Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray, who had been trying to trade Chris Stewart all year long for a huge return, may have overreached at the end. The Wild was able to snag the power forward for a 2017 second-round pick. The Sabres are also picking up half the $465,000 still owed to the free-agent-to-be.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (March 2, 2015) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced that the team has acquired forward Jack Nevins and a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Torrey Mitchell.
