Jacob Bryson of the Sabres
Taken in Round 4 in 2016
Other pick in that round: Drake Batherson of Ottawa went at No. 121; he’s in his first full season with the Senators.
The details: Bryson is the easy pick here because he’s the only one who ever suited up for a Buffalo team. Jacob played his first game in the NHL on February 23, 2021 against the Devils. The Sabres won that game, but then went on a record losing streak from there. We’ll see how the defenseman turns out in the years to come.
Other 99s: Ron Gassert was picked by the Bills in 1962, but he signed with Green Bay instead and played 10 games for the Packers that year. Cam MacGregor was a sixth-round choice of the Sabres in 1978. The left winger bounced around the minor leagues until 1983.
