With their final pick in this year’s draft at 181st overall, the Sabres selected 19-year-old right winger Victor Olofsson from MODO in Sweden. The 5-foot-11 and 175-pound Olofsson has speed to burn, and scored 32 goals and 53 points at the J20 level last season.
Buffalo went back into the high school ranks for their 151st selection with Christopher Brown, the son of former NHLer Doug Brown. A center from Cranbrook Kingswood in Michigan, Brown accumulated a ridiculous 84 points (26+58) in 28 games this season. Brown has committed to Boston College, and is expected to play with the USHL’s Green Bay Gamblers in 2014-15. His uncle, Greg, is a coach at BC and was drafted by the Sabres in 1986.
