Andrej Meszaros D BUF 1 Day

Meszaros bagged a goal, spent two minutes in the penalty box, and submitted a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

Meszaros has points in three straight and goals in back-to-back games, a surprising development after he found the net just once in his first 41 games with the Sabres. The blueliner was a reasonably prized commodity at the trade deadline last season, but his downturn in performance since joining the Sabres probably won't allow him to generate much interest from other teams leading up to Monday's deadline.

Meszaros will play Tuesday against Ottawa, reports Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News.After sitting for four straight games, Meszaros will draw in for Tyson Strachan. Meszaros has been horrendous all season but head coach Ted Nolan will want to keep his veterans somewhat fresh. The hope is that dressing Meszaros against the team that drafted him will provide some extra motivation. Don't get your hopes up, though. Meszaros has six points in 34 games this season and can't even maintain a spot on one of the worst blue lines in the league. He has very little value in fantasy and may very well be forced to finish his career in Europe before long.

Meszaros will sit for the second straight game Thursday against St. Louis, reports The Buffalo News.

Meszaros didn't play in Montreal and will sit again as a healthy scratch against St. Louis. The 29-year-old veteran has become a marginal defenseman in recent years and despite his experience, head coach Ted Nolan seems to have seen enough. Meszaros' defensive play has been poor all season, and offensively, he has just six points in 34 games. He's having the worst season of his career and with the trade deadline approaching, may be dangled as trade bait, but his value isn't very high at the moment. He will sit out Thursday's game alongside Nikita Zadorov. Tyson Strachan and Andre Benoit will take their place.

Meszaros scored on his only shot in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.

It's Meszaros' first goal of the season, and the blueliner now has five points through 22 games. His playing time has been limited this season between injuries and being a healthy scratched, so the 29-year-old doesn't have a ton of fantasy value.

Meszaros (head) was on the ice for Monday's victory over the Senators, contributing an assist, three hits, two blocks and two PIM in his 14:52 of ice time.

The blueliner's status was in peril entering the match after he sustained an apparent head injury over the weekend, but he avoided missing any time -- a surprising development considering that Meszaros had dealt with a concussion earlier this month. With Mike Weber likely out until Christmastime and Josh Gorges also dealing with an injury, Meszaros could hang on to a regular role in the lineup for the next handful of games.

Meszaros suffered an apparent head injury in Saturday's win over the Panthers and will not play Monday against Ottawa, the Olean Times Herald's Bill Hoppe reports.

Meszaros will undergo further evaluation to determine the extent of the injury, which is particularly worrisome given his recent concussion. For now, he is day-to-day.

Meszaros (concussion) has been cleared to play Thursday against the Flames, but will serve as a healthy scratch.

Meszaros was able to get in a full practice Wednesday to erase any concerns about his health, but he hadn't impressed coach Ted Nolan with his performance this season prior to suffering the head injury. He'll likely get an opportunity in the next handful of case to stake his claim to a regular spot in the lineup, though it's unlikely to yield any meaningful fantasy production.

Meszaros (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Meszaros had been limited to non-contact work the last couple of days, but his full participation in practice suggests that a return may be on the horizon. He'll have a shot at suiting up Thursday against the Flames if he endures no further concussion symptoms prior to the Sabres' gameday skate.

Meszaros (concussion) was on the ice for practice Monday wearing a non-contact jersey, reports the Times Herald's Bill Hoppe.

He's sat out four consecutive games since suffering the injury Nov. 28 against Montreal, but appears to be approaching a return. Once he gets a full-contact practice in, Meszaros should get back into game action.

Meszaros is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Lightning with a concussion.

It's believed that Meszaros acquired the head injury during Friday's game against the Canadiens, which forced him to sit out the rematch on Saturday. Fortunately, the Sabres will get Josh Gorges (knee) back from injury to bolster their blue line Tuesday, but it's uncertain when Meszaros might return. He has yet to resume skating since Friday.
