Matt Moulson averaging more than a point per game in AHL

Even a three-game slump hasn't stopped Matt Moulson from being one of the most productive players in the American Hockey League.

The former Buffalo Sabres forward has 26 points in 23 games with the Ontario Reign. Moulson has six goals and 20 assists since being loaned to Los Angeles' minor-league club Dec. 5.

The 34-year-old has no points in the last three outings, but his average of 1.13 points per game is tied for seventh in the AHL heading into Saturday's home game against the Iowa Wild.

Moulson had no points in 14 games with the Sabres, who attempted to trade Moulson before waiving him in December. While his production is impressive, it would still be a chore for Buffalo to move him by the NHL trade deadline of Feb. 26 because of his contract.

Moulson's deal includes the 2018-19 season with a cap hit of $5 million, though his actual salary dips to $3 million, including a $1 million signing bonus.

Buffalo can buy him out in June for $1.33 million. He would count $3.67 million toward the Sabres' 2018-19 salary cap and $666,667 million toward the cap in 2019-20.
