Sabres owner Terry Pegula, a Penn State alum, knows all about the Nittany Lions hockey program. One of their future players is now a member of Buffalo's organization, too.
The Sabres used their fourth-round pick on Brett Murray, a 6-foot-4, 216-pound winger who has committed to Penn State. Murray was the Central Canada Hockey League's top prospect this season after recording 14 goals and 46 assists in 48 games with Carleton Place.
"Known as a big two-way forward who shows awareness with and without the puck," the CCHL wrote while announcing Murray's award. "He offers strong playmaking ability to go along with a good release. He sees the ice well and will battle for position whether it’s in the open ice or in the corners. Not afraid to go to the net."
