Sabres' Foligno Strikes Twice In Loss

News: Marcus Foligno netted a pair of goals and fired five shots on goal in Friday's loss to Chicago.
Analysis: While he's now got five points in his last six games, the goals were his first in 24 outings. Currently skating on the second line, the 23-year-old is an inconsistent scorer who shows flashes of brilliance, but remains too streaky to be trusted in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Foligno Registers Assist In Win

News: Marcus Foligno pocketed an assist in Monday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno has three assists in his last four games, but that shouldn't be taken as an endorsement to go out and add him to your fantasy roster. His standing on the Sabres' roster is in itself detrimental to his plus/minus rating, and he doesn't have the requisite scoring skills to make up for it. Even after this minor run, Foligno still has a meager 17 points in 51 games this season.

Sabres' Foligno Assists In Loss

News: Marcus Foligno gathered an assist in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno helped set up Johan Larsson's first-period marker that gave the Sabres an early 1-0 lead, which would prove to be the team's highlight of the night. The 23-year-old has been holding down a top-six role upon returning from thumb surgery in early February, but only has a goal and four assists since that time.

Sabres' Foligno To Return Sunday

News: Marcus Foligno (thumb) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was expected to make his return from an extended absence Sunday, and that appears to be confirmed. The winger has been sidelined since late December following a fight with Boston's Matt Bartkowski, limiting him to just 28 games so far this season. With his return, Cody Hodgson will be bumped out of the lineup Sunday.

Sabres' Folingo Scores In Return

News: Marcus Foligno returned to the lineup Sunday, scoring a goal, adding an assist and dishing out five hits in a loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: A terrific return for the 23-year-old, who had been sidelined since late December following a fight with Boston's Matt Bartkowski. With six goals and 11 points in 29 games, the third-liner doesn't provide much fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues. He's collected 43 PIM and has potential, though, so if he can find some consistency, he could be worth looking at in very deep formats.

Sabres' Foligno Expects To Return Sunday

News: Marcus Foligno (thumb) is expected to return Sunday against the Islanders, reports Brian Koziol of WGR 550.
Analysis: Out since late December after a fight with Boston's Matt Bartkowski, Marcus Foligno has played in just 28 games this season, scoring nine points. He was used as a center prior to his injury, and it remains to be seen if he'll return to that position, but the Sabres could use a boost from Foligno's aggressive and physical style of play. Teammate Chris Stewart has been on fire, which can hopefully rub off on Foligno, an occasional linemate. No word on who will be taken out of the lineup, but the smart money would be on Matt Ellis or Patrick Kaleta.

Sabres' Foligno Closing In On Return

News: Marcus Foligno (hand) was a full participant during Saturday's morning session and is getting close to a return, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno didn't skate as part of a regular line during the session and thus won't play Saturday against the Stars, but he hasn't been ruled from suiting up in Sunday's tilt with the Islanders. Coach Ted Nolan seemed to suggest his return will most likely come Tuesday against the Senators, as Foligno is still adjusting to playing with a splint on his injured finger. He's been sidelined since late December with the ailment.

Sabres' Foligno Could Return This Weekend

News: Marcus Foligno (thumb) could return to action as soon as this weekend.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno will not play Thursday night, but he took part in the Sabres' Thursday morning skate, which indicates he is nearly ready to resume playing. He was expected to miss a month or two after undergoing finger surgery in late December, and it looks like he'll be able to return closer to the short end of that estimate. It's the first time Foligno has skated since getting hurt in late December; he's still wearing a cast.

Sabres' Foligno Still Without Tmetable

News: Marcus Foligno (hand) is making progress in his recovery, but he still doesn't not have a timetable to return, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: After suffering the injury in late December, Marcus Foligno was given a loose timetable of approximately one-to-two months. There hasn't been any update since that time.

Sabres' Foligno (Finger) To Miss 1-2 Months

News: Marcus Foligno underwent surgery on his injured finger during the recently completed holiday break and is projected to miss a month or two, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: In his previous acknowledgement of Marcus Foligno's injury, coach Ted Nolan seemed to indicate it would be more likely that the winger was out for the latter side of that timetable, so a late-February return looks to be the most realistic scenario here. Foligno had only nine points and a minus-6 rating over 28 games, but those in specialty formats will miss his ample contributions in the hits (92) and PIM (43) categories.

Sabres Move Foligno (Hand) To IR

News: Marcus Foligno (hand) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: With coach Ted Nolan revealing Tuesday that the winger could miss around two months with the suspected broken hand, the team moved Marcus Foligno to IR to free up roster space. Prospect Joel Armia was recalled by the Sabres in a corresponding move.

Sabres' Foligno Could Miss Two Months

News: Sabres head coach Ted Nolan said Tuesday that Marcus Foligno (hand) could miss "a couple months," WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: This update makes it likely that Marcus Foligno did in fact break his hand Sunday in a fight with Matt Bartkowski of the Bruins. Foligno's been a modest offensive contributor who's offered most of his value in the PIM and hits categories, and he'll be replaced on Buffalo's roster by highly regarded prospect Joel Armia.

Sabres' Foligno To Miss Time

News: Marcus Foligno hurt his hand against Boston on Sunday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno hurt his hand after a fight with Matt Bartkowski, who laid a hit to the head on Sabres captain Brian Gionta and was later handed a game misconduct. It's been a tough winter for the Sabres, who are playing their best hockey this year but now have 10 players out with injury or illness. Foligno likely hurt his hand after punching Bartkowski's helmet, and while he was able to pick up 17 PIM on the night for his fantasy owners, it came at a steep price. The big forward has nine points in 28 games this season and will likely be sidelined until January. No word on exactly what is wrong with the hand, though.

Sabres' Foligno Extends Streak

News: Marcus Foligno scored a goal and an assist in a 5-4 win over Ottawa on Monday and extended his points streak to three games.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno now has four points in his past three games and was awarded with 16 minutes of ice time, the most he's played in a game in December after averaging 14 minutes in his past three games. He's a physical winger who has plenty of potential, but just hasn't lived up to the billing yet. Keep an eye on him, but there are better power forwards on the waiver wire for fantasy owners right now.

Sabres' Foligno Bags Goal In Victory Thursday

News: Marcus Foligno recorded his third goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno turned in an active game, supplying four hits and spending two minutes in the penalty box in addition to finding the net. He's typically more skilled as a grinder than a scorer, however, as his meager point totals (six in 23 games) would reflect.

Sabres' Foligno (Shoulder) Will Play Saturday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) is expected to play Saturday against Toronto, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno made a premature return from a shoulder injury Tuesday but was put back on the bench with concern that he hadn't made a full recovery. He is currently expected to rejoin the third line against the Maple Leafs on Saturday, however.

Sabres' Foligno To Sit Thursday

News: Marcus Foligno will be scratched from Thursday's lineup due to the team's concern that he isn't fully recovered from his recent shoulder injury, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: After a four-game absence, Marcus Foligno returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Blues, but looked quite lethargic in his 10:25 of action. The forward finished the game with a minus-2 rating and was hanging his arm at one point in the contest, a sign he could benefit from some more conditioning work. Foligno should be viewed as day-to-day for now, but don't be surprised if the Sabres shut him down temporarily in an attempt to aid his recovery. Patrick Kaleta will join the lineup in Foligno's stead Thursday.

Sabres' Foligno Draws Back In Tuesday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Blues, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno had missed the Sabres' previous four games with the shoulder injury. Coach Ted Nolan will plug him back in on the third line, where he'll be joined by Cody McCormick and Chris Stewart.

Sabres' Foligno Cleared

News: Marcus Foligno, out since Nov. 1 due to a shoulder injury, has been cleared to play, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno is expected to play in Tuesday's game in St. Louis. He's got just three points through 11 games and plays for a team that has just 20 goals this season. Plus he'll be on a bottom line to start, so he's best left on your bench for now if your league runs that deep.

Sabres' Foligno Out Saturday

News: Marcus Foligno (shoulder) will not play Saturday against the Penguins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno revealed on Friday that his shoulder has been bothering him for the past week, which will result in him missing his fourth straight game. The forward has been able to skate the last few days, but he'll likely remain unavailable for games until he logs a full practice or two.

Sabres' Foligno Has Bum Shoulder

News: Marcus Foligno, who will miss Friday's game against Edmonton, said it's his left shoulder that's bothering him.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno is hopeful to return Saturday against Pittsburgh after suffering a left shoulder injury against them last week. He's one of Buffalo's most physical forwards and needs to stay healthy to be an effective player. The good news is that it's not the shoulder that Foligno had surgery on in the offseason. He has two goals and 36 hits in 11 games this season.

Sabres' Foligno Targeting Saturday Return

News: Marcus Foligno (general soreness) could make his return to the Buffalo lineup as soon as Saturday.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was able to skate on his own Thursday, but it doesn't sound like he's progressed enough to be a lineup option for Friday's game against the Oilers. However, if Foligno is able to increase his activity during the Sabres' morning skate Friday, coach Ted Nolan could look to swap him into the lineup for the second game of the back-to-back on Saturday. Johan Larsson has been filled in for the injured Foligno during the last two games.

Sabres' Foligno Ruled Out Wednesday

News: Coach Ted Nolan said Marcus Foligno (general soreness) would not play Wednesday against the Canadiens
Analysis: Nolan left open the possibility after Tuesday's practice that Marcus Foligno would be back in the lineup against Montreal, but the winger apparently didn't make enough progress overnight for the Sabres to feel comfortable rolling with him. He'll miss his second straight contest as Buffalo goes with the same lineup it used in Sunday's upset victory over the Red Wings.

Sabres' Foligno Could Play Wednesday

News: Marcus Foligno (general soreness) could play Wednesday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno was "banged up" and missed the Sabres' last game Sunday, but that would be the extent of his absence if he is able to return to action Wednesday.

Sabres' Foligno Banged Up And Won't Play Sunday

News: Marcus Foligno is banged up and will not play Sunday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno's injury caused the Sabres to call up Johan Larsson, who will start Sunday against the Red Wings in his place. Foligno's injury is unclear, but it sounds as though it might be a combination of bumps and bruises, but doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out long-term.
