SABRES ACQUIRE SCANDELLA, POMINVILLE FROM WILD

BUFFALO, N.Y. (June 30, 2017) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired defenseman Marco Scandella, forward Jason Pominville and a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for forwards Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno, and a third-round pick in 2018.

Selected by Minnesota in the second round (55th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Scandella (6’3”, 208 lbs., 2/23/1990) recently completed his seventh NHL season with the Wild. A native of Montreal, Quebec, Scandella has recorded 89 points (27+62) in 373 career regular-season games with the Wild, with nine points (6+3) in 39 career playoff games.
