Moulson Signs With Sabres

News: The Sabres have signed Matt Moulson (lower body) to a five-year, $25 million deal, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The 30-year-old Matt Moulson returns to Buffalo after a subpar stint with Minnesota for the playoffs. General manager Tim Murray wasn't lying when he said he wasn't worried about reaching the cap floor with this deal. Moulson scored just 23 goals last year, including 11 in 44 games with the Sabres, and only one in 10 playoff games -- not quite enough production to justify his $5 million price tag. It's possible other teams offered Moulson less money and fewer years. Regardless, Moulson will again be a top scoring option for a Sabres team that's in the midst of a rebuild.

Wild's Moulson: Oblique/Groin Injuries

News: Matt Moulson had oblique and groin injuries that limited his skating ability down the stretch, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: The Wild's season is over, so Matt Moulson's injuries no longer have any fantasy significance, but it explains why he was limited in Minnesota's series against Chicago.

Wild's Moulson Nears Return

News: Coach Mike Yeo suggested that Matt Moulson (lower body) is nearing a return to action, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Yeo suggested that if the Wild are able to extend their series with Chicago to seven contests by taking Tuesday's Game 6, Matt Moulson could potentially suit up for Game 7 on Thursday.

Wild's Moulson (Back) Out Sunday

News: Matt Moulson (lower body) is out for Sunday's Game 5 playoff game against Chicago, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Moulson seems unlikely to play in the rest of the series due to the injury.

Wild's Moulson Set To Miss Game 4 With Injury

News: Matt Moulson is dealing with a lower-body injury and expected to miss Game 4, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Moulson's anemic performance over the first 10 postseason games may have had him destined for the press box for Game 4 anyway, but the injury might actually explain the drop in the forward's productivity. Coach Mike Yeo said Moulson would be off the ice for a couple days, with the hope it will allow him to heal up in time for Game 5, scheduled for Sunday.

Matt Moulson, LW, BUF Wild Likely To Scratch Moulson For Game 4

Matt Moulson

Wild Likely To Scratch Moulson For Game 4

News: It looks like Matt Moulson will be a healthy scratch for Friday's Game 4 against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Matt Cooke concluding his seven-game suspension Tuesday, the Wild unveiled new practice lines Thursday, with Matt Moulson not being included among the top 12 forwards. If those lines hold for Game 4, it would be a development unforeseen just two months ago, when the Wild acquired Moulson from the Sabres in won of the splashier moves at the trade deadline. While Moulson was productive in his final 20 regular season games with the Wild, he's disappeared in the playoffs, providing just a goal and two assists in 10 games.

Matt Moulson, LW, BUF Wild Drop Moulson To Third Line

Matt Moulson

Wild Drop Moulson To Third Line

News: Matt Moulson has been dropped to the third line for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Blackhawks, Tom Callahan of 102.5 The Game reports.
Analysis: After supplying just two points in the Wild's seven-game series with the Avalanche in the first round, Matt Moulson has continued his disappearing act against the Blackhawks, going scoreless through the first two games. He's seen less than 15 minutes of ice time in both contests, with his 13:34 TOI in Game 2 marking his lowest minute total of the postseason. The banishment to the third line will only further damage his fading fantasy value.

Wild's Moulson Grabs Assist In Finale

News: Matt Moulson had an assist in the Wild's regular-season finale against the Predators on Sunday.
Analysis: Matt Moulson finishes the season with 23 goals and 28 assists, including six goals and seven assists through 20 games with the Wild.

Wild's Moulson Tallies Two Points

News: Matt Moulson scored the game-winning goal and added an assist against the Red Wings on Sunday.
Analysis: That's 21 goals and 46 points now for Matt Moulson. Also, he is up to a minus-3 on the year which, given that he's spent most of his time with the Islanders and Sabres this season, could still improve quite a bit.

Wild's Moulson Scores Twice In Return To NY

News: Matt Moulson had two goals, including the game-winner, and an assist in his return to Long Island on Tuesday.
Analysis: Matt Moulson rose to the occasion in his return. He's been traded twice since leaving New York, but there was no shortage of love for him as the crowd cheered both times he scored. He has three goals and two assists in his seven games since heading to Minnesota.

Matt Moulson

Wild's Moulson Pots Goal

News: Matt Moulson scored his first goal since being traded from Buffalo to Minnesota on Sunday against the Blues.
Analysis: Matt Moulson has a point in both of his games with the Wild, but he had four points in his last three games for Buffalo, so it has been a nice run for him.

Wild Acquire Moulson At Deadline

News: Matt Moulson was acquired from the Sabres along with Cody McCormick on Wednesday in exchange for Torrey Mitchell, a 2014 second-round draft pick and a 2016 second-round draft pick, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Sabres took up until shortly after the deadline to confirm the trade, but as expected all along, Matt Moulson will join a playoff contender in need of additional offensive punch. The 30-year-old totaled 17 goals and 21 assists over 55 games with the Islanders and Sabres this season and will hit free agency over the summer. He should immediately assume a top-six role for his new club while also seeing ample time on the power play. With higher-quality forwards surrounding him in Minnesota, it wouldn't be a surprise if Moulson noticed improved production following the trade.

Sabres' Moulson In Lineup Monday

News: Matt Moulson will play Monday against the Stars, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Matt Moulson is still expected to be traded before Wednesday's trade deadline, but it won't cost him Monday's game.

Sabres' Moulson Will Play Monday

News: Matt Moulson is expected to play Monday against Dallas, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Matt Moulson will play with Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford on the team's first line. It should be a pretty dangerous one against Dallas, with Moulson as the triggerman for Ennis, arguably the team's best player now, and Stafford, who has 11 points in 12 games in 2014. Moulson fueled trade speculation after missing an optional practice Monday. Though he's expected to be traded, it doesn't look like that will happen just yet.

Sabres' Moulson On The Move?

News: Matt Moulson was not present at Monday's morning skate, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Given the heavy trade talk that has surrounded Matt Moulson, this could signal that another deal is in the works for Buffalo. Moulson's owners should stay tuned for further developments on a possible trade. If that's not the case, there should be some other explanation for why he wasn't at morning skate. Moulson was linked to Ottawa a few days ago, perhaps as part of a package including Chris Stewart, but Stewart is expected to play Monday. Stay tuned.

Ottawa A Potential Destination For Sabres' Moulson

News: After acquiring Chris Stewart in a trade, the Sabres may package him with Matt Moulson to the Senators, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: Matt Moulson previously stated a willingness to stay in Buffalo, having been traded once already this year. However, general manager Tim Murray has the Sabres' future in mind, and will trade the scoring winger if the price is right. A package of Stewart and Moulson would surely bring in some valuable pieces, and the pair would have a chance to compete in the playoffs and play alongside quality centers in Jason Spezza and Kyle Turris. Stay tuned.

Moulson On Buffalo Board Again

News: Matt Moulson scored what became the game-winning goal in Friday's victory over San Jose, giving him at least a point in each of his last five games.
Analysis: It's good to be productive when you're in the league's shop window. Matt Moulson most likely will be traded on or before Wednesday's deadline. He's a player with a knack for scoring around the goal and can play alongside elite talent. He'll be an asset wherever he ends up, even if he stays in Buffalo.

Sabres' Moulson Picking Up Steam

News: With a goal against Boston on Thursday, Matt Moulson extended his point streak to four games.
Analysis: A break from NHL action for the league's worst team might just be what the doctor ordered, with the Sabres winning two straight games. Matt Moulson has five points - a goal and four assists - in his past four games as the trade deadline approaches. While Moulson has stated desire to stay in Buffalo, his recent hot streak increases his trade value, which makes him a valuable trade chip. Moulson and the Sabres face San Jose on Friday.

Moulson Growing Fond Of Sabres

News: Despite being an unrestricted free agent and valuable trade bait, Matt Moulson wouldn't mind staying in Buffalo, reports WGR 550 Sports Radio.
Analysis: Acquired from the Islanders for Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson was seen as a valuable trade piece for the re-building Sabres. He has just nine goals in 40 games this season, on pace for a career-low, but he is one of the Sabres' top forwards and gets regular playing time. The Cornell alum had a winding journey to the NHL, becoming a full-time regular with the Islanders as a 25-year-old after getting drafted by Pittsburgh and spending time with the Kings. The feeling is that, having moved once already this season, Moulson's preference is to stay with the team, but that won't be up to him. If traded, his offensive fantasy value will certainly increase.

Sabres' Moulson Set To Return Tuesday

News: Matt Moulson (upper body) will play Tuesday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Matt Moulson sat out all three of the Sabres' early February games, but it appears the Olympic break gave him plenty of time to get healthy. There have been whispers that Moulson will be dealt prior to the trade deadline, so besides the Sabres, potential suitors will be looking to see how he performs coming off the injury.

Sabres' Moulson A Trade Candidate

News: Matt Moulson (upper body) is likely to be dealt before the NHL's March 5 trade deadline, Chris Botta of the New York Times speculates.
Analysis: Botta suggests that more than a dozen teams have shown interest in Matt Moulson, although the injured winger is not expected to return until after the Olympic break. Moulson has tallied 15 goals and 18 assists in 51 games so far this season.

Sabres' Moulson To Return After Olympic Break

News: Matt Moulson (upper body) will return after the Olympic Break, WGR 550 in Buffalo reports.
Analysis: Head coach Ted Nolan made the announcement during an interview Tuesday morning. It was already known that Matt Moulson would not play before the NHL breaks during the Olympics in Sochi, but his return date hadn't been specified previously.

Sabres' Moulson Headed To IR

News: The Sabres placed Matt Moulson (upper body) on IR on Monday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Matt Moulson was already expected to be out through the Olympic break, so his placement on IR comes as no surprise. The team also activated Drew Stafford off IR Monday, so Moulson's roster spot will help them avoid having to send a player down to the AHL. Moulson has 15 goals and 18 assists in 51 games on the year.

Sabres' Moulson Out Through Olympic Break

News: Matt Moulson is dealing with an upper-body injury and will likely be out through the Olympic Break.
Analysis: Matt Moulson left Thursday's game against the Coyotes after taking a hard hit from Shane Doan that rattled a good part of his whole body. Between the Islanders and the Sabres this season, Moulson has 15 goals and 18 assists in 40 games. The targeted return date will give him just short of a month to recover and rest.

Sabres' Moulson Suffers Injury

News: Matt Moulson left Thursday's game in the third period after taking a hard hit from Phoenix captain Shane Doan, the Olean Times Herald reports. "Doctors are looking at him," said Sabres coach Ted Nolan. "Cross your fingers, hope that it's good. He got hit wrist. He got hit body. He got whacked pretty good. So we'll see how it is in an hour or so."
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan wasn't able to provide many details but did indicate that the Sabres should know more by Friday morning. With 15 goals and 18 assists through 51 games, Matt Moulson has been one of the few bright spots on a dreadful Buffalo squad this season. The Sabres are off Friday, before facing the Avalanche on Saturday.
