RW - BUF
Sabres right wing Tage Thompson scored two goals in their 4-3 loss to the Devils.
Outside of recording four points in his last four games, Thompson has been an non-factor for most of the season in Buffalo.
Tage Thompson scored his seventh and eighth goals of the season in a 7-4 Sabers loss. Thompson had five SOG and a -1 rating in almost 17 minutes of ice time.
Thompson now has goals in back to back games and in three of his last five games. With 13 points on the season, he is a good bench option at this time.
Thompson went the full length of the ice to nab his third goal of the season.
He is seeing 18 minutes of ice time and on the first power-play line for the Sabres. With six points, seven hits, and four blocked shots in ten games, fantasy managers could benefit if in need of a filler.
Tage Thompson got his 3rd assist of the season on Johan Larsson’s third period goal in a 2-1 Sabres loss to the Capitals on Friday night.
Tage Thompson got his first point in 9 games to give him 4 goals and 3 assists through 29 games. Thompson has no value playing on the Sabres fourth line and getting no power play time.
Tage Thompson got his 2nd assist of the year on Rasmus Ristolainen’s beautiful 2nd period goal in the Sabres 3-2 overtime win.
Tage Thompson has come to life of late with 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 5 games. Part of this increase in scoring production could be his recent promotion to the 2nd even strength and power play lines. Going into this season the newly acquired Thompson was looked at as a sleeper possibility. That didn’t happen early on but he seems to be coming around. Thompson still should only be owned in the deepest fantasy league but watch to see if he continues to score.
