As Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill continues to work the phones for trades, first-round picks are moving around the NHL.
Pittsburgh sent its first-round pick to Ottawa last week in a three-way trade that also included Vegas. Boston sent its first-round pick to the New York Rangers on Sunday as part of the deal for right wing Rick Nash. Nashville and Winnipeg followed suit Monday.
The Jets have made the biggest move so far, acquiring center Paul Stastny from St. Louis for a conditional first-round pick this year, a conditional fourth-round pick in 2020 and prospect Erik Foley.
Nashville traded its first- and fourth-round picks in this year's draft and forward Victor Ejdsell to Chicago for forward Ryan Hartman and a fifth-round pick.
The Sabres have reportedly been seeking a first-round pick in any deal for left winger Evander Kane.
