SUNRISE, Fla. (WIVB) – With all of the headline-grabbing moves done on Friday, the Buffalo Sabres used most of their remaining draft picks to beef up the blue-line depth in the organization.

The Sabres selected high school defenseman Brendan Guhle in the second round, then followed it up with William Borgen in the fourth, Devante Stephens in the fifth, and Ivan Chukarov in the seventh.

The only non-defenseman the team drafted on Saturday was forward Giogrio Estephan in the sixth round. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
