Jets' Stafford Still Day-To-Day

News: Drew Stafford (upper body) missed Wednesday's practice, but is still considered day-to-day, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Paul Maurice intimated that it was still possible Drew Stafford could resume skating Thursday morning, which he would need to do in order to receive clearance to play later that evening against the Capitals. If Stafford fails to skate Thursday, the Jets could choose to rule him out entirely for the team's two-game road swing to Washington and Toronto.

Jets' Stafford Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Drew Stafford will not return to Monday's game against the Jets after suffering an upper-body injury in the third period.
Analysis: With his upper-body injury, Drew Stafford should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game against the Capitals. The two days away from game competition should bode well for the 29-year-old, although his availability for Thursday can only be certain upon official announcement from the Jets.

Jets' Stafford Snipes Only Goal In Shootout

News: Drew Stafford scored the only shootout goal to deliver the Jets a 5-4 shootout win over the Red Wings. He also scored in regulation.
Analysis: He fired a wrister in the shootout that Jimmy Howard probably should have had, but a goal is an goal and a win is a win. He could struggle if the Jets try to roll him consistently in their top six, but he can help in their top nine.

Jets' Stafford Expected To Play Thursday

News: Drew Stafford is expected to make his Jets debut Thursday against the Predators, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 reports.
Analysis: Both Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers are expected to join the team in Nashville later Wednesday and meet with coach Paul Maurice. It's not apparent which line Stafford will skate on for his team debut, but that should be clarified when the Jets conduct their morning skate Thursday.

Jets Acquire Stafford In Massive Trade

News: Drew Stafford was one of four players acquired by the Jets in Wednesday's blockbuster deal that shipped Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian to Buffalo, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Drew Stafford has skated on either Buffalo's second or third line for most of the season, accumulating nine goals, 15 assists, and a minus-18 rating over 50 games. While Stafford should notice improvement in the latter category with the move to a more competitive Jets squad, he's unlikely to ascend to a top-six role with his new squad. Instead, Stafford figures to displace Chris Thorburn on the third trio, where he's expected to see a reduction in the 15:59 of ice time he had averaged with the Sabres this season. Even with an expected decline in minutes, Stafford could maintain his current scoring pace, as he'll likely draw more favorable matchups with his new club.

Stafford Pots Goal In Sabres' Win

News: Drew Stafford netted his eighth goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: The 29-year-old has fared respectably in a depth role this season for the Sabres, but his half-point-per-game production coupled with a minus-19 rating likely isn't enough to entice those outside of deep leagues to scoop him up.

News: Drew Stafford (personal) was activated to the playing roster prior to Friday's game against the and is expected to join the lineup, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Drew Stafford left the team Tuesday to join his wife for the birth of their child, but has made it back Friday. His activation indicates he should be in the lineup despite having limited on-ice work the past couple days. The team reassigned Tim Schaller on Friday to open up the roster spot.

Sabres' Stafford Joins Team In Tampa

News: Drew Stafford (paternity) arrived in Tampa in advance of Friday's game, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: Travel issues prevented Drew Stafford from joining the team in Carolina a day earlier, but he had no such problems meeting up with the Sabres on Friday. Despite his limited on-ice work the last couple of days, Stafford is expected to play, though coach Ted Nolan hasn't decided on his forward lines just yet.

Sabres' Stafford Attempting To Meet Team In Tampa

News: Drew Stafford (personal) plans to meet the team in Tampa in time for Friday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: After leaving the team earlier in the week to witness the birth of his child, Drew Stafford was expected to play Thursday in Carolina. However, with no flights set to arrive in Raleigh quickly enough, Stafford had to cancel and will now hop a plane to Tampa. Assuming he has better luck on the traveling front this time around, he'll likely slot back into the Buffalo lineup.

Sabres' Stafford Now Looks To Be Out Thursday

News: It now appears that Drew Stafford will miss Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, as he wasn't on the ice for pregame warmups.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan indicated earlier in the day that Drew Stafford was en route to Carolina to join the team two days after the birth of his child, but he evidently hit a snag in his travel plans. Fortunately, the Sabres already had 12 healthy forwards at its disposal, so there will be no need to play shorthanded.

Sabres' Stafford Set To Play Thursday

News: Coach Ted Nolan said Drew Stafford (personal) is en route to joining the team in Carolina and will play Thursday against the Hurricanes, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The new father missed Tuesday's game against the Devils, but after taking the last day to spend time with his first child, it appears he's on track to play. Nolan wouldn't say who would come out of lineup to make room for Drew Stafford, but look for the winger to slot in on the club's second or third line.

Sabres' Stafford Expected Back Thursday

News: Drew Stafford (personal) is expected to return to action Thursday against the Hurricanes, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: Drew Stafford was a late scratch for Tuesday's contest following the birth of his child, but after taking the time to meet the newest member of his family, he'll soon rejoin the Sabres. The winger has six goals, 20 points and a minus-16 rating over 37 games this season, production that isn't strong enough to warrant a look in most formats.

Sabres' Stafford (Personal) Out Tuesday

News: Drew Stafford (personal) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Devils, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The winger returned to Buffalo to witness the birth of his child, but he could rejoin the team in time for Thursday's game in Carolina. The Sabres could be without Cody McCormick (lower body) on Tuesday as well, and if that's the case, the team would have to get by with a lineup of 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

Sabres' Stafford Nabs Two Points

News: Drew Stafford chipped with two third-period helpers in Saturday's victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: Drew Stafford also spent two minutes in the penalty box during the third period, which ending up proving fortuitous when Zemgus Girgensons was able to find the net for a shorthanded goal. The two-point outing helped Stafford tie Girgensons for second on the team in scoring this season with 19 points.

Sabres' Stafford Riding Four-Game Point Streak

News: Drew Stafford has a point in each of his four games since returning from a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Drew Stafford has accrued a goal, three assists and seven shot attempts during that span. His rating remains something of a drain at minus-9 for the season, but the Sabres' winning ways of late nonetheless have his fantasy value on the upswing.

Sabres' Stafford To Return Saturday

News: Drew Stafford (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: Drew Stafford sat out the previous three games with the lower-body ailment, but he's looked good in practice the last couple of days to pave the way for his return. He skated on the third line with Cody Hodgson and Marcus Foligno at Friday's practice.

Sabres' Stafford Will Not Play Thursday

News: Updating a previous report, Drew Stafford (lower body) will not play Thursday against the Lightning, WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: It looked like the Sabres' decision to send Tim Schaller back to the minors would open the door for Drew Stafford's return Thursday, but instead, Cody McCormick (concussion) will rejoin the lineup. That being said, Stafford appears to be progressing well, and could be an option for Saturday's game at Florida.
