Sabres don’t sign draft pick Logan Nelson

BUFFALO – Unless there’s a late announcement coming, the Sabres didn’t sign forward Logan Nelson before today’s deadline to ink 2012 non-collegiate draft choices.

The Sabres signed all the junior and European players from that class, including goalie Linus Ullmark and defenseman Brady Austin, two prospects picked after they selected Nelson in the fifth round, 133rd overall.

Nelson had 23 goals and 54 points in 59 games with the Western Hockey League’s Victoria Royals in 2013-14. The 20-year-old compiled 60 goals and 159 points in 179 career WHL contests.

  1. I don’t really see why not to sign him. He had that injury during the season, but besides that nothing really slowed him down. Maybe they just don’t see potential in him.
