Sabres' Szczechura Agrees To Play In Czech Republic

News: Paul Szczechura has signed to play in the Czech Republic, according to The Buffalo News.
Analysis: The 26-year-old had a bit of success in some brief time with the Sabres last season, but this is an organization with a lot of good prospects and as the season wore on others stepped ahead of him when call-ups were needed. Given Paul Szczechura's success at the AHL level - 21 goals in 57 games last season - we wouldn't be surprised to see him do well overseas and this may not be the last we've heard from him.

Sabres Send Szczechura To Rochester

News: Paul Szczechura was sent to Rochester of the AHL following Monday's win over Washington, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The Sabres will have no problem recalling him again, as he even saw time on the top line in his most recent stint, but the team is finally getting some healthy regulars back on the forward lines and it's time for Paul Szczechura to keep learning at the AHL level.

Szczechura Scores In Sabres' Loss

News: Paul Szczechura posted his first goal of the season in Tuesday's overtime loss to Ottawa, giving him four points in five NHL games this season.
Analysis: Paul Szczechura saw some time with the Sabres' top line with Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek and has been producing in his limited action with the big club. If this role becomes regular for Szczechura, consider making a move for him in deep leagues and keeper leagues.

Sabres' Szczechura Gets Promoted

News: Paul Szczechura is expected to see time on the top line with Thomas Vanek and Jason Pominville when the Sabres take on the Senators on Tuesday, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: We're not sure how long this will last, but Paul Szczechura is certainly making the most of the time given to him during injuries. He's still not seeing meaningful power play time -- just two seconds on average per game -- so there may be a limit on just how much he can produce. But his three points in four games and being used on the top line may make him useable in deep leagues in the short term.

Sabres Recall Szczechura

News: The Sabres have recalled Paul Szczechura from the AHL, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: In his two game stint with the Sabres earlier this season, Paul Szczechura recorded two points (assists). He will likely play Friday against Carolina but he doesn't hold much fantasy value despite his success in those two games.

Sabres Send Szczechura Back to AHL

News: Paul Szczechura's brief NHL trip ended Wednesday, as the Sabres sent him back to the AHL, the Sabres' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: Paul Szczechura played in a mere two games but showed he is more than just the odd man out. He put up to two points in his first two games. These two points came in Buffalo's blowout win over the struggling Caps, but with the team's forwards returning to health, Szczechura is now back in the AHL. He could be back up again, however, if Patrick Kaleta isn't ready to play this weekend.

Szczechura Skates For Sabres

News: Paul Szczechura played 13:18 in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders, finishing with one shot and one hit following a call-up from Rochester (AHL) earlier on Tuesday.
Analysis: With Patrick Kaleta nursing a lower-body injury, Paul Szczechura has been called upon to give Buffalo checking minutes.

Sabres Recall Szczechura

News: The Sabres recalled Paul Szczechura from AHL Rochester on Tuesday, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Paul Szczechura will get another shot with the big club after recording two assists in his team debut Saturday. He figures to be in the lineup somewhere Tuesday, but it's not yet clear which line he will skate with.

Sabres' Szczechura Returned To Rochester

News: Paul Szczechura has been sent to Rochester (AHL), the Sabres' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: His stay was brief, but he filled in well with a pair of assists in a win over Washington on Saturday night. He'll be an option again later this season if injuries open up the need for another forward on the Buffalo roster.

Sabres' Szczechura Records Two Assists Saturday

News: Paul Szczechura had two assists in Saturday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Paul Szczechura filled in nicely for an injured Drew Stafford, who sat out the game. He should continue to earn playing time as long as Stafford is out.

Sabres Call Up Szczechura

News: The Sabres have called up Paul Szczechura from the AHL, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Szchechura played 52 NHL games in 2009, recording seven points and a minus-15 rating. He hasn't seen any NHL action since. He wasn't much of a scoring threat in the AHL last season, recording just eight goals in 35 games.

Sabres' Szczechura Clears Waivers

News: Paul Szczechura has cleared waivers, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: As expected. The Rochester Americans of the AHL will likely welcome Paul Szczechura in the very near future.

Sabres Place Szczechura On Waivers

News: The Sabres placed Paul Szczechura (lower body) on waivers Thursday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

Paul Szczechura

Lightning send four to AHL

News: The Lightning have sent RW Mark Parrish, C Paul Szczechura, D Matt Lashoff and D Vladmir Mihalik back to the AHL.
Analysis: None of these guys have any seasonal Fantasy value at this time.

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura called up, gets two points

News: The Lightning called up Paul Szczechura on Saturday, and the 24-year-old paid immediate dividends, scoring and assisting in a win over the Thrashers.
Analysis: Szczechura isn't usually much of an offensive presence for the Lightning when he's up in the NHL, but he showed up on Saturday. Continue to ignore Szczechura in all formats for now.

2/4/2010

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura placed on waivers

News: The Lightning have placed C Paul Szczechura on waivers.
Analysis: Szczechura has three points and a minus-10 in 37 games this season. He is primarily a checking-line presence for Tampa Bay and has little to no Fantasy appeal when active in the NHL.

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura on conditioning stint

News: The Sports Xchange reports Lightning C Paul Szczechura was sent to Norfolk of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment.
Analysis: Szczechura, called up on Nov. 7, has appeared in 37 games this season and had just two goals and three points. He would have had to clear waivers to be reassigned. Szczechura is primarily a checking-line presence for Tampa Bay and has little to no Fantasy appeal when active in the NHL.

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura scores in consecutive games

News: Lightning C Paul Szczechura scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Saturday's game against the Stars. The Lightning got the game's first goal at 6:18 of the second on Szczechura's wrist shot from the left circle off a 2-on-1 break following a turnover by Stars defenseman Matt Niskanen. He has scored in two straight games.
Analysis: Szczechura started the season in the minors before Tampa Bay recalled him earlier in November. Szczechura is nothing more than a lower-line forward when in the NHL. He has scored in two straight games, but his play will fizzle out. He has little to no Fantasy appeal.

11/12/2009

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura recalled from AHL

News: The Lightning have recalled C Paul Szczechura from the AHL.
Analysis: Szczechura spent 31 games in Tampa Bay last season, but managed just nine points. He is just organizational depth and has no Fantasy value.

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura back from five-game absence

News: Lightning C Paul Szczechura returned to the lineup Friday against the Devils after missing five games with a lower-body injury. He failed to record a point in 14:33 of ice time and finished at plus-1.
Analysis: Szczechura has dressed for 27 games this season while bouncing between the NHL and AHL. He has three goals, three assists and a minus-1 rating. He is primarily a checking-line forward and penalty-killing specialist when healthy, so he has minimal Fantasy appeal.

3/31/2009

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura unable to play

News: Lightning C Paul Szczechura (lower body) did not return to action Tuesday against the Bruins. He has missed the last five games and remains questionable heading into Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: Szczechura has dressed for 26 games this season while bouncing between the NHL and AHL. He has three goals, three assists and a minus-2 rating. He is primarily a checking-line forward and penalty-killing specialist when healthy, so he has minimal Fantasy appeal.

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura held out a fourth game

News: The Sports Xchange reports Lightning C Paul Szczechura has missed four consecutive games with a lower-body injury and is considered day-to-day. Szczechura skated through a full practice on Thursday morning, but he was not able to play Sunday against the Senators.
Analysis: Szczechura has dressed for 26 games this season while bouncing between the NHL and AHL. He has three goals, three assists and a minus-2 rating. He is primarily a checking-line forward and penalty-killing specialist when healthy, so he has minimal Fantasy appeal.

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura only misses one game

News: Tampa Bay C Paul Szczechura returned to the lineup Saturday against the Hurricanes after missing one game with a wrist injury. He tallied an assist in 11:30 of ice time and finished at even.
Analysis: Szczechura has played in just two games since returning from Norfolk of the AHL. He has played 20 games in his rookie season, but still remains more of a lower-line forward. He has little to no Fantasy value.

3/3/2009

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Lightning recall two from AHL

News: Tampa Bay recalled C Paul Szczechura and RW Brandon Segal from Norfolk of the AHL Tuesday. Both played against the Penguins, but neither recorded a point.
Analysis: Szczechura and Segal are just with the team at this time as they tinker with their lineup leading up to the trade deadline. Both players could be back in the minors shortly, so continue to ignore them in Fantasy.

2/15/2009

Paul Szczechura, C, BUF

Paul Szczechura

Szczechura off IR, down to AHL

News: The Lightning have activated C Paul Szczechura off injured reserve Friday and sent the rookie back to AHL Norfolk. Szczechura had missed 12 games with a lower body injury, believed to be his knee.
Analysis: Szczechura was summoned from the AHL in early December and has played primarily on the lower lines for Tampa Bay. He has produced four points in 18 games, but hasn't been an overwhelming player. He has little to no Fantasy value when healthy and up in the NHL.
