Ken Sutton of the Sabres
Taken in Round 5 in 1989
Other pick in that round: Western New Yorker Aaron Miller went 88th overall to the Rangers that draft year. The defenseman played 677 games in the NHL.
The details: Sutton arrived in Buffalo in 1991 after almost two full years with Rochester. He was a regular defenseman for the Sabres for three years before he was traded to Edmonton. Ken didn’t stop playing until 2006, after playing three seasons in Germany.
Other 98s: Ken Priestlay played 117 games with the Sabres, but mostly bounced between Buffalo and Rochester. After playing for other organizations, he turned up in England to put in five productive seasons with Sheffield in England. Corey Louchiey spent three years as a reserve tackle with the Bills.
