VANCOUVER – The Buffalo Sabres selected center Dylan Cozens, a center from the Western Hockey League’s Lethbridge Hurricanes, seventh overall tonight at the NHL Draft.
Cozens, who was born and raised and Whitehorse, Yukon, would be the fourth player from the Canadian territory to play in the NHL.
The Sabres need to add depth down the middle.
The 6-foot-3, 183-pound Cozens compiled 34 goals and 84 points in 60 games last season.
Sabres general manager Jason Botterill has never drafted a player from the Canadian Hockey League.
Stay tuned for more updates. The Sabres also have the 31st pick.
