RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Pysyk took advantage of a banged-up Sabres blue line to make his NHL debut last season, suiting up for 19 games and recording five points. The former first-round pick likely has the inside track on breaking camp with the Sabres, but don't get too excited by his draft pedigree; he wasn't drafted for his offensive abilities..

2012-13

Pysyk had a banner season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL, notching 38 points in 57 games while captaining his team to a league championship and earning a trip to the Memorial Cup. He is the Sabres' top prospect on the back end and will begin his first season of professional hockey this coming fall. He's going to need some seasoning at the AHL level, but the Sabres are hoping for big things from the Edmonton native.

2011-12

The highly-regarded Pysyk will will be staying with the Edmonton Oil Kings of thw WHL for one more season despite signing an entry-level deal with the Sabres over the summer. He had a breakout 2010-11 with the Oil Kings, and with a deep defensive corps slated for Rochester, Pysyk will definitely benefit from being the go-to guy for the O-Kings.

2010-11

Buffalo's 2010 first round pick, the 23rd overall, is a two-way defender in a system that is pretty well-stocked on the blue line. He'll work his craft in the WHL in 2010-11, and an impressive season could possibly make him a factor for the 2011-21 Sabres.
