Marcus Foligno, that is. Combine Foligno with Kassian and an increased role from Weber (and a few others on the roster now), and this is a Sabres team that is getting tough in the next few years.
Foligno posted career highs in goals (23), assists (36) and points (59) for Sudbury of the Ontario Hockey League. The league’s coaches also named him the best body checker in the Eastern Conference.
Best body checker? I’ll take that. Buffalo has some strong, talented players in the pipeline, and think I might love how this team looks and plays in a couple of years. This year too, maybe, depending on how the offseason goes. Let’s make some moves!
