He probably will not play before the Christmas break, so that's three games he'll miss at least. Mitchell blocked a shot against Ottawa on Monday that forced him out of the game.

Dec 16 - 8:20 AM

Torrey Mitchell has recorded two goals in his past four games.

He scored the game-winning goal for Buffalo last Saturday versus Washington. "It's nice to have some success right now and finding my role," Mitchell said Monday. "Confidence is everything in this league. That's no secret. You get some wins under your belt and you start feeling good about yourself. It makes a big difference just showing up to the rink on a practice day." He's averaging 14:29 of ice time per contest, which is the highest of his career. Mitchell has three goals and four points in 21 matches, but it still could be a career year for him from a goal point-of-view if his current pace continues. While that's great for him, Mitchell isn't worthy of having a spot on your fantasy roster.

Torrey Mitchell is skating on Buffalo's first line against Edmonton on Friday.

Mitchell is playing on a line with Tyler Ennis and Chris Stewart. Mitchell doesn't bring much offense to the table, but he may get a slight boost if he continues to play on that line. You can continue to ignore him in standard leagues.

In nine games with the Sabres, nearly 19 percent of his ice time was spent shorthanded and the team was good over that span with a 26-for-29 success rate. Despite the small sample size, Mitchell ended up first on the team with 2:57 of penalty kill time per game. He scored his first point with Buffalo in the team's regular season finale after he was promoted to a line with Cody Hodgson and Zemgus Girgensons.
