The Sabres have signed Lawrence Pilut, a 22-year-old defenseman from Sweden.

He is coming off a great year in the Swedish Hockey League, in which he recorded the most assists by a defensman with 30 along with the most points (38).

Eric Dunay from SB Nation described Pilut in a recent article:

“By all accounts, Pilut is a highly-skilled playmaker. He has a smaller frame – 179 lbs, 5’11” – but has been known to play aggressively. Interestingly enough, the reports heading into his draft year were concerned with his offensive ability, but he’s drastically improved in that area.”

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
