  • Buffalo is now 12-4-2 (.722) at home this season. The .722 points percentage puts the Sabres on pace for their eighth-best home record in franchise history and the best since the 1982-83 season (25-7-8, .725).
  • Linus Ullmark made 40 saves to record his second career shutout and second of the season. He became the first Sabres goaltender to record a 40-plus save shutout since Chad Johnson (44 saves) on Dec. 17, 2015 vs. Anaheim.
    • Ullmark finished the game ranked 10th in the NHL among qualifying goaltenders (min. 12 GP) with a .922 save percentage.
  • The Sabres have now shut out the Ducks eight times in the 38 all-time games between the clubs (Dominik Hasek-3, Martin Biron-2, Chad Johnson-1, Ryan Miller-1, Linus Ullmark-1). This amounts to one shutout for every 4.75 meetings, the Sabres’ highest shutout-to-games ratio against any NHL team. The next highest current ratio is 10 games per shutout (Columbus, three shutouts in 30 games).
  • Rasmus Dahlin’s goal tonight was his 20th point of the season (4+16). His 20 points in 37 games are already the 10th-most ever recorded by an NHL defenseman before his 19th birthday.
    • According to NHL PR, only three 18-year-old defensemen in NHL history have reached the 20-point mark faster than Dahlin’s 37 games: Phil Housley (28 GP), Ray Bourque (30 GP) and Aaron Ekblad (34 GP).
    • Phil Housley holds the record with 57 points (17+40) before turning 19 in 1982-83 with the Sabres.
  • With two assists tonight, Jack Eichel has tied his career high with 18 multi-point games this season. He is now tied with Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon for the league lead.
  • Sam Reinhart also recorded two assists and now has a career-best 12 on the season. The Sabres are now 16-4-3 this season when he records a point and 27-4-6 in his career when he records at least two.

SABRES ACQUIRE SHEARY, HUNWICK FROM PENGUINS

BUFFALO, N.Y. (June 27, 2018) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired forward Conor Sheary and defenseman Matt Hunwick from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.

“Conor has proven himself to be a reliable forward with an ability to come through in big games, whose playoff experience speaks for itself,” General Manager Jason Botterill said. “Conor and Matt will bring a winning pedigree to our team, and we expect them both to complement our group very well.”

Sheary (5’8”, 175 lbs., 7/8/1992) joins the Sabres after winning two Stanley Cups in his first three NHL seasons, scoring the overtime winner in Game 2 of the 2016 Stanley Cup Final against the San Jose Sharks and totaling 19 points (6+13) in 57 career postseason contests.

The Winchester, Massachusetts native played in a career-high 79 games with the Penguins in 2017-18, following up a career-best 53 points (23+30) in 61 games during the 2016-17 season. In his three seasons with Pittsburgh, Sheary totaled 93 points (48+45) in 184 regular-season games.

A native of Warren, Michigan, Hunwick (5’11”, 200 lbs., 5/21/1985) recorded 10 points (4+6) and 21 penalty minutes in 42 games last season for Pittsburgh. During the course of his 11-year NHL career, Hunwick has compiled 117 points (25+92) and 203 penalty minutes in 521 games and added seven assists in 26 career playoff contests.

The defenseman was selected by the Boston Bruins in the seventh round (224th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft and has represented the United States in two major international competitions, earning a gold medal at the 2004 IIHF World Junior Championship and a bronze medal at the 2013 IIHF World Championship.
