Zemgus Girgensons will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday night when the Buffalo Sabres visit the Colorado Avalanche.

Girgensons has one goal and three points in 24 games this season with the Sabres. The 14th overall pick of the 2012 NHL draft has been disappointing production-wise for Buffalo, with just 38 goals in over 300 NHL games. His fantasy value is virtually non-existent.

Zemgus Girgensons (lower body) will play against the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

The injury ended up costing Girgensons three games. He has one goal, two assists and a plus-2 rating in seven games this season. He doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

Zemgus Girgensons found the back of the net in Buffalo's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday.

It was Girgensons' first goal of the 2017-18 campaign. He had seven goals and 16 points in 75 contests in 2016-17 and probably won't be a significant offensive contributor this season either.
Oct 15 - 4:41 AM

Zemgus Girgensons skated alongside Jack Eichel and Jason Pominville during Wednesday's practice.

Evander Kane, who has enjoyed a great start to the year, moved to a line with Ryan O'Reilly and Kyle Okposo during the session, while Sam Reinhart shifted back to the wing alongside Johan Larsson and Benoit Pouliot.

Zemgus Girgensons appears to be getting a chance to step back into the offensive picture for the Sabres.

He is skating at left wing alongside Ryan O'Reilly and Kyle Okposo at training camp. "I'm seeing some great things out there," coach Phil Housley said. "I like what I've seen from that line. They've really set the bar. They're doing everything right in the practices." Evander Kane is the top left winger on Buffalo, but after him there isn't much depth with Benoit Pouliot, Matt Moulson, Seth Griffith and C.J. Smith. Girgensons has a legitimate shot to stay with O'Reilly and Okposo even though he has struggled mightily to produce over the last two seasons.
Sep 18 - 10:20 AM

The Buffalo Sabres have signed Zemgus Girgensons to a two-year deal worth $3.2 million total.

That works out to an annual average value of $1.6 million per year. The 23-year-old had a difficult season in 2016-17, as he scored just seven goals and nine assists in 75 games. Don't expect him to have any fantasy value going into next season.
Aug 17 - 5:32 PM

Zemgus Girgensons scored his first goal since Jan. 24 during Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.

He has generated just seven markers and 16 points through 71 games this season.

Girgensons was finally able to put the game to bed after a lengthy shootout that saw five total goals and another 15 combined saves. Ryan O'Reilly scored the only goal for the Sabres during regulation, his 17th of the year. Girgensons has 14 points in 65 games and doesn't own any fantasy upside.
Mar 18 - 1:00 AM

Zemgus Girgensons (middle body) will make his return to the Sabres lineup on Saturday night.

He'll suit up against the Colorado Avalanche after missing his team's last seven games. Thankfully, the Sabres bye came at the perfect time. "It definitely fell in a good place for me," Girgensons said of the bye. "Just to get a couple more days to heal it completely and get a good skate today, so I'll be 100 percent to go (on Saturday)." Girgensons will skate on a line with Brian Gionta and Marcus Foligno. He has six goals and seven assists in 53 games this season.
Feb 25 - 11:20 AM

Zemgus Girgensons (middle body) has skated on his own for the last two days.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Girgensons is dealing with an "internal middle-body" injury. He hasn't played since Feb. 7.
Feb 17 - 8:48 AM

Coach Dan Bylsma noted that Zemgus Girgensons is "more than day-to-day" with a middle body injury.

Which then slates him as week-to-week. Buffalo plays just nine more times through the end of the month. Through 53 games this season he has posted 13 points along with 79 hits.
