Tim Regan of the Sabres
Taken in Round 7 in 1970
Other pick in the round: Terry Murray was taken by California at No. 88. He was much more famous as a coach than as a player, but he did play defense in 303 NHL games.
The details: Tim Regan played three years at Boston University and also toured with the U.S. Olympic team in 1972. Then it was on to the Sabres’ organization, as he played with Charlotte, Cincinnati and Hershey. Tim never played a game in the NHL.
Other 84s: It’s not a noteworthy group from our perspective. The Sabres took goalie John Bradley in the fourth round in 1987. After finishing college, Bradley played six games in Rochester and then bounced around the ECHL for four years. : Roy “Milam” Wall was a halfback from the University of North Carolina, where he was a reserve on the 1959 and 1960 teams. Roy was listed on the 1958 roster but didn’t seem to have any carries. Wall never did suit up for the Bills.
