Thompson has started to emerge

After a rough start to the season, Tage Thompson is starting to become an offensive force for the Sabres Tage Thompson was one of the key pieces that came back to the Buffalo Sabres in the trade for Ryan O’Reilly last summer. The 20-year-old came to the Sabres with potential but was a raw prospect that needed some time to develop. He made the team out of training camp, but it got off to a rough start for the former first-round pick. Thompson struggled with turnovers early and wasn’t providing the scoring to offset his defensive issues. The slow start resulted in a three-week stretch...

Sabres’ Tage Thompson learning to utilize big body

BUFFALO – Not long before Sabres winger Tage Thompson began his freshman year at UConn, he was 6-foot-1 and 160 pounds. Then Thompson experienced a growth spurt over the summer of 2015.

Recap: Sabres fail to end 2018 on a high note

Eichel absent in heartbreaking home loss Just hours before the 2019 ball drop, the Sabres set out to battle against the New York Islanders - and former Buffalo goaltender Robin Lehner - in search of a much needed win on home ice. Unfortunately, Sabres fans left Key Bank Center disappointed after the the final scoreboard read 3-1 in favor of New York.

A Triad of Potential Sabres Trade Targets

A Triad of Potential Sabres Trade Targets

With the trade deadline a few months away, the Sabres will likely be buyers this year It is no secret the Buffalo Sabres’ forward group needs a spark. The secondary scoring group of Casey Mittelstadt, Conor Sheary, Kyle Okposo, Tage Thompson and company are just not cutting it. And while the top line continues to make things irrationally top-heavy, moves will have to be made in the new year to balance out the seesaw.

Recap: Sabres fall flat out of holiday break, lose to Blues

Buffalo’s return to the ice post-holiday break was not a gift to the waiting fans. The return to St. Louis for ex-Blues Carter Hutton, Tage Thompson and Vladmir Sobotka did not go to plan. Buffalo flew in this morning for tonight’s Blues game and the result certainly showed. The Sabres struggled the entire night to keep up with the Blues’ overall game. Throughout the first period, back-and-forth chances were exchanged with Buffalo ending the period with the upper-hand on shots but the game headed into the first intermission scoreless. The second period is when the wheels absolutely...
