Observations:

February 2017 – The Panthers acquired the former OHL scoring leader in November in exchange for forward Logan Shaw. Sgarbossa’s impressive play in Springfield earned him a quick call-up after recording 12 points in his first 14 games. Since then, Sgarbossa has shown flashes of his offensive talent, having collected six points in 20 games with the Cats, while earning time in the top nine and on the Powerplay. He’s still a long shot to become fantasy relevant, however consistent playing time with talented young forwards should help him prove what he has to offer at the NHL level. Joel Gluss

 

March 2015Former OHL scoring champion, Michael Sgarbossa is moving organizations after the Colorado Avalanche sent him to Anaheim for prospect defenseman Mat Clark. Through parts of three AHL seasons, Sgarbossa is on a downward trend in his production going from 44 points in 2012-13 to his current totals of four goals and 23 points in 39 games with Lake Erie. It's expected that Sgarbossa will report to Norfolk. Brendan Ross

 

March 2013 – After accumulating 36 points in 38 games, Sgarbossa earned his first NHL call up to Colorado. He was thrown straight into the fire, with almost 14 minutes in his debut and continued for two weeks gathering third-line minutes before he became an extra man in the press box. Sgarbossa now finds himself back on the bus for Lake Erie. The recent re-addition of Ryan O’Reilly holds opportunities for Sgarbossa down at the moment, but with Colorado on the outside of the playoff race and the trade deadline approaching, the Avalanche could bounce a couple veterans from the lineup and create space. Jason Banks

 

The undrafted Michael Sgarbossa has become the feel-good story among NHL prospects after finishing the 2011-12 OHL season as the top scorer. Sgarbossa is a player that has been traded twice in two different leagues within the past year – from the OHL’s Saginaw Spirit to the Sudbury Wolves and from the Sharks to the Avalanche in the NHL. Sgarbossa really found a home in Sudbury after last season’s trade scoring 62 points in only 37 games as a Wolf. His best attributes are his pro-caliber shot and his ability to muck it up at the right time. His offensive upside is limited but he works hard and has shown good progression on both sides of the puck. Sgarbossa has a knack for getting into the scoring areas and is a player that is getting better with age. Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook:   C-

Sgarbossa's stock has fallen over the last couple of years, but still could become a serviceable pro player that could land anywhere in the Top 9. Just don't hold your breath.
