Seth Griffith skated alongside Jack Eichel and Evander Kane during Sunday's practice.

Griffith appears to have earned a job with the Sabres for the start of the 2017-18 campaign. "His attitude is infectious," Housley said. "He's got to play like he has been the last two games. He has to be up in the forecheck. I know he's a smaller guy but he finds way to get pucks and win puck battles." Jason Pominville had been skating on the top line, but he was moved to the third unit alongside Sam Reinhart on Sunday.

Seth Griffith skated alongside Ryan O'Reilly and Benoit Pouliot at Thursday's practice.

"I'm not looking too much into it, but if I get the chance to play with them it'd be great," said Griffith. "Hopefully, I can show them what I have." He has contributed one goal and one assist in two preseason matches, while skating as a bottom-six forward. He has just 58 games of NHL experience in his career, but he appears to be working himself into the mix for a roster spot on the Sabres.
Sep 22 - 7:43 AM

Seth Griffith has signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with Buffalo.

This is a depth signing for the Sabres. Griffith registered five points in 24 NHL games in Toronto and Florida in 2016-17. We doubt he will do much to make him a fantasy asset next season.
Jul 1 - 2:10 PM

Seth Griffith has been sent to the AHL by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Toronto just claimed Griffith off waivers. The only way Griffith would be eligible to be sent to the minors immediately after being claimed is if Toronto was the only team to put in a waiver claim. The Maple Leafs previously employed Griffith this season, so they're entitled to send him to the AHL without putting him on waivers yet again under these circumstances.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have claimed Seth Griffith off waivers.

Griffith has been well traveled this season. He was waived by Boston on Oct. 10 and was claimed by Toronto. However, the Leafs placed him on waivers a month later and Florida picked him up. The Panthers put him on waivers yet again on Thursday so now he's going back to Toronto. Throughout that he has five assists in 24 games this season. He is heading to the minors.
Jan 20 - 12:06 PM

Seth Griffith has been put on waivers by the Florida Panthers.

Griffith has five assists in 24 games with Toronto and Florida this season. The Panthers are the third team to expose him to waivers after the Maple Leafs and Bruins.
Jan 19 - 12:54 PM

Seth Griffith will sit out Wednesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Griffith was scratched against the Flames the last game and has only dressed once since a three game absence with a concussion. He has five assists in 25 games split among the Panthers, Leafs and Bruins. Jakub Kindl and Denis Malgin will also be scratched.
Jan 18 - 9:17 PM

Seth Griffith (concussion) has been activated off the injured reserve list.

Griffith is projected to play alongside Vincent Trocheck and Jaromir Jagr on Friday. Meanwhile Denis Malgin will be a healthy scratch. Griffith has five assists in 20 games this season.
Jan 13 - 4:45 PM

Seth Griffith (concussion) may be available to return within a week.

He was hurt last Wednesday versus Winnipeg and has missed the last two games with a concussion.
Jan 9 - 10:30 AM

The Florida Panthers placed Seth Griffith on I/R on Thursday with a concussion.

The Panthers have not yet alluded to any type of timeline for Griffith's recovery, which is about as upsetting a report as there is. Concussions are always unique experiences, so expect the team to give him the time he needs.
Jan 6 - 6:45 PM

Seth Griffith sustained a concussion Wednesday night, according to interim coach Tom Rowe.

He left the game in the first period after a hit from Winnipeg's Nikolaj Ehlers. "It was a dirty hit, but Ehlers, he deliberately did it," Rowe said of the play that looked like interference. "I don't care what anyone says. I saw it on video; it's a dirty hit." Consider Griffith day-to-day for now.
Jan 5 - 8:46 AM

Seth Griffith played very well on the Panthers' top line Saturday night.

Griffith seems to mesh very well with Aleksander Barkov and Jaromir Jagr in the Cats' 4-2 win over Vancouver. Griffith registered an assist and was the game's third star. Interim Florida coach Tom Rowe thought Griffith played a great game and seems content to leave him on the first unit for now. If Griffith is available in your deep pool, you may consider picking him up.

Seth Griffith skate on the Panthers' top line during Friday's practice.

It looks like he's going to get an opportunity to play with Aleksander Barkov and Jaromir Jagr. Reilly Smith, who was on that line during the last few games, was moved back to the second line with Vincent Trocheck and Jussi Jokinen. This is a great opportunity for Griffith to prove himself, as he has just one assist in 12 games this season.
