Sabres complete 2017 draft with five selections on day two

Sabres fall to Boston 2-1

The Sabres didn't help their prospects much for the 2017-18 season in this year's NHL draft, but they weren't expected to.

But if you trust expert opinions, Buffalo is setting itself up very nicely for the future.

The Sabres are drawing largely positive reviews regarding their 2017 draft class, which began Friday with the selection of high school center Casey Mittlestadt, and concluded with the selection of five more players on day two.

Marcus Davidsson - Center - Djurgardens/SHL (Round 2, 37th overall)

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen - Goaltender - HPK Jr./Finland-Jr. (Round 2, 54th overall - From Minnesota)

Oskari Laaksonen - Defenseman - Ilves Jr./Finland-Jr. (Round 3, 89th overall - From Washington)

Jacob Bryson - Defenseman - Providence/Hockey East - (Round 4, 99th overall)

Linus Weissbach - Left Wing - Tri-City/USHL (7th Round, 192nd Overall)

The Sabres prospects will gather next month from July 8-11 for the team's annual development camp.
