Buffalo Sabres News

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 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.

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.

He’ll be on the Buffalo blueline in 2019.
