SABRES SIGN 2012 DRAFT PICK JAKE McCABE

The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has signed defenseman Jake McCabe to a three-year, entry-level contract.

McCabe (6'0", 195 lbs., 10/12/93) recently completed his junior season with the University of Wisconsin (Big Ten), earning first-team All-Big Ten honors by registering a career-high 25 points (8+17) through 33 games and serving as the team’s assistant captain in 2013-14. His point total was fifth-best for the Badgers, who captured the Big Ten conference tournament championship, and fourth-best among defensemen in the Big Ten. In 2013, he served as captain of Team USA at the IIHF World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, where the United States took home the gold medal.

The Eau Claire, Wis. native was selected by the Sabres in the second round (44th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to his collegiate career, McCabe played two seasons with the U17 and U18 U.S. National Development Teams (USHL), appearing in 54 games and collecting 11 points (2+9).
