SABRES ASSIGN MOULSON TO ONTARIO

BUFFALO, N.Y. (December 5, 2017) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has assigned forward Matt Moulson to the Ontario Reign (AHL).
 
”Matt has been a true professional, especially during this difficult decision,” Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said. “Matt has previously spent time within the Kings organization early in his career and we felt this would be the best opportunity for him. From an organizational standpoint, we felt that with our young forwards in place in Rochester, we did not want to take away from their development and ice time by adding another veteran player at this time.”

SABRES ACQUIRE SCOTT WILSON

BUFFALO, N.Y. (December 4, 2017) —The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired forward Scott Wilson from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for Buffalo’s fifth round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.

Prior to being acquired by the Red Wings in a trade on Oct. 21, Wilson (5’11”, 183 lbs., 4/24/1992) played in parts of four seasons for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He totaled 26 points (8+18) in his first full NHL season in 2016-17 and appeared in 20 playoff games with the Penguins in 2017, helping the team to its second consecutive Stanley Cup.

Before joining Pittsburgh full-time for the 2016-17 season, Wilson appeared in 90 regular-season AHL games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Oakville, Ontario native has totaled 77 points (41+36) in his AHL career and led the league in goals at the time of his last recall to Pittsburgh in February 2016.

“We are very happy to add Scott to our roster,” Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said. “Scott is a hard-working, young player that will be a great fit for our club. As a two-time Stanley Cup Champion, his experience will be an asset both on and off the ice.”
