Sabres 2015 draft order now set
With the second round of the playoffs over, the Sabres draft picks are now locked in.
The Buffalo Sabres will, once again, have a boatload of draft picks in the 2015 NHL Draft, and now that the second round of the playoffs is completed, we know exactly where those picks will be.
The Sabres obviously have their own pick at #2 overall, and their second first rounder, the one they got from the Islanders in the Thomas Vanek trade, will happen at #21. Their other first rounder, the one from St. Louis acquired in the Miller/Ott deal, is set at #25 and will be sent to the Winnipeg Jets per the terms of the Evander Kane trade.
With five picks in the first two rounds, and the #2 overall selection, the Sabres have plenty of ammunition to either move around in the draft, trade for established players (goalie anyone?) or simply continue to stock one of the league's best farm systems.
The full list of Sabres draft picks is below:
#21 (from NYI)
#51 (from NYI)
