Top John-Jason Peterka News

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scores Monday

    Peterka tallied a power-play goal in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Canadiens.

    Peterka tied the game 2-2 with a power-play marker in the second period, beating Jake Allen from a sharp angle. The 21-year-old Peterka has been productive of late, recording nine points (two goals, seven assists) in his last nine games. The German forward is up to 10 goals and 30 points through 68 contests this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two helpers Friday

    Peterka collected two assists in Friday's 5-4 win over the Devils.

    Both helpers came in the first period as the Sabres jumped out to a 3-1 lead before the 11-minute mark and chased Akira Schmid from the game. Peterka has three multi-point performances in his last seven games, and the 21-year-old has been clicking on a kid line with the 22-year-old Dylan Cozens and the 21-year-old Jack Quinn. Despite his meager totals on the season (nine goals and 29 points through 66 games), Peterka could provide fantasy rosters with a late boost for the stretch run.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scratched Friday

    Peterka is a healthy scratch Friday against the Flyers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Peterka has five points over his last four games and it's a bit surprising that he's being scratched. Victor Olofsson will skate on the second line in his absence. It's unclear if Peterka will be back in the lineup Sunday against Boston.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two assists in win

    Peterka logged a pair of helpers in Monday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Peterka set up Jack Quinn's tally in the second period before assisting Dylan Cozens in the third. Peterka now has four assists over his last three games, though he's tallied just one goal in his last 33 contests. The 21-year-old rookie has eight goals and 17 assists through 62 games this season. While his production has been inconsistent, Peterka is worth monitoring while playing alongside Dylan Cozens and Jack Quinn on Buffalo's second line.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Two-point effort in loss

    Peterka recorded two assists in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Stars.

    The 21-year-old gets overlooked among all the other gifted young forwards on the Sabres' roster, but Peterka has some offensive talent of his own. A second-round pick in 2020, he has a goal and four points in his last five games for Buffalo while skating in a middle-six role and seeing second-unit power-play time, and he's up to 23 points (eight goals and 15 helpers) through 60 games in his first full NHL season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Already back with Sabres

    Peterka was called up by Buffalo from AHL Rochester on Thursday.

    Peterka spent less than a day in the minors before rejoining the Sabres. He has seven goals and 18 points in 41 contests with Buffalo while averaging 13:58 of ice time this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Shifted down to minors

    Peterka was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday.

    Peterka figured to be the odd man out of the lineup against the Islanders on Thursday, so the Sabres processed a paper move to allow them to recall starter Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen from the minors. The 21-year-old Peterka is unlikely to actually report to AHL Rochester and should continue to practice with the Sabres instead. He could be officially added back onto the roster as early as Friday.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Puts up assist

    Peterka logged an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

    Peterka was a healthy scratch for the last two games amid a stretch where he produced just two helpers in nine appearances. He took it well and made an impact in his return to the lineup Saturday, setting up Dylan Cozens' second-period tally. Peterka has 18 points, 60 shots on net, 20 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 39 outings as a rookie this season. He'll likely continue to see middle-six minutes, though if he slumps again, he could receive another trip to the press box.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Dishes out two helpers

    Peterka was credited with two assists during a 6-3 victory over the visiting Red Wings on Thursday.

    Peterka, who made a scoresheet for the first time in 10 games, aided Casey Mittelstadt on both of his goals against the Red Wings. Peterka, a 2020 second-round draft pick, earned the first multi-point game of his 35-game career. Well-rested from the Sabres' 10-day layoff, Peterka added three shots and two PIM in the win.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Finds twine Sunday

    Peterka scored a goal on five shots and went plus-2 in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

    Peterka has points in six of his last seven games, amassing three goals and three helpers in that span. The rookie winger's tally tied the game at 2-2 early in the second period after the Sabres' rough start. Peterka is connecting well with fellow youngsters Dylan Cozens and Jack Quinn on the Sabres' second line. For the season, Peterka has six goals, eight assists, 38 shots, 12 PIM and a plus-3 rating in 25 outings.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Produces helper in win

    Peterka notched an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Red Wings.

    Peterka set up the second of Dylan Cozens' two goals in the contest. He's still looking for a multi-point outing, but Peterka has a goal and three assists over the last five games while finding some stability on the second line. The German winger has four goals, eight assists, 31 shots on goal, 10 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 23 appearances this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Scores fourth career tally

    Peterka scored a goal on one lone shot in Tuesday's convincing 7-2 win over the Canadiens.

    Peterka had success in finding the back of the net to give Buffalo an early 2-0 lead less than one minute into the contest. At only 20 years old, the right winger is beginning to make some noise, as he has accumulated nine points in 19 games this season.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Garners power-play helper in loss

    Peterka recorded an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Peterka set up Rasmus Dahlin's goal in the final seconds of the game. The assist gave Peterka a modest three-game point streak -- it's the second time this year he's gotten on the scoresheet that many times in a row, with a four-game drought in between. While he's been a little streaky, the 20-year-old is fitting in well with the Sabres in a middle-six role. He has three goals, four helpers, 17 shots on net, six PIM and a plus-1 rating through 11 contests.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Offers helper

    Peterka recorded an assist and added three shots on goal in Monday's 8-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Peterka started the year with points in four straight games, but he followed it up with a four-game drought that he snapped with a helper Monday. The ups and downs are to be expected for a 20-year-old getting his first extended look at the NHL level. The German has two goals, three assists, 16 shots on net, six PIM and a minus-1 rating in nine outings and should continue to see steady time on the third line as he adjusts.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Snags assist Thursday

    Peterka recorded an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Flames.

    Peterka set up Rasmus Dahlin's go-ahead goal in the first period. This was Peterka's fourth straight game with a point (two goals, two assists) to begin what's likely to be his first full NHL campaign. The 20-year-old winger has added five shots on net and a plus-1 rating while finding success on the Sabres' third line. His strong offense to start the year has given the Sabres' forward group more depth as they enjoy another hot October.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Nets goal

    Peterka scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Peterka has two goals in three contests to begin his rookie campaign. He got it done on a breakaway in the second period Tuesday, with his tally standing as the game-winner. The 20-year-old has added five shots on net, a plus-1 rating and two PIM so far while logging bottom-six minutes. A second-round pick from 2020, Peterka could push his way up the roster if he continues to play well.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Sharp finish for first NHL goal

    Peterka scored his first NHL goal Thursday in a 4-1 victory over the Senators.

    Peterka converted on a sweet give-and-go with Dylan Cozens, who threaded the puck under Sens defenseman Jake Sanderson's stick. It was his third NHL game. Peterka scored at a near point-per-game pace in the AHL last season and already seems to have some chemistry with Cozens and Peyton Krebs on what may potentially be one of the top kid lines in the NHL.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Secures roster spot

    Peterka is on Buffalo's Opening Night roster.

    After being drafted in the second round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, Peterka scored 28 goals and 68 points in 70 AHL games last season. He also made his NHL debut but was held scoreless in two games. The 20-year-old should jump into a middle-six role with the Sabres to begin the year.

  • Sabres' John-Jason Peterka: Sees plenty of preseason action

    Peterka was in the lineup for five of Buffalo's six preseason games to get more accustomed to NHL competition, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    "This game here was a different level than earlier preseason games obviously because of their lineup," said coach Don Granato after a 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh in the Sabres' preseason finale. "And that'll be the case through the early going." Peterka is expected to stay with the Sabres going into the 2022-23 campaign after he appeared in just two NHL regular-season games last year. The 20-year-old forward racked up 28 goals and 68 points in 70 AHL contests for Rochester in 2021-22.
