Josh Gorges has an upper body injury.

The rugged defender didn't play in the final quarter of Friday's match with Boston, and now we know why. In 44 games this season, Gorges has 48 PIMs, 78 hits, and 98 blocks.
Jan 16 - 6:42 PM

Josh Gorges missed Sunday's practice as he was sent home with the flu.

"He had the flu," Bylsma said of Gorges. "He was coming down with the flu yesterday, made it through the game yesterday and just under the weather. Didn’t want him around the guys." Which begs the question why he played Saturday against Chicago at all. In any event, the Sabres don't play again until next Saturday, Dec. 26th. Through 34 games thus far the rugged defender has six points, 40 PIMs, 63 hits, and 68 blocks.

Josh Gorges is quietly having a solid season.

Gorges has seen significant improvements this season in terms of Corsi. He also has a minus-two rating, which is a big change from his 2014-15 campaign when he was minus-28 in 46 contests. "I feel good coming off all the different situations last year, taking the summer to come in with a fresh mindset," Gorges said. "I feel healthy and that’s a good thing. Being around these guys with their energy and excitement has been a lot of fun so far. We’ve got a long ways to go but it’s been fun." It's all good news for Buffalo, but it doesn't change much for standard league fantasy owners. Gorges just doesn't do enough offensively to be relevant in those circles.
