Sabres sign 1st-round pick Quinn to entry-level deal

Forward was drafted with the 8th overall selection at the 2020 NHL Draft

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

The Buffalo Sabres have signed first-round pick Jack Quinn to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Monday.

The Sabres selected Quinn with the eighth overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. The forward is coming off a 52-goal, 89-point campaign in 62 games with the Ontario Hockey League's Ottawa 67s in 2019-20. 

"Jack's a Sabre," Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams said after selecting Quinn. "I mean, I just felt like the work that our staff did in preparing was really important to understand his game. 

"… You see the ability for him to keep getting better. His athleticism is high. Just a lot of the metrics that we look at when we're scouting, he met and some. This was just a player that, the more work we did, the more excited we got."
