Tage Thompson, Sabres out to keep offense going vs. Penguins

Tage Thompson is turning into the star the Buffalo Sabres hoped for when they acquired him in 2018.

Coming off a historic offensive performance, Thompson will try to stay hot and help the Sabres to a third straight win overall while facing the visiting Penguins on Friday.

After posting career highs in goals (38), assists (30) and points (68) in 2021-22, his fifth NHL season, Thompson has built on that success through the first two months of the current campaign. With 21 goals and 40 points in 26 games this season, the 6-foot-7, stick-handling standout ranks among the league's offensive leaders.
