Sabres' Hodgson Stuck On Fourth Line

News: Cody Hodgson skated on a two-man fourth line at practice on Thursday, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: With 11 forwards, Cody Hodgson and Chris Stewart skated together as the team awaits a minor league call-up from AHL Rochester. Hodgson was benched for 28 minutes against the Jets after losing a battle along the wall and then losing a foot race against Mark Scheifele that led to a shorthanded goal. Never the fastest or swiftest skater, Hodgson is having trouble keeping up and no matter where head coach Ted Nolan plays him - either at center or left wing - the former 10th overall pick just can't seem to produce. He has just five points this season and has been an extreme disappointing since signing a $25.5 million extension in 2013. Even though he's young and talented, his lack of production forces Nolan to sit him, and his big contract makes him difficult to trade. Hodgson's slated to play Saturday but his leash will be short.

Sabres' Hodgson Not On Nolan's Good Side

News: Cody Hodgson seems to have landed in coach Ted Nolan's doghouse again, playing only 4:55 in Tuesday's loss to the Jets and not seeing the ice again after he lost a faceoff on a power play and got out-hustled for a shorthanded goal by Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson is having a horrible season, and is one of the few Sabres who hasn't seen success in recent weeks as the team has turned its season around. He continues to play on a bottom line and might be in line for some more press box time, while his five points on the season is a gross underachievement compared to his six-year, $25.5 million salary.

Sabres' Hodgson Slated To Return Saturday

News: Cody Hodgson will return to the lineup Saturday against the Panthers.
Analysis: A healthy scratch for the first time this season Thursday, Cody Hodgson will replace Cody McCormick (lower body) on the Sabres' fourth line. With only three points in 28 games, Hodgson still has a ways to go in order to remove himself from coach Ted Nolan's doghouse.

Sabres' Hodgson To Be Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Cody Hodgson will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Flames.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan had previously threatened scratching the struggling Cody Hodgson multiple points earlier in the season, but instead opted to relegate the forward to one of the team's bottom two lines. It appears he might have reached his breaking point, however, as Hodgson will sit for the first time this season, as Chris Stewart reenters the lineup. Counted upon to be a top offensive contributor heading into the season, Hodgson has provided just one goal and two assists over 28 games.

Sabres' Hodgson Continues Cold Spell

News: Even though the Sabres scored six goals Saturday against Toronto in a 6-2 win, Cody Hodgson extended his pointless streak to 10 games.
Analysis: Head coach Ted Nolan is really spreading the minutes around lately, but Cody Hodgson has seen his role diminish prominently this season. After scoring 20 goals and 44 points in 72 games the previous season, he has just two points in 18 games. He's not a strong defensive player so when Hodgson doesn't score, he's not particularly effective. Nolan said he would scratch Hodgson if his game doesn't pick up soon, and that may happen sooner than later.

Cody Hodgson

Sabres' Hodgson In Danger Of Losing Lineup Spot

News: Cody Hodgson was dropped to the fourth line at Wednesday's practice, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan didn't hide his disappointment with Cody Hodgson's play so far this season, suggesting that the forward was "pretty close" to becoming a healthy scratch. Signed by the previous regime to a six-year, $25.5 million extension prior to last season, Hodgson was counted on to be a cornerstone player for the Sabres, but has faltered badly in that regard to date. He's accumulated just two points and attempted 11 shots over 10 games, yielding a minus-7 rating.

Sabres' Hodgson Ends Goalless Drought

News: Cody Hodgson notched his first goal of the season in a 2-1 win over San Jose on Saturday.
Analysis: It only took nine games, but Cody Hodgson finally lit the lamp after scoring 20 goals in 72 games last year. It was Hodgson's second point of the season after struggling early on, registering just nine shots in eight games. His lack of production is a big reason why the Sabres' offense has struggled. Hodgson was Buffalo's leading scorer last year with 44 points and should be leading the charge again this season. Moving to the left wing is supposed to open up his offensive game, but thus far it hasn't paid dividends. Still, the season is young and there's still lots of hockey to be played. Hodgson remains one of the few Sabres worth owning in deep fantasy leagues.

Sabres Move Hodgson Back To Center

News: Cody Hodgson will move back to center after opening the season at left wing, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The Sabres were planning to use Cody Hodgson at left wing full-time this season, but he did not tally a point through the season's first three games, so head coach Ted Nolan wasted little scrapping the experiment in an effort to allow Hodgson to be more of a playmaker. He will likely center either the Sabres' second or third line.

Sabres' Hodgson Preparing For Move To Wing

News: Cody Hodgson will transition to a full-time role at left wing with the Sabres this season, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson moved from center to wing late last season with the Sabres, but it wasn't until he thrived at the position for Team Canada in this summer's World Championships that the organization decided to make the role a permanent one. The 24-year-old was used alongside Chris Stewart and Mikhail Grigorenko during Sunday's preseason tilt, recording a team-high seven shots while assisting on a goal. Now that it seems he's found his niche for the Sabres, it wouldn't be surprising if Hodgson improved upon last season's outputs of 20 goals and 44 points.

Sabres' Hodgson Leads Canada With Six Goals

News: Cody Hodgson finished the World Championships with six goals and eight points in seven games as Canada was eliminated in the quarterfinal by Finland on Thursday.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson's six goals -- including a hat trick against Denmark -- paced Team Canada and tied Joel Ward for the team lead. Playing left wing on a line with center Nazem Kadri and right winger Troy Brouwer, Hodgson was an offensive force. He's considered a below-average skater, but playing on the wing helps minimize the area he has to cover, which allows him to join the rush in better position. Hodgson's performance is encouraging, both in terms of his production and his ability to adapt to a new position. He'll most likely continue to be a left winger for the Sabres next season.

Sabres' Hodgson Scores Two To Lead Canada

News: Cody Hodgson scored two goals as Canada routed Italy 6-1 Friday at the World Championships.
Analysis: That's five goals in two games for Cody Hodgson, who came off a hat-trick performance against Denmark. He scored just 20 goals for the Sabres this past season. When Hodgson is at his best, he can be one of the best playmakers on the ice, but injuries and inconsistency have hurt in the past few seasons. His confidence should be high right now as Canada advances in the tournament.

Sabres' Hodgson Nets Hat Trick Against Denmark

News: Cody Hodgson scored a hat trick to lead Team Canada past Team Denmark in a 6-1 win Thursday at the World Championships, reports The Globe and Mail.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson's skill was on full display against the Danes as the 24-year-old center continues to improve game-by-game at the World Championships. Expectations were high for Hodgson heading into the season, but inconsistent play and injuries limited him to just 44 points in 72 games. His strong performances, despite a slow start to the tournament, bodes well for Hodgson and the Sabres. The 10th overall pick will be leaned on heavily again next season, and getting his confidence back and staying healthy should push him to a higher level.

Sabres' Hodgson Scores Winner At Worlds

News: Cody Hodgson scored the game-winning goal in Team Canada's 4-1 over Team Slovakia on Saturday at the World Championships.
Analysis: With an assist in the previous game, Cody Hodgson is off to a good start with points in Canada's first two games at the World Championships. Hodgson also registered three shots on goal playing alongside Nazem Kadri once again, and the two seem to be developing some chemistry. The Sabres are hoping that an injury-free tournament can boost Hodgson's confidence as the 24-year-old looks to lead the Sabres offense next year. Canada plays the Czech Republic on Monday.

Sabres' Hodgson Collects Assist In Loss To France

News: Cody Hodgson assisted on Canada's first goal on the power play though they were eventually upset by the French in a 3-2 shootout loss at the World Championships on Friday.
Analysis: Though there was talk that Cody Hodgson would move back to center for the World Championships, he started on center Nazem Kadri's left wing and opposite right winger Troy Brouwer. Canada couldn't generate much in even strength play, but Hodgson found the scoresheet by setting up Brayden Schenn's power-play goal. Perhaps playing with better teammates will bring out the best from Hodgson, who managed just 44 points in 72 games this season. He's seen as a big piece of the Sabres moving forward but the former 10th overall pick has not lived up to expectations.

Sabres' Hodgson Named To Canada For Worlds

News: The Sabres' leading scorer, Cody Hodgson was named to Team Canada on Thursday for the upcoming World Championships.
Analysis: This is the first time Cody Hodgson has been named to Team Canada for the World Championships. Other than the presence of a few veterans, Team Canada will have a very young squad. Although Hodgson was moved to the left wing on the Sabres late in the season, there's a possibility he will return to center for Canada. He faces tough competition, however, with Kyle Turris, Sean Monahan, Nazem Kadri and Mark Scheifele also named to the squad.

Hodgson Finishes Season As Sabres' Scoring Leader

News: Cody Hodgson missed 10 games this season, but still managed 44 points, good enough to be the Sabres' top scorer.
Analysis: The 24-year-old set a new career high, but the overall production was rather disappointing. He scored 34 points in 48 games the previous season, but only managed to improve his point total by 10 despite playing in 24 more games. He also became even more of a defensive liability, with a minus-26 rating on the year. Near the end of the season, the right-handed Cody Hodgson was moved the left wing, where head coach Ted Nolan suspects he'll be more effective -- he's faster along the wall than in the center of the ice. Hodgson has played 211 NHL games so far, and has shown flashes of talent, but is handicapped by his poor skating. However, he'll still get his opportunities next year as one of the Sabres' top forwards.

Hodgson Scores Lone Sabres' Goal In Loss

News: Cody Hodgson scored the lone Sabres' goal in a 4-1 loss to the Bruins on Saturday.
Analysis: With the tally, Cody Hodgson hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. He is finishing the season strong, recording four goals and four assists in his last eight games. On the season, Hodgson has amassed 44 points in 71 games, combined with a disastrous minus-26 rating.

Sabres' Hodgson Flourishing At Left Wing

News: Cody Hodgson assisted on both of Zemgus Girgensons' goals Tuesday, representing the entirety of the Buffalo offense in a 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: That's consecutive two-point games for Cody Hodgson and seven points in his last six contests. The conversion to left wing seems to be going well; almost all that production has come since he was moved off the center position.

Sabres' Hodgson Drives Offense In Loss

News: Cody Hodgson provided a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: The Sabres have dropped four of their last five games, but that can't be pinned on Cody Hodgson. The 24-year-old has contributed three goals and two assists during that span.

Sabres' Hodgson Welcomes Move To Left Wing

News: A center throughout his career, Cody Hodgson was moved to the left wing Tuesday against New Jersey and may stay there for the foreseeable future, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson was never fast enough to cover enough ice playing center and was never good at winning faceoffs, making him a defensive liability most nights. Moving him to the left wing puts a little less pressure on him to play defense and, as a right-hand shot, playing on his off-wing affords him some interesting options on offense. If he can't beat defenders to the outside, Hodgson can turn towards the center of the ice on his forehand, making it easier to shoot or pass. Tyler Ennis and Zemgus Girgensons are seen as the team's two centers going forward.

Buffalo's Hodgson Nets 17th Goal Of Season

News: Cody Hodgson scored his 17th goal of the season in Saturday's OT loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The goal came on a nice tip play. He started the game at wing again, but he did take 13 faceoffs. His future may lie at wing -- it gives him some relief from the defensive responsibilities of center ice. And that should increase his offensive output. He may be a buy low in keeper formats.

Sabres' Hodgson Back At Center

News: After a short stint playing on the wing, Cody Hodgson moved back to center at Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Moving Cody Hodgson to the wing was understandable because he isn't very good at winning faceoffs and a liability on defense with his poor skating and inconsistent efforts. However, his playmaking abilities are best served at the center of the ice, not to mention the Sabres' lack depth down the middle. Hodgson's value in fantasy increases when he plays center, but he's having a tough season along with the rest of the team. It's hard to see Hodgson catching fire this late in the season though he has 69 points in 107 games over the past two seasons with Buffalo. He is also minus-36 in that span.

Two Points For Sabres' Hodgson

News: Cody Hodgson scored a goal, contributed an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: That's four points in the last four games for Cody Hodgson, who's looked very good since the post-Olympic resumption of play. Unfortunately, you can't count on him to put up consistent positive ratings for an inconsistent Buffalo team -- even if the Sabres happen to be on a nice run right now.

Hodgson Opens Buffalo Scoring

News: Cody Hodgson scored the opening goal in Buffalo's 4-2 win over San Jose on Friday, giving him a point in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson is one of Buffalo's top offensive players and should challenge 45 points this season. He's still a young player with a boatload of talent, so don't be surprised to see him remain in Buffalo during what many believe will be a fire sale.

Cody Hodgson, C, BUF Sabres' Hodgson Nets Two Goals

Cody Hodgson

Sabres' Hodgson Nets Two Goals

News: Cody Hodgson scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: If you can deal with the fact that Cody Hodgson is going to have more than a few games like Monday's (zero points, minus-3), there's plenty of fantasy value to be found here, as the young centerman has 10 points -- including six goals -- in nine games since returning from a finger injury.
