Baptiste traded to Predators

The Buffalo Sabres traded forward Nick Baptiste to the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenseman Jack Dougherty.

Dougherty was drafted 51st overall in 2014 and has been playing for the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL for the past few seasons.

Baptiste has bounced between Rochester and Buffalo, but will now get a shot in Nashville.

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.
