Matt Moulson will return to Buffalo after brief stops in Long Island and Minnesota last season, but he'll likely once again find himself as the top winger on one of the league's worst teams.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Armia was one of the top prospects outside North America last season, and is set to begin an NHL career following another impressive campaign in his native Finland. He posted 33 points in 47 games for Assat Pori of the SM-Liiga and also impressed with Team Finland at the World Junior Championships. Those in keeper leagues should be watching Armia very closely as he arrives in North America to begin his entry-level contract. With the Sabres in need of some offensive punch, Armia will have a strong chance at starting the season in Buffalo, and could contribute early on.

2012-13

Armia, the 16th overall selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, will remain in his native Finland this season to continue his development. The Sabres have high hopes for the offensively gifted winger, who signed his entry-level contract in June. Keep a close eye on him in keeper leagues, as he may be ready to cross the pond next season. Armia grabbed 38 points in 54 games for Assat Pori of the SM-Liiga.

2011-12

The Sabres grabbed Armia with the 16th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, adding size to a relatively small crop of forwards that they have in the organization. Armia will stay in Finland as he is committed to play at least one more year with Assat of SM-Liga.
