Sabres trade prospect Filip Cederqvist to Canadiens

The Buffalo Sabres on Thursday traded wing prospect Filip Cederqvist to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for future considerations.

The 6-foot-3, 203-pound Cederqvist, 23, compiled one goal and four points in 19 games with the Rochester Americans this season.

In a corresponding move, the Amerks traded Chris Jandric to the Laval Rocket, Montreal’s affiliate, in exchange for Noah Laaouan, a swap of defensemen playing on AHL contracts.

After spending parts of three seasons in the Swedish Hockey League, Cederqvist registered nine goals and 20 points in 55 games as an AHL rookie last year.

Right now, the Amerks have too many forwards on their roster – a whopping 16 after dealing Cederqvist – to give them all regular playing time.

The Sabres’ last regime drafted Cederqvist in the fifth round in 2019, 143rd overall.
