All-Time Number Debate: 3 Mike Robitaille

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.


Mike Robitaille played for the Buffalo Sabres from 1971-1974.   Robitaille played a total of 236 games for the Sabres scoring 8 goals and 46 points.  Robitaille was traded to the Vancouver Canucks during the 1974 season where he would play until 1977. 

Robitaille played a total of 382 games with four different teams, Red Wings, Rangers, Sabres and Canucks.  During that time, he scored 23 goals and 128 points.  His career ended after being blindsided by Dennis Owchar of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1977. 

Robitaille now serves as a studio analyst for the Buffalo Sabres.  He started his analyst position in 1991 working alongside Brian Blessing on Hockey Hotline.  He now works alongside Kevin Sylvester during the Lexus Shootout.
