The Sabres signed Rasmus Dahlin to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Dahlin was the first overall pick at this year’s draft and will be on the Sabres’ blueline this year. Dahlin is one of the biggest defensive prospects the NHL has seen in recent years and he immediately improves Buffalo’s back-end. The 18-year-old had seven goals and 13 assists (20 points) in 41 games with Frolunda HC last season and has the ability to be a double-digit goal-scorer with 20-plus assists in his rookie season.
The Sabres have acquired Patrik Berglund, Tage Thompson, Vladimir Sobotka, a 2019 first-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick from the Blues for Ryan O’Reilly.

The Sabres have signed Carter Hutton to a three-year deal worth $8.25M ($2.75M AAV).
Hutton had an excellent 2018 season, going 17-7-3 with a 2.09 GAA, .931 SV% and three shutouts in 32 games with the Blues. Over the last three seasons, Hutton is tied for first in GAA (2.25) among goalies with at least 60 starts—posting a .922 SV%. Now with the Sabres, Hutton has the chance to become their No.1 netminder, but he will have to outplay Linus Ullmark.

The Sabres have selected Rasmus Dahlin with the No.1 overall pick.
Dahlin is the can’t miss prospect of this year’s draft. He has the size of Victor Hedman, the skating of Erik Karlsson and makes the game look simple like Nicklas Lidstrom. The 18-year-old had seven goals and 13 assists (20 points) in 41 games with Frolunda in Sweden’s top league. He picked up six assists in seven games during the World Juniors as well. He’ll be on the Buffalo blueline in 2019.
Hutton will start Friday in Chicago.

The Sabres have recalled Alexander Nylander from Rochester (AHL).
Nylander, 20, was the No.8 overall pick in 2016 and is coming off of a decent year with the Americans. Nylander has picked up seven goals and 19 assists (26 points) in 48 games this season and is expected to make his season debut in the final week of the season. Nylander had one assist in four games with the Sabres a season ago.
Antipin has been diagnosed with a concussion in addition to facial lacerations, a broken nose and dental injuries.
Antipin was stretchered off of the ice after absorbing a hit from Predators’ forward Scott Hartnell. Antipin will be sidelined for a good chunk of time and could miss the last week of the regular season.

Ullmark (undisclosed) is not progressing as fast as the Sabre hoped; remains day-to-day.
Hutton (neck) declared himself ready to return after Monday’s practice.
The Sabres have signed Casey Mittelstadt to a three-year entry-level contract.
Mittelstadt, 19, was the Sabres’ first-round pick (No.8 overall) in 2017 and will turn pro after just one year at the University of Minnesota. Mittelstadt finished his freshman campaign with 11 goals and 19 assists (30 points) in 34 games. He is expected to report to the Sabres and should make his NHL debut down the stretch.
Hutton (neck) has been ruled out for Friday and Saturday’s games; will be re-evaluated next week.
Girgensons will draw back into the Sabres' lineup on Friday.
Ullmark will start Friday vs. the Canadiens.
Ullmark allowed one goal on 13 shots after replacing Chad Johnson in the Sabres 4-1 loss to the Coyotes on Wednesday. In three NHL appearances this season, Ullmark has posted a 2.40 GAA and .933 SV% and makes for a decent spot-start option tonight vs. the visiting Canadiens—Montreal has lost four in a row and nine of their last 10 (1-7-2).
