This amounts to a bridge deal for Reinhart, who still must prove that he can overcome his defensive shortcomings. He registered a career-high 50 points (25 goals, 25 assists) -- including 21 power-play points -- over 82 games last season, but he posted an egregious minus-24 rating along with it. From a fantasy perspective, however, those strong totals undoubtedly outweigh Reinhart's deficiencies in the defensive zone.

Reinhart was tendered a qualifying offer during the offseason, but after racking up 25 goals and 50 points last year, the youngster was unlikely to sign an offer sheet. Depending on how long the winger remains away from the team, the Sabres could opt to move either Conor Sheary or Kyle Okposo onto the top line with Jack Eichel.
