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.
