RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jake McCabe.
McCabe had an outstanding sophomore season at the University of Wisconsin, playing a shut-down role and grabbing 21 points in 38 games. He also captained the United States to a gold medal at the World Junior Championships, solidifying his status as a top prospect. Much of the Sabres’ prospect depth lies on the blue line, so there’s no need to rush McCabe, who will head back to Wisconsin for at least another season.
McCabe will return to the University of Wisconsin for his sophomore season after being drafted by the Sabres in the third-round of June's NHL Entry Draft. He'll see an increased role this season, but is likely several years away from contributing at the NHL level.
