Sabres Trade Vanek To Islanders

As you've probably already learned, the Sabres have traded Thomas Vanek to the Islanders for Matt Moulson, a 2014 1st-round pick and a 2nd-rounder in 2015.

Both Vanek and Moulson are set to become unrestricted free agents after this season.

Buffalo GM Darcy Regier will be speaking with the media in a few moments.

Keep it tuned here and I'll forward info and comments as they become available.

UPDATE 10:05pm: Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald was at the presser and just posted a piece complete with quotes from Regier.

Or, you can listen directly to audio of the press conference courtesy of WGR-550.

About The Sabres Observer

Dave Davis has covered the Buffalo Sabres for various NHL accredited websites and newspapers since 2003.  He was the senior writer and Sabres correspondent for The Fourth Period, covered hockey for Western New York Sports and Leisure Magazine, and has had articles featured on NHL.com, FOX Sports, Yahoo Sports and in New York Sportscene.  Sabres news and notes can be found on his Twitter page.

Davis originally garnered media attention in 2002 as leader of a lobbying campaign working in unison with potential buyer Mark Hamister attempting to secure state financing to keep the Sabres in Buffalo.  In 2004, Davis was briefly back on the airwaves - this time reaching the finals of the inaugural "WGR Rookie" sports talk competition.  After a few years of "syndicating" his articles on various sites, along with doing some internet radio work, Davis now devotes his new media efforts to bringing quality Sabres related opinions and content to Kukla's Korner.
