Sabres trade Guhle for Montour

The Buffalo Sabres have made a move!

They’ve traded Brendan Guhle and a first-round pick to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Brandon Montour.

Montour is 24 years old and has 25 points (five goals, 20 assists) in 62 games with the Ducks this year. He is closing in on his career-high of 32 points which he set last season. 

Montour is signed through next season with a cap hit of $3,387,500.

Guhle never got much of a chance with Buffalo, playing in just 23 games over the past three seasons combined. He did record five assists and at 21 years old he couldn’t crack the lineup just yet. He’ll get his chance in Anaheim.

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.
