Top Jacob Bryson News

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Two helpers Tuesday

    Bryson picked up two assists while adding two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-4 rating in Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Kings.

    The 26-year-old blueliner collected his first points in six NHL games this season, getting a regular shift with Owen Power (hand) sidelined. Bryson hasn't shown much offensive upside as a pro -- his best season in the AHL came in 2019-20, when he scored four goals and 27 points in 61 games for Rochester -- and he's unlikely to make much fantasy impact even in an expanded role.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Recalled from AHL

    Bryson was summoned from AHL Rochester on Monday.

    Bryson will accompany the Sabres on the team's upcoming three-game road trip in California. He will probably continue to serve as an extra defender unless injuries occur.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Assigned to minors

    Bryson was sent to AHL Rochester on Saturday.

    Bryson, who has played in only three games this season, hasn't been in the lineup since Nov. 4 against Toronto. If he stays in the minors for a bit, he should get some much-needed playing time. Bryson had nine points, 27 shots on goal, 69 blocked shots and 34 hits in 59 appearances with the Sabres during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Summoned from AHL

    Bryson was called up from AHL Rochester on Thursday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Bryson has an assist in nine games with Rochester this season. In three games with Buffalo, he has no points, a minus-1 rating, two hits and six blocks.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Designated for waivers

    Bryson was waived by the Sabres on Monday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Bryson's waiving comes after the blueliner served as a healthy scratch for the last 20 games. With Jack Quinn (Achilles) expected to return soon, waiving Bryson will provide Buffalo with the necessary roster opening. Bryson should see significantly more minutes with AHL Rochester if he clears waivers.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Serving depth role

    Bryson has been a healthy scratch for the first two games of the 2023-24 season.

    In 59 games last season, Bryson chipped in one goal, eight assists, 69 blocked shots and 34 hits. However, he has begun the 2023-24 campaign as Buffalo's seventh defenseman. Barring injuries, the 25-year-old defender could be sitting in the press box for a while.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Snags helper Monday

    Bryson registered an assist in Monday's 3-2 defeat to Edmonton.

    Bryson finally ended his 26-game pointless streak that stretched back to Dec. 7 versus Columbus. Still, if the 25-year-old blueliner can pick up at least one more point this season, he'll match his career best of 10 set last season. GIven his lack of offensive upside, Bryson shouldn't be expected to offer more than low-end fantasy value moving forward.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Lands on IR

    Bryson (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly.

    It was already announced that Bryson was considered week-to-week, so his IR designation won't affect his return timeline. The 25-year-old blueliner will be out of action until at least early December. Prior to picking up the injury, Bryson was held scoreless in six straight games.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Not practicing Friday

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Chips in with two helpers

    Bryson recorded a pair of assists, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Flames.

    Bryson picked up his first two points of the year in this contest, though he also struggled a bit in his own zone. The 24-year-old has held down a spot on the third pairing, and that should continue in the near term with Ilya Lyubushkin (lower body) and Henri Jokiharju (face) battling injuries. Bryson has added four blocked shots, a minus-3 rating, two PIM and two hits in four games.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Inks two-year deal

    Bryson signed a two-year, $1.85 million AAV extension with Buffalo on Sunday.

    Bryson averaged 18:21 of ice time with 10 points in 73 games last season. The 24-year-old will likely skate in a bottom-four role with Buffalo again next season. He's tallied 19 points in 111 career NHL games after he was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

  • Sabres' Jacob Bryson: Provides even-strength apple

    Bryson supplied an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Islanders.

    Bryson's helper took place at even strength and ended up being clutch in this tightly contested matchup. Nonetheless, his power-play role has shrunk precipitously as the season comes to a close, which is a bit of a letdown considering seven of his 10 points this season have been tallied on the man advantage.
