The pick going to the Ducks will not be the Buffalo Sabres first round pick though, it will be either St. Louis’ or San Jose’s first rounder.

Brendan Guhle, on the other hand, was a second round pick, 51st overall in the 2015 entry draft. He is in his second full season with the Rochester Americans of the AHL and has a combined 59 points in 112 AHL games, while adding five helpers in 23 NHL games for the Sabres.
