We’re flying through day two. The Sabres use their fifth-round pick to select Finnish defenseman Miska Kukkonen.

He’s a 6’0” and 183 pound defender. He scored to goals and four points in 12 games for Ilves U20 junior team in SM-Liiga.

Jason Botterill still has not selected a Canadian-junior player in two drafts.

Sabres up next with pick 156 in the sixth round.
