With the 129th pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft the Buffalo Sabres are proud to select


From Reaktor Nizhnekamsk – Bogdan Yakimov!



Bogdan has a fantastic set of tools to go with his power forward frame but what gets us really excited is his style of play, which is that of an NHL power forward. Bogdan goes to the dirty areas of the net and loves to score where it is hardest, he also thrives in the face off circle. He’s a true north and south player that has all the tools to one day make it in the NHL. We feel that Bogdan has to polish his game but he is well on his way to being a future NHLer; we feel in 1-2 years it will be the right time for Bogdan to come over to North America, by that time we feel he’ll be an offensive threat that physically intimidates opponents, and we couldn’t be happier.

With the 130th pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft the Buffalo Sabres are proud to select


From the USHL Lincoln Stars – Luke Johnson!


Johnson has been spoken about many times in the last two years about the possibility of being a first round talent, and while he has slipped this year, it’s no mystery as to why he was mentioned with such high praise. Johnson has been on our radar for a while, he is a hard working two way forward, with high end work ethic, and stellar character to boot; he was selected to be captain for the USHL/NHL Top Prospects game along with three others. He has excellent speed, excellent acceleration, great hockey IQ, however what really makes him dangerous is his lethal shot which he uses often to fool net minders. We feel that Johnson has a future in the NHL, and while he’ll take all the time he needs to round out his game, we are very excited by what he has to offer, and we can see him wearing a letter on his jersey in the future. This is a great day for the Buffalo Sabres.

Next GM Pmd.
