Sabres prospect Connor Hurley transfers from Notre Dame to Minnesota

As the Sabres gear up for their Prospects Challenge this weekend, one of their young players has made a big change.

Connor Hurley, a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, has left Notre Dame for the University of Minnesota. The Gophers announced Tuesday that Hurley will sit out the 2017-18 season because of NCAA transfer rules and join the team for 2018-19.

Hurley played three seasons at Notre Dame but missed the second half of last season for undisclosed personal reasons. The 21-year-old forward had 14 goals and 48 points in 98 career games with the Fighting Irish. Hurley had four goals and 16 points in 21 games as a junior.

The Sabres will welcome Boston, Pittsburgh and New Jersey to town this weekend for their annual Prospects Challenge. The round-robin tournament will be played Friday, Saturday and Monday. Buffalo is expected to announce its roster Tuesday.
