    Pominville scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Boston.

    Impact

    Pominville turns 35 in less than a month, but you'd never know it. He has 11 points in nine games and that ties him for seventh in the NHL. Yes, you read that right. Take advantage now before his knees start to creak.

    News

    With another two assists Tuesday against Vegas, Pominville has now scored two points four separate times in seven games this season.

    Impact

    Pominville's two helpers give him nine points in seven games, providing a nice surprise for the struggling Sabres. He's established excellent chemistry with Evander Kane and Jack Eichel, and it looks like the trio will remain together as head coach Phil Housley fiddles with the other lines. Scoring in bunches -- as Pominville is doing -- is often a sign that a player has a hot hand, so don't buy into a resurgent Pominville just yet. He hasn't scored over 30 goals or 60 points since 2013, and it's clear that Eichel and Kane are doing most of the heavy lifting carrying the play. Pominville is worth holding in the shorter term, but remains a dicey option long term.

    Pominville had two goals and finished at a plus-1 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Impact

    After totaling just 24 goals in the past two seasons with Minnesota, Pominville already has four through four games of his second stint in a Sabres uniform.

    News

    Pominville scored both goals for his team in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Impact

    Pominville surprisingly has a pair of two-goal performances in his first four games back with Buffalo after totaling just 24 goals in 153 appearances with the Wild over the previous two seasons. The veteran winger will have value as long as he's skating on the top line with Jack Eichel and Zemgus Girgensons, both of whom assisted on each of Pominville's goals.
