2015 NHL Draft Round One Open Thread: Who will the Buffalo Sabres draft?
Tonight is the most important off-ice moment in Sabres franchise history since 1970. Come watch with us, friends.
Tonight is the night. The night we've been waiting for as Sabres fans literally for years. The 2015 NHL Draft begins tonight, and the Sabres hold the #2 pick, which will almost certainly become future superstar center Jack Eichel.

The Buffalo Sabres hold the following picks in the 2015 draft:
Round 1: Friday, June 26 at 7:00 PM ET
Television: Sportsnet (Canada) and NBCSN (USA)
