Rasmus Dahlin will wear No. 26 for the Buffalo Sabres.
The jersey reveal was part of Monday morning's introductory news conference for the No. 1 overall NHL Draft pick.
He wore No. 26 with the Frölunda Indians in the Swedish league. No. 26 was freed up last season when the Sabres assigned Matt Moulson to the Ontario Reign.
"I'll take what I get. I'm pretty excited to see what I get," he said before his new jersey was revealed.
Twenty players have previously worn that number with the Sabres, including Thomas Vanek, Eric Boulton, Derek Plante, Dave Maloney and Steve Patrick.
