All-Time Number Debate: 3 Calle Johansson

So many Sabres have come and gone in the organization over the past 39 years.  But who was the best wearing their number.  This is going to settle that debate.  Using the Buffalo Sabres Alumni listing of all-time uniform numbers we will post a player a day based on their number.  After a certain uniform number is up, we put the vote to you.

Calle Johansson was drafted 14th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1985 Entry Draft.  He was a highly touted Swedish defenseman that had played extensively overseas before being drafted.  Johansson played a season and a half for the Sabres before he was traded to the Capitals for Clint Malarchuk, Grant Ledyard and a second and sixth round pick.

During his time as a Sabre, Johansson played a total of 118 games while scoring 6 goals and 55 points.  His rookie season, Johansson's 42 points got him named to the all-rookie team. 

Johansson played for a total of 17 seasons in the NHL, most of those with the Capitals and finishing his career with the Leafs.  Johansson played a total of 1108 games recording 119 goals and 535 points.  He retired after the 2003-04 season.

Johansson now is a color commentator for Canal+ doing both Eliteserian games and NHL games.
