Sabres Alert

New year, new numbers

Many players donning different jersey numbers this season for Buffalo

Hockey season is finally back, and if you’re like us, you might be a little confused when you see #9 on the ice and it’s not Evander Kane, or #26 and it’s not Matt Moulson.

Rasmus Dahlin #26 – Matt Moulson, Thomas Vanek and Derek Plante were just some of many to wear #26, but now it’s Dahlin’s turn. 

Jeff Skinner #53 – Only one Sabres player has ever worn this number, and that would be Mark Pysyk in 2013.

Conor Sheary #43 -Sheary will be the fifth Sabre to wear #43. He’ll join Francois Guay, Jason Dawe, Martin Biron, and Dan Catenacci.

Vladimir Sobotka #17 – Hopefull can Sobotka can avoid repeating the torment of this Sabres number. It’s been a rough go for most of the recent players who have worn it, including, Jordan Nolan, David Legwand, Torrey Mitchell, Linus Omark, Raffi Torres, Dominic Moore, and Marc-Andre Gragnani.

Jack Eichel #9 – This shouldn’t take too long to get used to, but maybe for a little bit since Kane had it. Erik Rasmussen, Steve Ott, and Derek Roy also wore it, along with 15 others.

Zach Bogosian #4 – He was #47, but after Josh Gorges went unsigned, Bogosian elected to go with #4. Jamie McBain, Joe Finley, Steve Montador, and Mike Weber also wore it.

Tage Thompson #72 – One of the newer Sabres picks an unusual number that only one other Buffalo players used. That was Luke Adam from 2011-2014.

Patrik Berglund #10 – Jacob Josefson was wearing it, but he’s no longer on the club. Berglund will become the 10th player to wear #10 for Buffalo.

Carter Hutton #40 – No, that’s not Robin Lehner in goal. It’s also not Patrick Lalime or Rumun Ndur. Hutton is the seventh player to wear #40.

Remi Elie #81 – The newest Sabre will wear the number that Miroslav Satan made popular. Him and Brayden McNabb were the only ones to wear it, so Elie would be the third.

Kevin founded the site in 2008 and it has taken off ever since. He graduated from Buffalo State College with a bachelor's degree in journalism.
