Sharpen Up: August 13, 2018

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Rasmus Dahlin has arrived in Buffalo. 

Whether he voyaged the Atlantic via Jet Ski - equipment bag slung over his shoulder, stick in hand, garbed in gameday attire - or traveled by more conventional standards is a story that remains to be told, but the first overall pick was busy after arriving in Western New York last week. 

On Monday, Dahlin and fellow first-round pick Casey Mittelstadt took the ice as surprise guests with the Fattey Hockey League at Harborcenter. The league mixes local NHL players (Zemgus Girgensons and Alex Iafallo are among this year's participants) with college and junior players.

We're 50 days away. 

Fifty days until the Sabres open their preseason schedule against the Blue Jackets in Columbus. Fifty days until we potentially see Rasmus Dahlin share the ice with Rasmus Ristolainen or Conor Sheary bury a feed from Jack Eichel. Maybe we'll see Casey Mittelstadt skate alongside Tage Thompson. 

The good news is, training camp begins even sooner. In the meantime, here's what you need to know as July comes to a close.
