Sabres Alert

Sabres trade for Wilson

After a rough week, which consisted of back-to-back losses to the Penguins and a franchise-record scoreless drought that lasted nearly four entire games, changes were needed.

Hours after waiving Matt Moulson this morning, with the likelihood of being assigned to the Rochester Americans, the Sabres acquired forward Scott Wilson from the Detroit Red Wings for a 5th-round pick in 2019.

In 123 career games played, the 25-year-old centerman has earned 32 points (13 goals, 19 assists) and a -3 rating.

This will be Wilson’s third team thus far in the year, starting with the Pittsburgh Penguins, with whom he spent his entire career, before being traded to Detroit.

He then played 17 games for the Red Wings. In 20 games played for both Pittsburgh and Detroit, he has yet to earn a point this season and has a -3 rating.

“We are very happy to add Scott to our roster,” general manager Jason Botterill said. “Scott is a hard-working, young player that will be a great fit for our club. As a two-time Stanley Cup Champion, his experience will be an asset both on and off the ice.”
