2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Ruhwedel signed as a free agent in April after finishing a collegiate career with UMass-Lowell. He immediately joined the Sabres and suited up for the seasonís final seven games, failing to reach the score sheet. He is among a large group of blue liners vying for a depth role on the Sabres, and will need to show well at training camp to avoid starting the season with the Sabresí AHL affiliate in Rochester. There is a bit of offensive upside (23 points in 41 games in his final year of college), but he is a long way from hitting the fantasy radar at the onset of his first full season as a pro.
