Capitals Recall Sabourin

News: Dany Sabourin was recalled Tuesday, the Capitals' official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: The 31-year-old goaltender went 3-2 with a 3.19 GAA in this year's Calder Cup (AHL) playoffs. Dany Sabourin hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2008-09, but he may get a chance to back up Braden Holtby in Wednesday's Game 3 against the Rangers.

Caps Send Down Sabourin

News: Dany Sabourin was assigned to the AHL on Friday, the Capitals' official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: The 31-year-old was called up on Apr. 7, but didn't appear in any NHL games this season. He posted a 2.76 GAA in 37 games for the Hershey Bears of the AHL this season, but he hasn't played in the NHL since the 2008-09 season. It appears Michal Neuvirth (lower body) could be ready to back up Braden Holtby in Saturday's Game 5 against Boston.

Washington Calls Up Sabourin

News: Dany Sabourin was recalled from the AHL on Saturday, Capitals.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Sobourin's call-up seems to imply that Washington could be without both Tomas Vokoun and Michael Neuvirth against the Rangers on Saturday.

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin Returned To AHL

News: Dany Sabourin was returned to Hershey (AHL) on Sunday, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: This is a good indication that Michal Neuvirth is almost healthy again, but we'll keep an eye out for any other transactions involving the Caps' netminders in the coming days.

Dany Sabourin

Caps Recall Sabourin

News: The Caps called up Dany Sabourin from Hershey of the AHL on Saturday, The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The team had sent Braden Holtby back down to Hershey on Friday, but after Michal Neuvirth missed Saturday's practice, they still needed someone to be the backup Saturday night. Dany Sabourin will be that backup.

Caps' Sabourin Clears Waivers, Back to Hershey

News: Sabourin cleared waivers Friday and reported back to AHL Hershey, Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Sabourin was no longer needed in D.C. as Semyon Varlamov is ready to return to the team Saturday. Sabourin was not claimed and will back up Braden Holtby in Hershey going forward.

Caps Put Sabourin on Waivers

News: The Capitals placed Sabourin on waivers Thursday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: With Michal Neuvirth steadily improving and Semyon Varlamov close to coming back from injury, Sabourin was no longer needed in Washington. Assuming he goes unclaimed, he'll likely report to the AHL.

3/8/2010

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin sent back to AHL

News: Bruins G Dany Sabourin, who was up while Tuukka Rask dealt with a knee injury, was reassigned to the AHL on Monday.
Analysis: Sabourin has no Fantasy value while down in the minors. Continue to ignore him.

9/27/2009

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin optioned; Rask staying

News: On Saturday, the Bruins promoted director of hockey operations Don Sweeney to assistant general manager and also announced they had trimmed the roster down to 24 by sending 10 players, including goalie Dany Sabourin, to Providence of the American Hockey League. That means Tuukka Rask will back up Tim Thomas in net.
Analysis: We fully expected Rask to open the season as the Bruins backup goalie since he has pretty much done all the can in the minors. He will definitely see time in net for Boston, so consider him a nice No. 3 Fantasy goalie and flier in leagues that use average points per game. Sabourin is nothing more than organizational depth and has minimal Fantasy appeal as he is third on the team's depth chart. The Bruins TG has high-end Fantasy appeal.

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin latches on with Bruins

News: The Bruins signed goalie Dany Sabourin to a one-year deal Tuesday. Additional terms of the contract were not released.
Analysis: The 28-year-old Sabourin split the 2008-09 season between Pittsburgh and Edmonton. He appeared in 19 games for the Pens, going 6-8-2 with a 2.85 GAA and .898 save percentage. He was then traded to Edmonton Jan. 17 and did not appeared in a game for the Oilers before being waived Jan. 20. Sabourin spent the rest of the season with Springfield of the AHL. He went 5-6-2 with a 3.17 GAA and .904 save percentage. Sabourin will likely begin the season third on the Bruins' depth chart at goalie behind Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask. Sabourin is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy until further notice. The Bruins TG is still a high-end Fantasy option because of Thomas.

1/20/2009

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin waived by Oilers

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin waived by Oilers

News: TSN reports that the Oilers have placed newly-acquired G Dany Sabourin on waivers.
Analysis: The Oilers had already said they didn't intend to hold on to Sabourin, so this move wasn't a huge surprise. He'll either clear waivers and head to the AHL, or will be picked up by another team. For now, he has zero Fantasy value.

1/19/2009

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin won't be headed to Edmonton

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin won't be headed to Edmonton

News: The Sports Xchange reports the Oilers finally took care of their overcrowding problem in goal, dealing netminder Mathieu Garon to the Pittsburgh Penguins. "I knew from training camp that something was going to happen," Garon said. "But you never know when or where." The three-goalie predicament -- dubbed the three-headed monster in Edmonton -- had been cutting into everyone's practice and playing time, making it a sure-fire recipe for rust. So Garon goes to Pittsburgh for goalie Dany Sabourin, minor league center Ryan Stone and a fourth-round draft pick. GM Steve Tambellini said Sabourin won't be coming to Edmonton -- they'll either flip him in another deal or ship him to Springfield (AHL).
Analysis: Sabourin wasn't in a bad situation with the Penguins, but he wasn't getting much PT since Marc-Andre Fleury returned from a groin injury. He has proven to be a capable backup goalie, so some other NHL team could very well scoop him up. But he won't be inserted into the lineup as a starter and has little Fantasy value until further notice.

1/17/2009

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin traded to Oilers

News: The Pittsburgh Penguins and Edmonton Oilers each tried to shore up a weak spot by swapping backup goaltenders Saturday, with the Penguins acquiring Mathieu Garon for Dany Sabourin, minor league forward Ryan Stone and a fourth-round draft pick in 2011.
Analysis: The deal involves two goalies who weren't satisfying their teams. Sabourin, at 28, is three years younger than Garon. Sabourin, a third-teamer last season, is 6-8-2 with an .898 save percentage that ranked 36th in the league and a 2.85 goals-against average. Garon has similar numbers - a 6-8 record, an .895 save percentage and a 3.17 goals-against average - but was Edmonton's starter in 2007-08 before losing his job to Dwayne Roloson. Last season, Garon was 26-18-1 with a 2.66 goals-against average. Sabourin can't really be trusted even as a flier at this point, so look elsewhere unless you're really in desperate need of a goalie in an extremely deep league.

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin lit up and yanked

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin lit up and yanked

News: Pittsburgh G Dany Sabourin gave up four goals on 25 shots at Colorado on Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Avalanche. He was pulled after the second period in favor of Marc-Andre Fleury who came in and allowed a goal and made six saves. Sabourin is now 6-8-2 on the season with five straight losses.
Analysis: Sabourin has been flat out awful over the past month, allowing three goals or more in seven of his last eight appearances for Pittsburgh. He can't really be trusted even as a flier at this point, so look elsewhere unless you're really in desperate need of a goalie in an extremely deep league.

1/3/2009

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Penguins goalies awful in loss

News: Penguins G Marc-Andre Fleury was pulled from Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Panthers after a first period in which he allowed two goals on five shots. But Florida scored on their first shot against backup Dany Sabourin -- and tallied three against him on 12 second-period shots before Fleury returned for the third. Fleury also finished with three goals on 12 shots allowed.
Analysis: Fleury has now lost three starts in a row, and it really doesn't matter who is in goal for the Penguins lately, as they are really struggling. Fleury remains the starter in the Steel City for now, and he is barely holding on to his No. 1 Fantasy goalie status. While owners in deeper leagues would probably like to bench him, the Penguins play four times in Fantasy Week 14 (Jan. 5-11), so that's really not an option. Sabourin is worth holding on to in deeper leagues, but shouldn't be starting in any format. The Penguins TG remains a No. 1 option, but only just.

Sabourin falls on New Year's

News: Pittsburgh G Dany Sabourin stopped 22 of 25 shots against the Boston Bruins on New Year's Day but it wasn't enough as Boston won 4-2. Sabourin allowed three goals in the game and the final tally came on the empty net.
Analysis: Sabourin fell below .500 with the loss Thursday and now holds a record of 6-7-2 on the year. He's lost his last five starts and is ice cold right now for Pittsburgh. No matter, Sabourin is just the Penguins backup to Marc-Andre Fleury and is only a flier in leagues that use averages. The Penguins TG is a high-end Fantasy option.

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin allows two in relief

Sabourin allows two in relief

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin came into Saturday's game against the Leafs with his team trailing 5-2 in the third period. He gave up two more goals and the final score was 7-3.
Analysis: Fleury is usually solid in net, but not Saturday and that gave Sabourin a chance to play. He didn't do much with it, allowing two goals on seven shots. Sabourin remains only a flier in leagues that use averages. However, the Penguins TG is a high-end option despite a poor performance Saturday.

12/13/2008

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin starts over Fleury, allows six

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin starts over Fleury, allows six

News: G Dany Sabourin got shelled in Marc-Andre Fleury's return to the Pittsburgh roster on Saturday. Sabourin gave up six goals and had only 21 saves in the thrashing. Usual starting goalie Fleury was on the bench for the Penguins and active. This may be the end of the road for Sabourin in terms of getting regular starts.
Analysis: With Fleury back, Saoburin's value in Fantasy plummets because Fleury is one of the better goalies in the league. Unless Fleury gets hurt again, Saborun is nothing more than a flier in leagues that use averages or a flier. The Penguins TG is a high-end option no matter who is in net.

12/12/2008

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin returning to backup role

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin returning to backup role

News: Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury will be in uniform for the Pittsburgh Penguins' game at Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon after missing 12 games with a groin injury. Penguins coach Michel Therrien wouldn't say Friday if Fleury or Dany Sabourin would start against the Flyers. Rookie goalie John Curry, who stopped 24 of 26 shots during a 9-2 rout of the New York Islanders on Thursday night, was returned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.
Analysis: Fleury, who helped lead the Penguins to the Stanley Cup finals last season, was 8-3-2 with a 2.86 goals-against average before getting hurt during a 5-2 win against Buffalo on Nov. 15. Sabourin has made all but two starts since Fleury was hurt and is 6-5-2 with a 2.20 goals-against average this season. Sabourin has been great in Fleury's absence, but he is not as talented and will return to his backup role shortly. His time as a stopgap Fantasy option appears up.

12/10/2008

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS Sabourin loses three straight

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin loses three straight

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin allowed three goals and had 28 saves in a 4-1 loss to the Devils on Wednesday. It was his third straight losing effort, dropping his overall record to 6-5-2 on the season. Two of the goals allowed came in the third period.
Analysis: With three straight losses, Penguins fans may be longing for usual starter Marc-Andre Fleury who is supposed to practice this week and could be back in net soon. This is a bad time for Sabourin to be struggling if he wants to keep getting starts when Fleury comes back. Sabourin is only a stopgap option and the Penguins' TG is a high-end option.

Sabourin blows two-goal lead

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin blew a 3-1 lead as Buffalo rallied for a 4-3 win Monday. Thomas Vanek's go-ahead goal, his NHL-best 20th of the season, completed the rally 6:13 into the third period. Sabourin allowed no power-play scores and made 25 saves in the loss.
Analysis: Sabourin has lost his last two starts, but has been pretty good in net since Marc-Andre Fleury went down with injury. Fleury is expected to practice this week and could return to net shortly, meaning Sabourin's time as a starter could be running out. Sabourin remains a stopgap Fantasy option for the time being. The Penguins TG is a high-end Fantasy option.

Sabourin takes a rare loss

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin took a rare 3-2 loss on Saturday at Ottawa. He allowed three goals on 28 shots, with all of the goals coming in the second period. Jason Spezza scored all three goals, recording the hat trick.
Analysis: Sabourin still hasn't allowed more than three goals in a game and has played exceptionally well. Unfortunately for him on Saturday, the Pens took only 19 shots against Sentators G Alex Auld. The Pens want to keep sitting Marc-Andre Fleury as long as possible, so Sabourin's good play will earn him more starts. Sabourin is a good stopgap option for Week 10 (Dec. 8-14). The Penguins TG is a high-end option.

Sabourin beats Carolina in rout

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin turned away 34 shots during Thursday's 5-2 rout of the Hurricanes. He never trailed in the game and didn't allow a goal until Pittsburgh built a 3-0 lead 2:12 into the second period. Sabourin allowed one power-play goal while winning for the second time in three starts.
Analysis: Sabourin still hasn't allowed more than three goals in an appearance this season, and the long he plays well, the longer Pittsburgh can afford to sit Marc-Andre Fleury (lower body). Sabourin remains a decent stopgap Fantasy option heading into Week 10 (Dec. 8-14). The Penguins TG is a high-end option.

12/3/2008

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin loses in SO

News: Penguins G Dany Sabourin took a 3-2 shootout loss on Wednesday at the New York Rangers. He allowed two goals came up with 25 saves, but allowed three pucks to get past him in the shootout. The loss drops Sabourin's record to 5-3-1 on the year.
Analysis: Despite the loss, Sabourin has been solid in net for the Penguins with the absence of Marc-Andre Fleury. With the length of Fleury's absence in doubt, Sabourin's usefulness continues to go up. Sabourin is a good stopgap option until Fleury comes back. The Penguins TG is a high-end option, especially when Fleury gets back.

11/29/2008

Dany Sabourin, G, WAS

Dany Sabourin

Sabourin solid in win over Devils

News: Pittsburgh G Dany Sabourin stopped 29 shots on Saturday against the Devils in a 4-1 victory. Sabourin allowed just one goal in the game on Mike Rupp's 3rd period goal to improve to 5-2-1 on the year.
Analysis: Sabourin has got a 1.96 goals against average and that was before allowing just one goal to the Devils on Saturday. He's been starting for injured goalie Marc-Andre Fleury but the No. 1 option is close to a return so we don't know how many more starts Sabourin will get. Sabourin is only a stop-gap option as long as he gets starts with Fleury out. The Penguins TG is a high-end Fantasy option since Sabourin has been playing well in Fleury's absence.
