Sabres select Rasmus Dahlin

Cornerstone defenseman drafted as No. 1 overall pick

Now it’s official.

The Buffalo Sabres have added a young, promising defensive player in Rasmus Dahlin. It was a unanimous decision ever since the team won the draft lottery, and they’ve won the Dahlin sweepstakes.

“I instantly thought of Brian Leetch and his skating, especially during his years with the New York Rangers. He also had the courage to skate with the puck, use his skating and take advantage of the space when he had the chance…I can see the similarities between how they play.” – Nicklas Lidstrom
