Phil Varone amassed two goals and two assists in Ottawa's 6-3 win over Toronto in preseason action on Monday night.
He inked a one-year contract with the Senators in the summer after he finished the 2015-16 campaign with Ottawa. Varone wasn't able to stick with the Sabres four-plus years with the organization. He is hoping to land a spot with the Senators this season, but it wouldn't be surprising if he spent most of the year in the minors. Sep 27 - 10:53 AM

The Ottawa Senators have re-signed Phil Varone to a one-year/$700,000 contract.

Varone was dealt to the Senators from Buffalo after picking up a goal and two points in five games for the Sabres. He will likely see bottom-six minutes and should not be drafted or thought of at this time.
Jul 1 - 1:47 PM

Phil Varone was recalled from Binghamton of the AHL on Friday.

He will suit up for the Sens against the Bruins in Saturday afternoon's season finale. Varone registered 19 points in 18 games in the AHL this season and had a goal and an assist in five games with the Sabres. Varone will play on the Sens' fourth line with Chris Neil and Buddy Robinson and has no fantasy value at the moment.
Apr 9 - 10:50 AM

Phil Varone,Jason Akeson and Jerome Leduc were sent to Ottawa for Alex Guptil, Eric O’Dell, Cole Schneider, and Michael Sdao.

Unfortunately there's no fantasy value to speak of here. Varone has posted another quality season down on the farm in Rochester with 12 goals and 29 points in 43 games. But he's got just nine points in 42 career NHL games, indicating his skills have yet to translate.
Feb 27 - 9:54 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have assigned Phil Varone to the minors.

The 25-year-old had one assist in one game during his recent stint with the Sabres. He won't have any fantasy value going forward.
Feb 13 - 6:00 PM

Phil Varone has been summoned by the Buffalo Sabres.

Varone has 12 goals and 26 points in 38 AHL contests this season. He's been called up because Daniel Catenacci is out with a possible concussion.
Feb 12 - 5:25 PM

Phil Varone has been assigned to Rochester of the AHL.

He has chipped in one goal in four NHL outings this campaign, while picking up 19 points over 33 matches in the minors.
Jan 27 - 1:39 PM

Phil Varone and Carlo Colaiacovo will each be scratched against the Senators on Tuesday night.

Through 41 career NHL games, the 25-year-old Varone has just eight points, 16 PIMs, 20 blocks, and 40 hits. Not much value there, unfortunately.
Jan 26 - 7:27 PM

Phil Varone netted a goal in his NHL season debut on Saturday.

Varone had 10 goals and 19 points in 33 AHL contests in 2015-16 going into Saturday's contest. Although his goal came midway through the first period, he still ended up only getting 8:01 minutes of ice time. He was helping fill the void left by Zemgus Girgensons, who is dealing with an upper-body injury and is day-to-day, so it's possible that Varone will be sent back to the minors soon despite scoring a goal if Girgensons is available on Monday.
Jan 17 - 9:49 AM

Phil Varone was called up from the minors on Saturday January 16.

It was a great seasonal debut for Varone as he opened the scoring in a 4-1 Buffalo win. The forward had five points in 28 games last season with Buffalo and it certainly off to a nice start in 2015-16.
Jan 17 - 3:22 AM

Phil Varone has signed a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

Varone had three goals and five points in 28 games with the Sabres in 2014-15. He had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 27, but that's obviously not needed now.
Mon, Jul 13, 2015 04:50:00 PM

Buffalo Sabres RFA forward Phil Varone filed for salary arbitration on Friday.

Since being drafted 147th overall in 2009, Varone has seen just 37 games worth of NHL action. Also, his Entry Level Contract just ran out where he was hitting the cap at $586.6K while up with the Sabres, and making $62.5K while playing with AHL Rochester where he scored 15 goals and 44 points in 55 games. It's fair to expect a modest raise for the 24-year-old.

Phil Varone had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday.

Varone got some playing time with Matt Moulson and Tyler Ennis. He's worth keeping an eye on as long as that's the case, although it's hard to recommend any forward on the offensively anemic Sabres. Varone has three goals and four points in 11 contests this season.

Phil Varone got to center Buffalo's top line on Tuesday night.

With Zemgus Girgensons injured, Varone played between Tyler Ennis and Matt Moulson. He's expected to be with the team for the remainder of the season after the Sabres opened up roster spots at the trade deadline. He has two goals in 10 games this season with Buffalo.
