The Buffalo Sabres selected defenseman Rasmus Dahlin first overall in the 2018 NHL draft. In his 281 career games in Buffalo the Lidkoping, Sweden native has added 35 goals, 131 assists. That calculates to 0.59 points per game.

Dahlin is off to a torrid start this 2022-23 season. In fact, he has scored a goal in each of the Sabres first first games. That is an NHL record that not even the great Bobby Orr accomplished.

The Sabres may not make the playoffs again, but they have a much better chance this season than in the past. They have had Eric Comrie in net and he has come through in a huge way to help his team.

All in all, the Buffalo Sabres appear to be a club ready to make that next step to become a more competitive NHL team
Dahlin, Power, and Tuch can be the catalyst for this team to gain some respectability. They will certainly be in the playoff picture next season if they fail to get there this season.
Will Dahlin score 20 goals this season from the blueline? Could be...
