The 25-year-old is also sporting an average ice time of 3:14 on the man advantage, giving him plenty of chances to reward fantasy owners participating in leagues that count power-play bonuses.

News: Willie Mitchell (upper body) plans to return to action Thursday against the Stars, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Analysis: Willie Mitchell, who last suited up on Feb. 3, has thus been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Maple Leafs.

News: Anders Lindback is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports. Analysis: In the wake of Monday's trade that sent Michal Neuvirth to the Islanders, Anders Lindback is now in line to work in tandem with newcomer Chad Johnson, though playing behind a rebuilding Sabres' squad, neither of the goalies represent reliable fantasy options at this time.
News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Sabres, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports. Analysis: Ben Bishop, who allowed four goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers, will look to bounce back Tuesday against a re-tooling Buffalo squad that traded forwards Chris Stewart, Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn, as well as goalie Michal Neuvirth on Monday.
News: Roberto Luongo is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

News: Karri Ramo will be the starting goalie for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. Analysis: Karri Ramo has allowed only a goal a game the last three contests and is on a major roll, despite losing his last start.

News: The Sabres recalled Jerry D'Amigo from AHL Rochester on Tuesday, the team's official site reports. Analysis: Jerry D'Amigo, who has recorded 26 points in 59 AHL games this season, bolsters the Sabres' depth up front, along with fellow recalls Tim Schaller and Mikhail Grigorenko in the wake of the team having dealt the forward trio of Chris Stewart, Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn on Monday. D'Amigo is expected to be used in a scoring role, and although he's not particularly big, is very strong for his 5-foot-11 frame. In 22 career NHL games, D'Amigo has a goal and three points. His fantasy value is very limited on a weak Buffalo squad.
