The Buffalo Sabres traded two draft picks to move up to 14th overall.
With the 14th overall pick, the Sabres selected center Zemgus Girgensons!
Here’s what the NHL said about Girgensons.
“Girgensons is the type of player you would love to have on your team, but hate to play against. His physical brand of hockey, work ethic and hunger for the puck is unrivalled by any player in the USHL and arguably his draft class. Girgensons plays the game the only way he knows how – in your face and full throttle – as he goes through players rather than around them… The opposition has to constantly be alert when he is on the ice, as he will hit with authority and can also burn a team on the scoresheet with his hands.”
