Top John-Jason Peterka News

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two points in Tuesday's rout

    Peterka scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Kings.

    The 22-year-old opened the scoring early in the first period. He fired a shot at David Rittich that trickled through the netminder and lay in the crease, and Peterka had enough time to completely circle the net and tap the puck home on his backhand before anyone on the Kings' defense reacted. He's delivered three multi-point performances in the last five games, a stretch in which he's piled up five goals and seven points.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Sets career mark in points

    Peterka scored two goals Saturday in a 5-2 win over San Jose.

    He was J.J. on the spot on his first goal, stuffing in a rebound after Kaapo Kahkonen stopped Dylan Cozens' wraparound. Cozens set Peterka up in the third period for a one-timer from the right circle on a 3-on-2. Peterka's two-goal performance Saturday gives him a career-high 34 points through 49 games this season. He delivered 32 points in 77 games during his 2022-23 rookie campaign. The play of Peterka has been a bright spot for the Sabres this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Three points in comeback win

    Peterka scored twice on four shots, added an assist and went plus-4 in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Kings.

    This was Peterka's best game of the season, as he scored the Sabres' first two goals before setting up Dylan Cozens for an insurance marker. Peterka hadn't earned a multi-point effort since Nov. 19. The winger has produced seven points over 10 outings in January, offering steady offense in a middle-six role. He's at 16 goals, 16 assists, 128 shots on net and a plus-6 rating through 48 contests, production that's roughly in line with what he did over 77 outings last season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scores goal in win

    Peterka scored a goal on three shots in a 3-0 victory over Chicago on Thursday.

    Peterka appears to be finding his scoring touch again with two goals and eight shots in his last four outings. This recent offensive performance follows a 12-game goal drought that ran from mid-December to early January. The 22-year-old German has already set a new career high in goals and needs just five more points (he's at 28) to reach a new personal best in that category as well.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Collects assist

    Peterka notched an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    Peterka reached the 10-assist mark with a secondary helper on Zach Benson's first-period goal. Over seven games in December, Peterka's offense has slowed down a bit with two goals and two helpers. He is at 22 points, 84 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 30 contests overall, putting him on pace to easily shatter his rookie-year total of 32 points in 77 games from 2022-23.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Notches 12th goal of season

    Peterka scored a goal in Monday's 5-2 home win against the Coyotes.

    Peterka finished with a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in 16:44 of ice time across 20 shifts. The tally was his 12th of the season, already equaling his previous career high set last season over 77 games. Peterka finished with 32 points in 2022-23, and his current pace would result in him getting 34 goals and 59 points this time around, provided he stays healthy. The 21-year-old will look to keep the good times rolling Wednesday against the Avalanche.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scores against Rangers

    Peterka found the back of the net in a 5-1 win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Peterka opened the scoring with his marker midway through the first period. It was his ninth goal and 17th point in 22 appearances this season. The 21-year-old struggled at the start of the campaign, supplying just two goals over his first seven contests, but since then, Peterka hasn't been held off the scoresheet in consecutive games.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Rocking four-game, five-point run

    Peterka scored a goal in the first period of Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Washington.

    This guy is hot. Peterka has 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in his last 12 games and extended his point streak to four games (two goals, three assists). At this rate, Peterka will double his 32-point season from 2022-23. The 20-year-old winger is tied with Casey Mittelstadt for second in team scoring with 15 points, one behind Rasmus Dahlin. Peterka's eight goals tie him with Jeff Skinner for the team lead.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Supplies two helpers vs. Chicago

    Peterka registered two assists in a 3-2 win over Chicago on Sunday.

    Peterka's second helper was recorded on the power play. He's up to seven goals and 14 points in 18 outings this season, including two points with the man advantage. While Sunday was a positive night for him overall, it's a little concerning that Peterka logged just 14:35 of ice time, which is his lowest total since Oct. 27. Peterka averaged only 13:22 over his first eight contests this campaign, and his offensive production reflected that modest role (three goals, no assists), but the 21-year-old supplied four goals and nine points while averaging 16:53 TOI over nine appearances from Oct. 29-Nov. 17. If his role declines again, his scoring might begin to take a hit, too, but Sunday's game alone isn't enough to constitute a trend.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Pots goal in loss

    Peterka scored a goal on four shots and added two PIM in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    Peterka has enjoyed a productive November with three goals and five assists over eight games. The 21-year-old winger tallied in the third period Friday, but the Sabres couldn't find an equalizer. He's up to seven goals, 12 points, 43 shots on net, eight PIM and a plus-4 rating through 17 contests overall. Peterka continues to provide solid scoring-only production from a second-line role, and he may get a boost in power-play time while Tage Thompson (upper body) is out.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two points including GWG

    Peterka scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Wild.

    The 21-year-old sprung Jeff Skinner for a breakaway goal in the final minute of the second period to give the Sabres a 2-1 lead, then Peterka potted the eventual game-winner early in the third as he tapped home a slick feed from the behind the net by Tage Thompson. Peterka produced a solid 12 goals and 32 points in 77 games as a rookie last season, but the 2020 second-round pick appears headed for a breakout 2023-24 campaign with six goals -- including two game winners -- and 10 points in 14 contests.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Five-game, six-point streak

    Peterka had a goal and an assist Saturday in a 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Peterka scored a power-play goal in the first period on a shot from the top of the left circle. He's riding a five-game, six-point streak (three goals, three assists). Peterka is looking to build on a 32-point rookie campaign. He already has five goals in 12 games. Last season, he put up 12 in 77 contests.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Nabs helper Friday

    Peterka managed an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Flyers.

    Peterka extended his point streak to four games (two goals, two assists), and he's added 10 shots on net in that span. The winger is getting a top-line look at even strength since Alex Tuch started the season slow alongside Tage Thompson. Peterka is up to six points, 24 shots and a plus-1 rating through 11 contests, offering some upside in scoring-only fantasy formats.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Lights lamp in loss

    Peterka scored a goal in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Devils.

    Peterka snapped a three-game drought with his first-period tally. The 21-year-old winger has struggled to find consistency while playing on the third line this season, but he's managed to pot three goals through eight contests. He's also picked up 15 shots on net, two PIM and an even plus-minus rating. Peterka doesn't play an overly physical game, so he'll have to score to get on the fantasy radar in redraft formats.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Tallies lone Sabres goal

    Peterka scored a goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Peterka was responsible for all of Buffalo's offense in the loss, following up a blocked shot with a wrister that got by Igor Shesterkin and cutting the Sabres' deficit to 3-1 in the second period. The 22-year-old Peterka had 12 goals and 32 points in his first full NHL campaign last year. He's in line for a top-six role to open the 2023-24 season, skating on the Sabres' second line with Dylan Cozens and Victor Olofsson.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scores Monday

    Peterka tallied a power-play goal in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Canadiens.

    Peterka tied the game 2-2 with a power-play marker in the second period, beating Jake Allen from a sharp angle. The 21-year-old Peterka has been productive of late, recording nine points (two goals, seven assists) in his last nine games. The German forward is up to 10 goals and 30 points through 68 contests this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two helpers Friday

    Peterka collected two assists in Friday's 5-4 win over the Devils.

    Both helpers came in the first period as the Sabres jumped out to a 3-1 lead before the 11-minute mark and chased Akira Schmid from the game. Peterka has three multi-point performances in his last seven games, and the 21-year-old has been clicking on a kid line with the 22-year-old Dylan Cozens and the 21-year-old Jack Quinn. Despite his meager totals on the season (nine goals and 29 points through 66 games), Peterka could provide fantasy rosters with a late boost for the stretch run.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scratched Friday

    Peterka is a healthy scratch Friday against the Flyers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Peterka has five points over his last four games and it's a bit surprising that he's being scratched. Victor Olofsson will skate on the second line in his absence. It's unclear if Peterka will be back in the lineup Sunday against Boston.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two assists in win

    Peterka logged a pair of helpers in Monday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Peterka set up Jack Quinn's tally in the second period before assisting Dylan Cozens in the third. Peterka now has four assists over his last three games, though he's tallied just one goal in his last 33 contests. The 21-year-old rookie has eight goals and 17 assists through 62 games this season. While his production has been inconsistent, Peterka is worth monitoring while playing alongside Dylan Cozens and Jack Quinn on Buffalo's second line.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two-point effort in loss

    Peterka recorded two assists in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Stars.

    The 21-year-old gets overlooked among all the other gifted young forwards on the Sabres' roster, but Peterka has some offensive talent of his own. A second-round pick in 2020, he has a goal and four points in his last five games for Buffalo while skating in a middle-six role and seeing second-unit power-play time, and he's up to 23 points (eight goals and 15 helpers) through 60 games in his first full NHL season.
