  • Sabres' Josh Gorges: Blocks five shots in season debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Gorges played 15:06 and blocked five shots in his first appearance this season Thursday against San Jose.

    Gorges sat out the first three games of the season as a healthy scratch before head coach Phil Housley was forced to make lineup changes in an effort to jump-start a Sabres squad still in search of its first win. Housley's emphasis on speed relegated Gorges to the press box, but Gorges showed he can still contribute, and tied Jake McCabe with the most ice time on the penalty kill. At 33 years old, and with a very limited skill set, Gorges is a good soldier but nothing more than a third-pairing defenseman at best. He might have to fight all season long to draw into the lineup. Gorges has little to no fantasy value at the moment.

    Sabres' Josh Gorges: Left unprotected for expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Gorges was not among the players protected by the Sabres for the expansion draft.

    Veteran teammate Zach Bogosian was also left unprotected, which may be a signal that new general manager Jason Botterill is looking to revamp a defense that ranked among the league's worst this past season. Gorges was eligible for the expansion draft because he has a modified no-trade clause rather than a no-movement clause, and has one year left on his contract worth $3.9 million. In three seasons with Buffalo, Gorges has appeared in 189 games, but like Bogosian hasn't been able to stay healthy and has seen his role slowly diminish. Bogosian may be the more enticing pick for Vegas because of his younger age and versatility, but Gorges' contract is much easier to stomach. If Gorges returns to Buffalo, he'll likely stay in a supporting role to Rasmus Ristolainen, Jake McCabe and Nathan Beaulieu, while remaining a staple on the penalty kill. If Gorges isn't selected by Vegas, he could still be dealt in a separate deal.

    Sabres' Josh Gorges: Adds assist in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Gorges recorded an assist, one shot on goal and two hits over 22:10 of ice time in Wednesday's win over Montreal.

    Gorges' helper ended a nine-game point drought that dated back to March 16. He now has five assists and one goal on the year. This season has seen Gorges average just 18:28 of ice time -- down a full two minutes from last year's 20:28. In fact, the 32-year-old has seen a decrease in ice time in each of the past two seasons. That can likely be attributed to a combination of Gorges' age and limited offensive ability, not to mention the Sabres' glut of young defensemen.

    Sabres' Josh Gorges: Scores first goal of campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/10/17) Gorges scored his first goal of the season during Friday's loss to Columbus.

    The veteran defenseman has just the single tally and three assists through 52 games this season, so his lack of offensive production makes him a fantasy afterthought. Additionally, he had averaged just 18:09 of ice time per game entering Friday's tilt, so his role has seen a steady decline over the past two years.

    Sabres' Josh Gorges: Back in tow Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/17) Gorges (abdomen) will play Saturday versus the Senators, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Naturally, Gorges' contributions primarily come in his own zone, as he's registered 77 hits and 62 blocked shots in 34 games. It's no surprise that he's scoreless given that he's hoisted a mere 13 shots on goal. You can safely pass over him in the fantasy realm -- unless your league gives serious points for the defensive stats.
