  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Ready to go Tuesday

    Girgensons (upper body) has been given the green light to play versus Dallas on Tuesday, Joe Yerdon of Bleacher Report reports.

    Girgensons has logged just 31 games this season due to injury, limiting him to just four goals and zero assists while averaging a career-worst 11:56 of ice time. The 30-year-old Latvian will slot into a fourth-line role due to Jack Quinn (lower body) facing an extended stint on the shelf.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Might play Saturday

    Girgensons (lower body) could be available against the Blue Jackets on Saturday, with coach Don Granato telling reporters there is a "good chance" the center will play, per Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News.

    Girgensons has missed the last 16 games due to his lower-body injury but looks poised to return versus Columbus. Prior to his absence, the veteran center was stuck in a 13-game pointless streak during which he recorded just 19 shots.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Still out Wednesday

    Girgensons (lower body) will not be in the lineup against Boston on Wednesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Girgensons was reportedly close to getting into the lineup before the Christmas break, so it shouldn't be too long before the Latvian center is cleared to play. Once the 29-year-old Girgensons is given the green light, he figures to slot into a bottom-six role and will be hard-pressed to get over the 20-point mark after missing that threshold in each of the last seven seasons.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Nearing return to lineup

    Girgensons (lower body) may still be available before the upcoming Christmas break, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports Tuesday.

    Girgensons won't be an option versus Columbus on Tuesday but at least seems to be trending in the right direction. With Jeff Skinner (upper body) also close to returning, Girgensons could struggle to secure a spot in the lineup, especially with youngster Jack Quinn (Achilles) cleared to play.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Scores in win

    Girgensons scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Tampa Bay.

    Girgensons opened the scoring midway through the first period, beating Jonas Johansson with a wrist shot to give the Sabres a 1-0 lead. The 29-year-old forward re-signed with Buffalo in the offseason after posting 10 goals, 18 points and 96 hits in 80 games last season. While his offensive potential is limited, Girgensons should see regular work in a bottom-six role.

    Girgensons signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with Buffalo on Tuesday.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Garners last-second assist

    Girgensons delivered a power-play assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers.

    Girgensons had his shot blocked, but Victor Olofsson scooped up the rebound for a last-second goal by the Sabres. Despite the man-advantage helper, fantasy managers shouldn't expect Girgensons to make a substantial impact with that special teams unit. In fact, this was his first power-play point all season.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Good to return Monday

    Girgensons (illness) is good to play Monday versus Florida, according to Jourdon LaBarber of the Sabres' official site.

    Girgensons missed Saturday's 5-3 victory over Nashville because of the illness. He has four goals and 10 points in 39 games while averaging 12:28 of ice time this season. With Girgensons returning to the lineup, Vinnie Hinostroza is likely to be a healthy scratch.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Skating Sunday

    Girgensons (illness) rejoined the Sabres at practice Sunday, per Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.

    Girgensons missed Saturday's contest with an illness, but it looks like he'll be good to go before Monday's matchup with the Panthers. The 29-year-old forward has four goals and six assists in 39 games this season.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Misses practice Friday

    Girgensons missed practice Friday with a non-COVID illness, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Coach Don Granato is unsure as to whether or not Girgensons will be well enough to travel to Nashville for Saturday's clash with the Predators. Girgensons has four goals and 10 points in 39 games this season but has been pointless in his last five games.

  • Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Gets 10th point of 2022-23

    Girgensons found the back of the net in a 3-1 loss to Ottawa on Sunday.

    Girgensons' marker came at 6:51 of the second period to tie the contest at 1-1. He has four goals and 10 points in 34 games this season. The 28-year-old hasn't reached the 20-point milestone in any season since 2014-15, and while he might be able to surpass that mark this time around, Girgensons' not on track to do much better than that. It doesn't help that he entered the contest averaging just 12:24 of ice time in 2022-23.
