Sabres' Bogosian Gathers Two Assists In Win

News: Zach Bogosian picked up two assists in Monday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: With an average of 26:48 of ice time since joining the Sabres in February, Zach Bogosian is clearly the team's top defenseman. Even so, it hasn't translated to much fantasy utility outside of formats than value hits and PIM, as Bogosian has delivered no goals and six assists in his 19 games with Buffalo. We've been waiting for the production to match his pedigree for a while now, but that's unlikely to be realized until the Sabres turn into a far more competitive squad.

Sabres' Bogosian Set To Return

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) is slated to play Thursday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian, who has missed the last six games with a lower-body injury, checks back into the Sabres' lineup with four helpers and 30 PIM in 12 games since joining the team in a trade with the Jets.

Sabres' Bogosian

News: Zach Bogosian has sat out the past six games with a lower-body injury but "will likely return" Thursday night against Arizona, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian returns for a much-anticipated game between two of the league's worst teams, with the ultimate prize being Connor McDavid in the upcoming NHL draft. Bogosian has been a stalwart for the Sabres since coming over from Winnipeg via trade and is expected to continue where he left off as the team's biggest minutes eater. If Bogosian dresses, the odd-man out is likely to be Nikita Zadorov, who didn't have a strong game Saturday against Nashville. Bogosian will offer some peripherals and is the undisputed No. 1 defenseman for Buffalo and is a medium-risk, medium-upside play Thursday.

Sabres' Bogosian Could Play Thursday

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) could play Thursday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian skated with the team Wednesday morning and noted after the session that he "felt good." He'll now meet with the Sabres' medical staff to determine if there's any existing concerns about his injury. If the doctors give him a clean bill of health, Bogosian would likely reenter the Sabres lineup after missing the team's previous six games.

Sabres' Bogosian Gets In Skate Tuesday

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) skated during Tuesday's optional practice.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian has missed the last six games with the injury, but the Sabres haven't ruled him out for Thursday's tilt with the Coyotes. His participation in Tuesday's session amounts to progress, but he may not have a serious shot at playing against the Coyotes unless he's able to get in a full workout with the rest of the team Wednesday.

Sabres' Bogosian (Lower Body) Out Monday

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) will not play in Monday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian will be missing his sixth-straight game Monday as he remains without a firm timetable for a return to the ice. His next opportunity to play comes against the Coyotes on Thursday.

Sabres' Bogosian (Lower Body) Out Saturday

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) will not play in Saturday's game against the Predators.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian is dealing with a lower-body injury and should be considered day-to-day moving forward. His next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Stars on Monday.

Sabres' Bogosian Not Practicing

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) is not practicing Friday.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian has already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Devils, but coach Ted Nolan said the blueliner may be available for Saturday's game in Nashville. Given that he isn't practicing Friday, Bogosian seems closer to doubtful than questionable for Saturday. The big defenseman has been a minutes eater for the Sabres and his presence will be sorely missed. Andrej Meszaros (hand) is expected to be back in the lineup with Chad Ruhwedel demoted to the AHL. Expect Rasmus Ristolainen to log big minutes yet again, and he could be a sneaky play for poolies with Bogosian on the bench.

Sabres' Bogosian Progressing

News: Coach Ted Nolan relayed Thursday that Zach Bogosian (lower body) is progressing and could be back in the next few days.
Analysis: That said, Zach Bogosian didn't practice Thursday and has been ruled out for Friday's game against New Jersey. Coach Ted Nolan indicated that Bogosian could still play Saturday in Nashville, but the defenseman will probably have to show signs of improvement at Friday's gameday skate in order for that to materialize.

Sabres' Bogosian Set To Miss Another

News: Coach Ted Nolan indicated Monday that Zach Bogosian (lower body) could be forced to "miss a few games" due to his injury.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian ended up sitting out a second straight game Monday against the Capitals, and it's probably safe to rule him out for at least Tuesday's contest against the Bruins as well. The absence of a top-pairing blueliner will only further aid the Sabres' chances of securing the league's worst record.

Sabres' Bogosian Out Monday

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) won't play Monday against the Caps.
Analysis: Per the report, Zach Bogosian is slated to be evaluated by the Sabres' medical team, which presumably clouds the blueliner's status for Tuesday's game against the Bruins as well.

Sabres' Bogosian (Undisclosed) Out Saturday

News: Zach Bogosian will not play in Saturday's game against the Rangers for an undisclosed reason, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian should be considered day-to-day until the Sabres shed light on his absence. His next opportunity to get back on the ice will be against the Capitals on Monday.

Sabres Leaning Heavily On Bogosian

News: Zach Bogosian, who is averaging close to 27 minutes a night with the Sabres, is welcoming the increased minutes and role since arriving from Winnipeg, reports WGR 550.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian has four assists in 12 games with Buffalo as a do-it-all defenseman, playing significant minutes in all situations. What's more impressive, however, is that Bogosian has a plus-3 rating on a team that allows a lot of goals. Going forward, Bogosian will be the Sabres' top defenseman until Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov are ready to take over the reins. In deep leagues, Bogosian still has value due to the amount of opportunities he's been given, but he's still a defense-first player who provides more peripheral stats than scoring ability. He has 106 hits and 47 blocked shots on the season.

Sabres' Bogosian Set To Play Wednesday

News: Based on warmups, Zach Bogosian (lower body) is in line to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It looks like Zach Bogosian will work on the Sabres' top pairing, with Mike Weber, on Wednesday. Since coming over in a deal with the Jets, Bogosian has recorded four helpers and 28 PIM in 11 games for the Sabres, while recording a plus-2 rating in that span.

Sabres' Bogosian Appears Likely To Play

News: Zach Bogosian (lower body) participated in the Sabres' morning skate and appears likely to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Though all signs seem to point to Zach Bogosian playing Wednesday, coach Ted Nolan wouldn't firmly commit to the blueliner being in the lineup. Instead, with Andrej Meszaros (upper body) also a bit banged up, the Sabres will have seven defensemen take part in pregame warmups. Nolan said he would let the six healthiest defensemen play, and there's no guarantee that Bogosian will be among that group. His status should be known one way or the other by the conclusion of the warmup.

Sabres' Bogosian Should Be OK

News: Zach Bogosian, who suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Capitals, practiced fully Tuesday and says he's ready to go Wednesday when the Sabres play in Toronto, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan wasn't fully committed to signing off on Zach Bogosian's return just yet, so check back one more time if you're planning on using the blueliner on Wednesday, a thin NHL night with just six teams in action.

Sabres' Bogosian (Lower Body) Should Be Fine

News: Coach Ted Nolan indicated Monday that Zach Bogosian (lower body) should be fine for Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Zach Bogosian suffered the lower-body injury in Saturday's game against the Capitals, and didn't take part in practice Monday. However it appears the issue is minor, and he was reportedly just taking a day of rest. He hasn't been officially confirmed to play, but should be expected to unless something surfaces over the next couple days.

Sabres' Bogosian Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Zach Bogosian suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: The extent of Zach Bogosian's injury is uncertain, but the Sabres figure to provide an update on his status after he is examined by team doctors.

Sabres' Bogosian Tees Off, But Gets No Results

News: Zach Bogosian fired seven shots on goal -- tying Steven Stamkos for the game high -- and laid five hits Tuesday, but was held off the scoresheet with the rest of his mates in a 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: It's nice to see Zach Bogosian get active on the offensive end, as the seven shots he took Tuesday matched his total from the prior six games combined. The Sabres are patently awful, so it's hard to expect any kind of late-season offensive breakout from the former No. 3 overall pick, but Bogosian has at least managed to go plus-2 while contributing fantasy-friendly PIM and hit totals since coming over from Winnipeg via trade.

Sabres' Bogosian Picks Up 12 PIM In Loss

News: Zach Bogosian picked up 12 PIM in Friday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: While Zach Bogosian is pointless in four games since being traded from Winnipeg, the 24-year-old is logging heavy minutes and has recorded seven shots on goal in his last three games. He's on Buffalo's top defensive pairing and power-play unit, so the points will come sooner than later.

Sabres' Bogosian Logs 32:23 In Philadelphia

News: Zach Bogosian led all skaters with 32:23 in ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout triumph for the Sabres.
Analysis: It took a few games for head coach Ted Nolan to get a feel for Zach Bogosian, but once he did, it's clear Nolan wasn't lying when he said Bogosian would be a big minutes eater. Bogosian's 32:23 was nearly 10 more minutes than the next defenseman, Mike Weber. Youngsters Nikita Zadorov and Rasmus Ristolainen took a back seat in the game with Bogosian playing so much while defensive partner Andre Benoit reached extra benefits with the added ice time. This will probably be a common occurrence for the rest of the season, but Bogosian still hasn't tallied any points for the Sabres yet. He'll have to start producing a little bit to get back on the fantasy radar.

Sabres Leaning On Bogosian Sunday

News: Expect Zach Bogosian to "play a lot of minutes" Sunday, reports the Olean Times Herald
Analysis: Josh Gorges will be out for the game, which makes Zach Bogosian the team's biggest minutes eater by default. Wearing No. 47 for his new team, Bogosian is expected to play on the team's top pairing with Andre Benoit. The 24-year-old has a tough test with Philadelphia's dynamic duo of Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux, who are attempting to snap a cold spell of their own. Bogosian has much more upside than Gorges, but also plays on the league's worst team. He'll get tons of minutes and opportunities, but it may not amount to much in fantasy hockey.

Sabres Pair Bogosian With Benoit

News: Zach Bogosian was skating alongside Andre Benoit during Saturday's practice, the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges, who figures to be Zach Bogosian's regular partner, wasn't at practice Saturday for maintenance purposes and his status for Sunday is unclear. Benoit has rotated in and out of the lineup all season, which means he could just be a placeholder until Gorges returns. By pairing Bogosian with Benoit, it indicates that head coach Ted Nolan may use Bogosian as a security blanket, enabling his defensive partner contribute more on offense. The 24-year-old will make his team debut Sunday against the Flyers.

Jets Package Bogosian To Sabres In Blockbuster

News: Zach Bogosian was traded along with Evander Kane to Buffalo on Wednesday in a seven-player blockbuster deal, reports SiriusXM NHL Network.
Analysis: The hard-hitting defenseman will provide a strong defensive presence on the Buffalo blue line, which has been getting pummeled all season. Zach Bogosian will likely slot in on the first pairing on the right side. His defensive partner is likely to be Josh Gorges, giving Buffalo a shutdown duo that head coach Ted Nolan can utilize against the opposition's top forwards while keeping Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov intact as the second pair. Bogosian, who has 13 points in 41 games this season, will see heavier minutes and a more vital power-play role in Buffalo than in Winnipeg by virtue of Buffalo's lack of depth, but faces an almost certain downgrade in his plus/minus rating.

Jets' Bogosian Stays Hot In Win

News: Zach Bogosian tallied his third goal of the season and chipped in a power-play assist in Friday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: All three of Zach Bogosian's goals have come in the last five games, with the blueliner also adding a pair of assists during that time. He's reached the 30-point plateau for a season before, so this sort run of production isn't necessarily unprecedented for Bogosian. He might be worth scooping up off the waiver wire in deeper formats.
