Former Sabre Andreychuk named to Hockey Hall of Fame

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Dave Andreychuk said this day began just like any other year. Until it wasn't.

Andreychuk knew it was Hall of Fame announcement day; he always does. But after eight years of not receiving the call, he'd begun to treat the day like it was business as usual. On this particular occasion, he was leaving to pick his wife up from the airport - she was flying back from Buffalo - when his phone rang. A 416 area code appeared on the screen - Toronto. 

His heart beginning to race, Andreychuk pulled over to the side of the road and answered the call.

Botterill recaps a 'balanced' Draft, looks ahead to free agency

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

CHICAGO - Following a busy six weeks of getting to know a brand new scouting staff and preparing a list of prospects, Jason Botterill's first Draft as an NHL general manager is officially in the books. It began with the selection of Casey Mittelstadt on Friday and ended with Linus Weissbach being taken in the seventh round on Saturday. 

In between, the Sabres took who they believe to be a high-end forward in Marcus Davidsson and used other picks to begin replenishing organizational depth at the goalie and defense positions. All in all, Botterill seemed fairly pleased with his first go-around.
