's more of puck mover anyway, so there's not much to complain about here given his age and production.
Dahlin registered a pair of assists and had one shot with one block in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over Washington.
Dahlin drew the secondary assist on Victor Olofsson's first-period goal, then teed up a perfect feed for Jack Eichel on his power-play tally in the middle frame. The 19-year-old Dahlin has followed up a spectacular rookie campaign with very similar production in 2019-20, posting four goals and 40 points in 59 games.
Dahlin collected an assist during Thursday's loss to the Penguins.
The assist ended a five-game point drought for Dahlin. Prior to the drought, he went on a run of 16 points in 17 contests. He inevitably went a bit cold, and the point could help him start up another productive run. The sophomore is now up to 38 points in 57 appearances.
Dahlin contributed an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Dahlin has posted a goal and four helpers over his four-game point streak. The 19-year-old Swede has 35 points, 79 shots, 56 hits and 34 PIM through 49 contests this season. He's still working on the defensive aspect of the game, but fantasy owners can overlook that given how strong Dahlin's offense can be.
Dahlin dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Columbus.
Both of Dahlin's helpers came on goals scored by Victor Olofsson, who made his return from a lower-body injury. The first assist helped Buffalo tie it at 2-2 on the power play in the third period, while the second helper led to Olofsson's overtime winner. Dahlin's on a roll, having mustered 13 points in his last 14 games.
Dahlin returned to action in Friday's 3-2 win over the Rangers after a two-game absence due to an upper-body injury, skating 15:18 without a point.
The 19-year-old didn't see quite as much ice time as usual, but he still chipped in two shots and three blocked shots. With the injury behind him, expect Dahlin to handle a full workload when the Sabres host the Ducks on Sunday afternoon.
Dahlin (upper body) told reporters he'll be returning to the lineup against the Rangers on Friday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Dahlin missed the last two games due to his upper-body issue but appears set to jump back into the lineup. The blueliner has been rolling of late, as he's racked up nine points in his last 10 contests, including four power-play assists. The Swede should be capable of reaching the 40-point mark for a second straight year and could even set a new career high.
