McNabb was a defensive force in the Golden Knights' inaugural season, dishing out 225 hits and blocking 176 shots in 76 games. He was left exposed by the Kings at the expansion draft and signed a four-year, $10 million contract extension with the Golden Knights during the season. The 27-year-old isn't known for his offense, but McNabb is a reliable top-pairing blueliner who supplies a steady source of PIM and excels in all defensive categories. Look for the punishing defenseman to play an integral role once again on the Vegas blue line in 2018-19.

  2. Brayden McNabb 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    The Golden Knights added a potential shut-down defenseman when they plucked McNabb from the Kings in the expansion draft. The 26-year-old blueliner posted spectacular possession numbers with Los Angeles over the past three years (58.1 Corsi For percentage) and also owns the coveted size (6-foot-4, 212 pounds) to limited opponents. McNabb is unlikely to become a regular offensive contributor in Vegas, so his fantasy value will be tied to his willingness to block shots, throw hits and visit the penalty box. He definitely offers upside in those peripheral categories.
  3. Brayden McNabb 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Two years ago, it appeared McNabb – an accomplished AHL producer in the Sabres’ organization – was poised for a full-bore breakout on the left coast, having come to Los Angeles with a 71-game season that saw him post 24 points and a plus-11 rating despite averaging less than 16 minutes on the blue line. But that didn’t come to fruition last year – despite playing 10 more games and averaging nearly three additional minutes of ice time, McNabb managed only 14 points. He did complement that with generous helpings of hits (206) and PIM (92), giving him value in specialty formats, and there’s still hope that at just 25 years of age, McNabb can harness the playmaking skills that helped him garner 102 points in 159 AHL games.
  4. Brayden McNabb 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    McNabb joins the Kings' organization following a midseason trade from Buffalo. He would need to exposed to waivers if he doesn't make the roster, but will have a hard time finding a spot on the Kings. He's shown some skill on the power play in the WHL, but he's AHL bound if he sticks with the Kings. He could get snagged on waivers and that might move him closer to the NHL. Keep him in your sights.
  5. Brayden McNabb 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    McNabb spent the entire season in the AHL last year, recording 36 points in 62 games and anchoring the blue line for the Sabres’ farm team in Rochester. When injuries to the blue line hit, the Sabres elected to recall Mark Pysyk instead of McNabb, perhaps an indication of the pecking order in the system. The talented defenseman will find himself in a log jam at training camp as he fights for a spot with the big club. The offensive potential is there, but the fantasy relevance won’t come until he proves himself as an NHL mainstay.
  6. Brayden McNabb 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    McNabb got a taste of NHL action in his first professional season, recording eight points in 25 games for a Sabres team that was decimated by injuries on the blue line. GM Darcy Regier has already indicated that McNabb will spend the upcoming season with the club's AHL affiliate in Rochester, where he posted 25 points in 45 games last year. The Sabres have high hopes for this offensive defenseman and clearly would like to develop him carefully. McNabb has much offensive potential, so keep an eye on him in keeper leagues.
  7. Brayden McNabb 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    McNabb took a giant step forward last season with Kootenay of the WHL. Buffalo's third round pick in 2009 broke out with 72 points (22 G, 50 A) in only 59 games while managing a plus-25 for the Ice in 2010-11. His days of junir hockey are over after signing an entry-level deal with the Sabres in May. McNabb's progress in his first year of professional hockey will be fun to watch as he spends 2011-12 with AHL Rochester.
  8. Brayden McNabb 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    McNabb should once again be with Kootenay Ice of the WHL in 2010-11. He is a defensive-minded blueliner who has grown offensively in juniors. McNabb is a name to track for the future, but won't have any impact on the Sabres this year.
