With their sixth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, the Buffalo Sabres selected center Christopher Brown out of Cranbrook Kingswood High School (Michigan).
Brown, 18, is a right-shooting forward from Pontiac, Michigan. He finished with a ranking of #138 by NHL Central Scouting, up from #175 in midterm rankings. Brown had 84 points (26-58) in 28 games with his high school team, according to his prospect profile on NHL.com.
He also appeared in two games with the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL this season. It’s expected that he’ll play in the USHL next season before heading to Boston College.
The Sabres presumably have just one pick remaining in this year’s NHL Draft, pick #181, the first of the seventh round. Barring a trade, that’s it for Buffalo until the 2015 NHL Draft next year, which will be hosted by the Florida Panthers.
