Buffalo Sabres Make a Trade For a Big Forward
The NHL Trading Deadline is at 3 pm EST today and so far, the Buffalo Sabres have been very quiet. The team did trade for Vancouver Canucks defenseman Riley Stillman earlier this week, along with trading away the rights to goaltender Erik Portillo to the Los Angeles Kings for a third round pick.
General manager Kevyn Adams did make a move today, as news broke just after 2 pm.
Both Kevin Weekes and Elliott Friedman have announced the Minnesota Wild have traded forward Jordan Greenway to the Buffalo Sabres for a draft pick.
Michael Russo reports Buffalo gave up a 2023 second and a 2024 fifth round pick. Wild do not retain salary.
Greenway is a 26-year-old forward who is 6'6''. He has spent his entire career with Minnesota.
If you're looking for the Buffalo connection, Greenway's coach for his under-18 team was current Sabres head coach, Don Granato.
Greenway is a physical forward but not the kind of forward who will score you goals. He will likely fill a role player roll on the third or fourth line for Buffalo. He is signed through the 2024-2025 season at an average of $3 million per season.
We will see if the Sabres make any more moves to improve the roster for a playoff push.
