About Dave Andreychuk:
The most prolific power play sniper in NHL history, Andreychuk was selected 16th overall by the Sabres in the 1982 Entry Draft. He would go on to spend 12 of his 23 NHL seasons in Buffalo (1982-93; 2000-01), scoring 804 points (368+436) in 837 games. Andreychuk is second on the all-time Sabres lists in points and assists, and is third in goals. He holds the NHL career record for most power play goals with 274, including a Sabres-record 28 in 1991-92. As a Sabre, he scored 161 power play goals and still holds the team record by scoring four power play goals in one game (March 19, 1992 at Los Angeles).

The Hamilton, Ont. native won a Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay in 2003-04, and finished his career with 1,338 points (640+698) in 1,639 games with Buffalo, Toronto, New Jersey, Boston, Colorado and Tampa Bay. He is ranked fourth all-time in games played; 13th all-time in goals, and 25th all-time in points.
