Pominville registered an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Oilers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville has found himself on the third line in recent games, and it was there that he earned the secondary helper on a Casey Mittelstadt goal. Over his last 10 games, Pominville has two goals and three assists while firing 18 shots on goal. The 36-year-old winger has racked up 28 points in 60 contests this season, and he should finish the season around 35 points barring an injury down the stretch.

Pominville scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal in Tuesday's victory over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville is playing on the top line alongside Jack Eichel, and he's producing more as a result. Pominville has three points -- all goals -- in his past six contests. He had just a goal and an assist in the previous 22 games. He's up to 23 points in 50 games, and has value as long as he doesn't move down the depth chart.

Pominville picked up a goal in Friday's loss to Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville had been held pointless in his past four outings, leading to him being scratched for Wednesday's game against Dallas. It was just his second goal in 25 games, leaving him with 11 on the season. He has gradually become less effective as the months have gone by, losing stock in fantasy leagues across the board.

Pominville, who failed to score in 8:38 of ice time Saturday against the Bruins, has scored only one goal in 23 games since Nov. 3 and was recently moved to the fourth line, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville started the year hot -- at one point he had 13 points over a seven-game stretch -- but that's when he was skating with Jack Eichel on the top line, and his game has regressed tremendously since. He's averaging a career-low 12:45 of ice time and has played less than nine minutes the last two games, even with the Sabres scrambling for forward help with Eichel on the shelf. Pominville has also seen just 14 seconds of power-play time over the last 10 games combined, while he rarely skates in overtime games because, at 36 years of age, he can no longer keep up with younger, speedier players. He's a great locker-room presence for an up-and-coming team and there's still a role for him, it's just not one that relates to fantasy production any longer.

Pominville (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Bruins, Jourdon LaBarber of Sabres.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville is expected to return to a bottom-six role, skating with Vladimir Sobotka and Tage Thompson on the Sabres' third line. The veteran forward has been a solid source of secondary scoring for Buffalo this season, notching nine goals and 18 points in 33 contests, but he's nothing more than a low-end bench option in most fantasy formats.

Pominville (undisclosed) practiced Friday and could return to action Saturday against the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville could end up being a game-time decision for Saturday's contest, so owners considering slotting him into their lineups will want to check back prior to puck drop for confirmation on his status. If he's able to go, Pominville will likely Zemgus Girgensons from the lineup.

Pominville (undisclosed) didn't make the trip to St. Louis and will be out of the lineup for Thursday's matchup, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville is considered day-to-day by the team, although he remains on injured reserve. The fact that the club couldn't practice Wednesday appears to have weighed heavily on the decision to hold Pominville out for another game. If he can join his teammates on the ice Friday, he might be available against Boston on Saturday.

Pominville (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL Media site.

EDGE Analysis

Pominville was ruled out for Friday's game against the Capitals, but his placement on IR guarantees he will sit out Saturday against the Ducks as well. He will be eligible to return for the first game out of the holiday break next Thursday versus the Blues, while Remi Elie -- who will sub in Friday -- will presumably slot into Saturday's lineup as well.

EDGE Analysis

There was a chance that Pominville would play Friday's game, but he'll sit out in favor of Remi Elie. Pominville only played 7:20 worth of ice time before leaving Tuesday's game. His next chance to return will be Saturday versus the Ducks.

Pominville (undisclosed) was labeled day-to-day by coach Phil Housley on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The bench boss didn't provide any details regarding the nature or severity of Pominville's injury, so it's possible he could still be in action during the club's back-to-back on Friday and Saturday versus Washington and Anaheim, respectively. If the veteran is unavailable, Remi Elie figures to slot back into the lineup following a seven-game stint in the press box as a healthy scratch.
