Zemgus Girgensons is battling an illness and will be a game-time tonight against the Boston Bruins.

Zemgus Girgensons has two goals in two games after getting his third marker of the season on Wednesday night.

Girgensons has only contributed six points in 32 games and this is just the second time he has earned points in two straight matches this year. However, he still shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

Girgensons has two goals and five points in 31 contests this season. He set a career-low in 2016-17 with 16 points, but unfortunately there's a good chance he'll end up below that mark this time around.

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.

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.

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.
