Sabres follow last place-finish by landing No. 1 draft pick

The Buffalo Sabres followed a season filled with losses by finally winning something - the NHL draft lottery - and landing the No. 1 pick for just third time in franchise history.

The Sabres became the first team to finish 31st in the standings following the addition of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. And they entered the draft lottery in Toronto on Saturday night with the best odds - 18.5 percent- to win the first pick.

The Sabres overcame their past disappointments the last two times they finished last and settled for the No. 2 pick in both 2014 and 2015.
