Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Scores goal in finale
Krebs recorded a goal in a 5-2 victory over Columbus on Friday.
Krebs didn't get a tally over his previous 28 contests, though he did register nine assists in that span. With the 2022-23 campaign in the books, Krebs has finished with nine goals, 26 points, 78 shots and 93 hits. The 22-year-old surpassed his 2021-22 totals of seven goals and 22 points, but that's mostly thanks to him jumping from 57 appearances last season to 74 games in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Earns assist as Sabres prevail
Krebs registered an assist in Friday's 5-4 win over the Devils.
Krebs has eight goals and 15 assists, topping his rookie output by a single point, though it's taken him 15 more games to get there. There's untapped potential with Krebs -- who was the No. 17 overall pick by the Golden Knights in 2019 and ultimately packaged in the Jack Eichel trade -- but the Sabres are easing him in as a fourth-line pivot with occasional looks on the power play....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: First multi-point game in a month
Krebs dished out two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Capitals.
Krebs posted his first multi-point performance in exactly one month, and Feb. 15 was also the last time he scored a goal. The 22-year-old forward has yet to produce consistently at the NHL level, but Krebs has shown flashes of the talent that prompted Vegas to draft him 17th overall in 2019 before trading him to Buffalo, so it's too early to write him off completely....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Collects two points against Ducks
Krebs scored a goal on two shots, added an assist, went plus-2 and logged two hits in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Ducks.
Krebs responded to three straight goals from the Ducks in the second period. The 22-year-old center also set up Casey Mittelstadt's go-ahead tally late in the frame, which stood as the game-winner. Krebs has two goals and two assists over his last five contests, and he's up to 16 points, 43 shots, 53 hits, 36 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 45 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Tallies on power play
Krebs scored a power-play goal on two shots, logged two hits and added two PIM in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.
Krebs snapped his six-game goal drought with the third-period marker. The 22-year-old was bumped down to the fourth line to begin this game, but he still logged 15:59 of ice time. The center is up to seven tallies, 14 points, 41 shots on net, 51 hits, 36 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 44 contests. This was the first power-play goal of his career.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Lights lamp twice against Ducks
Krebs scored two goals in Saturday's 6-3 win over Anaheim.
After tapping home a loose puck in front of the Ducks net midway through the second period, Krebs fired a laser over John Gibson's glove in the third to wrap up the scoring on the afternoon. It's the second multi-goal game of the 21-year-old's career, with the other coming last March against the Leafs, and on the season Krebs has six goals and 12 points through 37 games. The 17th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft still has upside, but as long as he remains in a bottom-six role for the Sabres, his fantasy value will remain sketchy.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Contributes goal Tuesday
Krebs provided a goal in Buffalo's 4-3 overtime loss to Chicago on Tuesday.
Krebs scored at 6:21 of the second period to put Buffalo up 3-1. He has four goals and 10 points in 35 contests with Buffalo this season. Krebs, who was called back up by the Sabres on Tuesday, had an assist in his previous seven NHL outings.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Right back with big club
Krebs was recalled by the Sabres on Tuesday.
Although he's been promoted, at this point it isn't clear if Krebs will enter the lineup for Tuesday's game versus Chicago. The 21-year-old forward has picked up nine points through 34 top-level appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Heads back to AHL
Krebs was assigned to AHL Rochester on Monday, Heather Engel of NHL.com reports.
Krebs was called up Sunday as part of Buffalo's lineup shuffling to keep goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen in the lineup. The 23-year-old netminder was recalled from the minors Monday in a corresponding move. Coach Don Granato expects Krebs to be back in the big club Tuesday to play against Chicago.... See More ...

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Recalled Sunday
Krebs was called up from AHL Rochester on Sunday.
Krebs will rejoin the Sabres just two days after he was sent down to the AHL. The 21-year-old forward has three goals and six assists in 34 games this season. He should continue to play a bottom-six role, that is if he's not a healthy scratch. Goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was sent down in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: AHL bound
Krebs was loaned to AHL Rochester on Friday.
Krebs has three goals and six assists in 34 games this season but only one assist in his last seven contests. The 2019 first-round pick of the Golden Knights was an integral part of the Jack Eichel trade last season, but the Sabres were using him as a fourth-line center and he needs to see more time as a top-six forward, something he will see if he remains in Rochester. The Sabres recalled Jack Quinn in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Supplies helper in win
Krebs notched an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Krebs helped out on a Lawrence Pilut goal at 13:28 of the second period, which was the game-winner. After a shaky first couple of months, Krebs has racked up three goals and a helper in his last seven games despite seeing limited usage on the fourth line. The 21-year-old center now has seven points, 23 shots on net, 26 hits, 16 PIM and a minus-1 rating in 26 appearances, though it's unclear if his uptick in offense will earn him a larger role in the near future....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Finally breaks through
Krebs has scored three goals in the past five games.
Krebs got off to a sluggish start offensively with just three assists in his first 19 outings. He has heated up since then despite averaging just 12:04 of ice time on Buffalo's fourth line. Krebs has also been credited with 20 shots on goal and 21 hits through 24 contests this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Sends assist in win
Krebs notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 8-3 win over the Red Wings.
The helper was Krebs' first point since Opening Night. The 21-year-old has been healthy scratched twice and dropped to the fourth line while losing his power-play time, so his outlook has dimmed significantly since the season began. He's added only four shots on net with five hits, six PIM and an even plus-minus rating in seven contests -- the lack of offense is discouraging after he put up 22 points in 57 games between the Sabres and the Golden Knights last year....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Remains goalless
Krebs hasn't scored a goal in four games this season.
Krebs picked up an assist in Buffalo's season opener, but he hasn't earned a point in his past three games. He has only two shots on net so far, which isn't a recipe for success in the offensive end. Krebs still occupies a spot on the second power-play unit despite dropping to the fourth line. He scored seven times with 46 shots on goal over 48 contests with the Sabres last campaign....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Heading to minors
Krebs will play with AHL Rochester during the Calder Cup Playoffs, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Krebs tallied 15 points in 18 games with AHL Rochester this season and added 22 through 48 appearances at the NHL level. The 21-year-old will get some extra reps during the AHL postseason and should have no trouble making the NHL roster to begin the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Producing with extra man
Krebs had two power-play assists in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.
Krebs has seven points in his last 10 games, and six of those have come on the power play. The 17th overall selection in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft has the skills to capitalize on the extra time and space afforded to him when the Sabres go up a man, but Krebs still looks overmatched at times at even strength, as evidenced by his minus-17 rating through 44 games with Buffalo....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Two tallies against Leafs
Krebs scored two goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
He potted Buffalo's first goal early in the second period, then added an insurance tally in the third. Krebs continues to flash the talent that made him the 17th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, and over the last month the 21-year-old has three goals and nine points in 14 games while finding a home on the Sabres' second line....

Sabres' Peyton Krebs: Elevated from AHL Rochester
