Pominville was skating on the first line Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville's provided very good returns for Buffalo this season with 13 points in 21 games, and he's become a staple on Jack Eichel's right wing. The pair have played together for much of the season, and even though Eichel's been struggling to score goals, the same can't be said for Pominville. However, despite Pominville's increased scoring rate, note that his 15.4 shooting percentage is his highest rate in 10 seasons, and nearly five percent higher than his career average. The law of averages says the 34-year-old will regress at some point, but Buffalo will continue to deploy him in the top six as long as he's scoring. Pominville is a short-term fantasy solution on a team that has yet to find its footing on offense.

Pominville scored his sixth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville continues to deliver points and now sits with 12 in as many games. It was a low shot on a push pass from Jack Eichel, who was first to a loose puck.

Pominville scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-4 OT win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville turns 35 in less than a month, but you'd never know it. He has 11 points in nine games and that ties him for seventh in the NHL. Yes, you read that right. Take advantage now before his knees start to creak.

With another two assists Tuesday against Vegas, Pominville has now scored two points four times in seven games this season.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville's two helpers gives him nine points in seven games, providing a nice surprise for the struggling Sabres. He's established excellent chemistry with Evander Kane and Jack Eichel, and it looks like the trio will remain together as head coach Phil Housley fiddles with the other lines. Scoring in bunches -- as Pominville is doing -- is often a sign that a player has a hot hand, so don't buy into a resurgent Pominville just yet. He hasn't scored over 30 goals or 60 points since 2013, and it's clear that Eichel and Kane are doing most of the heavy lifting carrying the play. Pominville is worth holding in the shorter term, but remains a dicey option long-term.

Pominville scored both goals for his team in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville surprisingly has a pair of two-goal performances in his first four games back with Buffalo after totaling just 24 goals in 153 appearances with the Wild over the previous two seasons. The veteran winger will have value as long as he's skating on the top line with Jack Eichel and Zemgus Girgensons, both of whom assisted on each of Pominville's goals.

Pominville tallied two goals on three shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Canadiens on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After a few seasons in Minnesota, Pominville is back with Buffalo. He certainly made an impact in his return. That being said, Pominville has scored 13 and 11 goals in his last two seasons, so let's wait before christening this a true renaissance.

Pominville found the back of the net twice against Pittsburgh in Tuesday's 4-3 preseason victory.

EDGE Analysis

After being traded from Minnesota to Buffalo in the offseason, Pominville looked sharp in his first preseason action. However, the 34-year-old just scored a mere 13 goals the entire 2016-17 season with Minnesota, and we'll have to wait and see if he can carry this production into the 2017-18 season. The key takeaway from Tuesday's performance is that both goals were primarily assisted by Jack Eichel -- if Pominville continues developing chemistry, a likely pairing with Eichel and Evander Kane would certainly boost his point production.

The Wild traded Pominville and defenseman Marco Scandella to the Sabres on Friday in exchange for forwards Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno and a draft pick, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville was originally selected by the Sabres in the second round of the 2001 draft, and he provided the franchise with 456 points (185 goals, 271 assists) in 578 games between 2003-13. He managed a respectable .60 points per game with the Wild this past season, but toiled in the bottom six far too often, skating for an average of 14:14 per contest. A return to Buffalo could invigorate Pominville, so don't lose sight of him in fantasy drafts this fall.

Pominville contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville's line with Martin Hanzal and Nino Niederreiter combined for two goals and five points, which looks nice until it's compared to the five goals and nine points generated by Washington's top trio of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie. Still, this can only be viewed as a step in the right direction considering Pominville had potted just one goal in his previous 19 appearances. While Minnesota's third line is more skillful than most, the 34-year-old winger's 13:00 of ice time is a reminder of the limited opportunities that come with such a role.

Pominville had an assist and three shots on goal in 13:13 of ice time in Tuesday's win over San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville was a healthy scratch in Sunday's game. It looks like the time off got him back on track, but he has just four points in nine games in March.
