2020 Fantasy Outlook
Asplund generated 19 points in 33 games with AHL Rochester and an additional one goal and two helpers in 29 appearances with the Sabres in 2019-20. The 23-year-old Swede faces an uphill battle for playing time entering 2020-21, as the Sabres have plenty of center depth following the arrival of Eric Staal. Perhaps there's room for Asplund to play on the wing, but he's unlikely to generate enough in any category to earn fantasy interest. A second-round pick from 2016, there's still a chance he can stick in a bottom-six role in the future. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Sabres in May of 2018.
Bounced to taxi squad
CBuffalo Sabres
February 26, 2021
Asplund was sent to the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Asplund has a goal in four games with the Sabres this season. He's danced between the taxi squad and active roster a handful of times over the last two weeks and should continue to do so as he serves as a depth forward.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Asplund begins his NHL journey after scoring 28 points in 50 games for Farjestad BK (SHL) and will likely begin the season with AHL Rochester as a 20-year-old. The Swedish center is known for his responsible two-way play and despite his young age profiles as one the team's most reliable forwards. Going forward, Asplund will be the ideal No. 3 center behind Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt, but that's more than a couple years down the road. The Sabres are rather thin at center so if help is needed don't be surprised if Asplund is called up for some short-term relief.
