Johan Larsson feels comfortable with Buffalo's new coaching staff and he's hoping to stay on the big club's roster.
He contributed five goals and 13 points in the final 17 games of the 2014-15 campaign after he was promoted to a top-six role. Larsson wouldn't be playing with Matt Moulson or Tyler Ennis if he stuck with the Sabres, but that opportunity has done wonders for his confidence and he has impressed coach Dan Bylsma at training camp.

"This has been a process but now the Sabres are clear they want to have Johan on the team," said his agent Lars Cederstrom. "Johan has great potential to grow even more next season, so we believe he will have an even better position for negotiations in a year."

Johan Larsson notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 win against Carolina.

Johan Larsson generated three points in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto.

He finished the match with a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating after he was promoted to the top line between Tyler Ennis and Matt Moulson. Ennis and Moulson equaled Larsson's point total with a goal and two helpers as well. Larsson is playing on his third call-up with the Sabres this year and this is the first one where he's received time in the top-six forward group.
Mar 12 - 8:44 AM

Johan Larsson skated on the top line at practice on Monday.

He was flanked by Matt Moulson and Tyler Ennis, which bumped Phil Varone to the second unit between Marcus Foligno and Brian Gionta. He has collected four points in 23 games with the Sabres this season, but this is a good opportunity for him.
Mar 10 - 9:36 AM

Johan Larsson scored the lone goal for Buffalo in a 6-1 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

Larsson scored his second career goal 2:35 into the game, but that was pretty much all the offense the Sabres mustered in this one. The 22-year-old winger has four points in 23 games this season, and is far way from being fantasy relevant. Marcus Foligno and Zach Bogosian got the assists.
Mar 7 - 9:41 PM

Johan Larsson has been dropped to the third line.

Mikhail Grigorenko will move onto the second line in his place. Larsson skated with Cody Hodgson and Nicolas Deslauriers during Thursday's practice.

Feb 15 - 4:32 PM

The Buffalo Sabres assigned Johan Larsson to the minors.

The 22-year-old had a goal and an assist in 12 games with the Sabres this season. He does have some upside and he should be part of the Sabres' future.
Jan 4 - 6:45 PM

Johan Larsson potted the lone goal for Buffalo in its 5-1 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Larsson scored at 13:27 of the third period to cut the Avalanche lead to 4-1, so it didn’t mean much in the grand scheme, but it did to him as it was his first career NHL goal. Larsson was called up to replace Matt Moulson, who is out sick, and it didn't appear he'd make it in time for the game. The 22-year-old has five points in 34 career NHL games. Chris Stewart and Andre Benoit had the assists.

Johan Larsson has been recalled back up to Buffalo to replace Matt Moulson who is out sick.

In 28 games for the Rochester Americans, Larsson has eight goals and 23 points with 30 PIMs. Pretty darn good for the 22 year old center.
