New Sabres defenseman Brandon Montour has worn No. 26 throughout his career, but with Rasmus Dahlin already donning it, Montour has elected to go with No. 62.
No Sabres player has ever worn No. 62 prior to this.

Montour is expected to be in Toronto for tonight’s game against the Maple Leafs, but it’s unlikely he will suit up. Fans will have to wait one more day for him to make his Sabres debut. Buffalo will take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.
