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.

After making a trade earlier today for Robin Lehner, the Sabres no longer have the #21 pick, but still have plenty of ammunition to make a move back into the first round or for another player such as Ryan O'Reilly.

The Buffalo Sabres hold the following picks in the 2015 draft:

31, 51

Round 1: Friday, June 26 at 7:00 PM ET

Television: Sportsnet (Canada) and NBCSN (USA)
