The Buffalo Sabres have traded away forward Hudson Fasching to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Mike Sislo and defenseman Brandon Hickey.

Hickey is just 22 years of age and is coming off a solid year with Boston University, where he served as captain and scored six goals and eight assists in 35 games. He was originally selected by the Calgary Flames in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft (3rd round, 64th overall).

Sislo has spent most of his career playing in the AHL for the Albany Devils, but has recently been on the San Antonio Rampage and the Tuscon Roadrunners. This past season, he scored 23 goals and 24 assists in 67 games for the Coyotes affiliate.

Our take: Fasching came with so much more promise than he ever showed. He had some injuries, but his time with the Sabres was underwhelming and this trade makes a lot of sense. Sislo is a nice addition for the Americans while Hickey could eventually find a role with Buffalo.
