Sabres Daily: Dahlin In Top 10; Central Puckdoku Cheatcodes



As we crawl day-by-day towards the start of training camps around the NHL, NHL Network decided to rank the top players by position in the league and not surprisingly, Buffalo Sabres blueliner Rasmus Dahlin is ranked among the best defensemen.


Dahlin, who finished with a career-high 73 points last season for the Sabres and finished eighth in Norris Trophy voting, was ranked seventh ahead of 2023 Norris winner Erik Karlsson. The Sabres reportedly have been working on an extension with Dahlin over the summer, but there have been no indications that a deal is imminent.

Sabres In Case You Missed It

The game Puckdoku seems to be a hit with hockey fans, especially during the summer when there is little or no hockey news. The object of the game is to match up a player who played for two teams, but to pick the most obscure or unique player to increase your uniqueness score. Here are a few ex-Sabres that would help you in that pursuit. Today we’ll tackle the Central Division:

Arizona and Buffalo – Daniel Briere, John Scott, Jamie McGinn

Chicago and Buffalo – Christian Ruuttu, Adam Creighton, Anders Bjork
