Top Notes

  • With tonight’s win, the Sabres improved to 9-2-1 against the Pacific Division this season, including a 6-0-1 record at home, and earned their first season sweep of the Ducks since the 2011-12 season.
  • 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.
  • With his assist on Dahlin’s goal, Rasmus Ristolainen now has points in three straight games (1+2) and 12 points (2+10) in his last 12 home games.

SABRES SIGN DAHLIN TO ENTRY-LEVEL CONTRACT

BUFFALO, N.Y. (July 9, 2018) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has signed defenseman Rasmus Dahlin to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Dahlin (6’3”, 185 lbs., 4/13/2000) was taken by Buffalo with the first overall selection in the 2018 NHL Draft last month in Dallas. He became just the third player to be taken No. 1 overall by the Sabres, joining Gilbert Perreault (1970) and Pierre Turgeon (1987).

The defenseman appeared in his second professional season in 2017-18, posting 20 points (7+13) and tying for fourth among all SHL defensemen with seven goals in 41 games. Through two SHL seasons, he has totaled 23 points (8+15) in 67 regular-season games, adding eight points (4+4) in 20 postseason contests.

A native of Lidköping, Sweden, Dahlin won a silver medal at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship in Buffalo. His six points (0+6), plus-7 rating and 23:08 average ice time at the tournament all led or tied to lead his team, helping him earn Best Defenseman honors and a spot on the tournament All-Star Team.

Dahlin also represented Sweden at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship as a 16-year-old and, at 17, was the youngest player at the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
