DALLAS — The Buffalo Sabres have selected Malmo Redhawks defenseman Linus Lindstrand Cronholm with their second pick in Round 4, making the choice at No. 117 overall.
The 6-foot-1 Cronholm, from Sweden, is considered a strong, unflashy defenseman.
He's young, too — Cronholm doesn't turn 18 until July 3.
He was the third defensemen that the Sabres have selected in their first four picks in the draft.
