The latest Buffalo Sabres related shirt from our friends over at Breaking T just launched!
Check out the newest design, celebrating Sabres forward Alex Tuch:
The 26-year-old is in his first full season with the Sabres and has already made quite an impact in Buffalo in his short time. Last season, in 50 games, he recorded 38 points, including 26 assists. This season, through just six games as of writing, he’s already potted six goals and a total of seven points and is averaging 18:21 ice time per night.
Through 311 career NHL games, he’s put up 184 points.
Generally, the Sabres as a team are having a strong start to the season. Through six games, they’re 4-2-0, tied for third in the Atlantic Division. While there’s certainly some room for improvement, including in the special teams - both units of which are near the bottom of the league - it hasn’t been a bad start by any means.
