Brayden McNabb departed Buffalo at the end of last season feeling great about his game. The first-year pro played 25 games with the Sabres during several call-ups, and he was a regular on the blue line when the team finished the year.

Defenseman Brayden McNabb is player that Sabres fans became familiar with quite fast last season.
After a strong start in AHL Rochester, McNabb earned himself a call-up in December when the injury bug began to hit the team.
His 25 game stretch in the NHL earned him the respect and admiration of the Sabres faithful for his big hitting and...
Now that Tyler Myers has served his time, Reggie Sekera is back to 100% good health, and Alexander Sulzer is the surprise of the season, Brayden McNabb becomes the odd D man out.

The Buffalo Sabres have demoted defenseman Brayden McNabb to AHL Rochester, where the rookie will have the benefit of getting more playing time after missing eight games with a concussion.
Coach Lindy Ruff announced the move Thursday, saying McNabb has been cleared to play.

If Buffalo, NY had its own official paper currency, its a lead pipe cinch that the faces of Brayden McNabb and Zack Kassian would appear on it. McNabb has become a true blue and gold folk hero in Buffalo this season. Ditto Kassian. Two young bucks, with blue collar DNA coarsing through their veins, busting their asses, imposing their iron wills to make the Sabres a winning team. More on Kassian...

I'm sitting in the Buffalo Sabres press box right now, watching the workers put boards over the ice down below and reflecting about tonight's game. Pretty surreal for a guy who's been a Sabres fan since he was 13 and also writer who lost his blogging mojo about a year ago before joining this site. But this isn't about me. It's about the Sabres vs Leaf game and...
All seven healthy Sabres D skated this morning. They all left the ice together.
Mike Weber will play. Brayden McNabb will play.
Marc Andre Gragnani appears to be the odd man out.
Lindy Ruff told Howard Simon this morning that it matters not the age of a player. He's handed out playing time based on one criteria:

“I really think he’s getting better every game,” head coach Lindy Ruff said after Friday’s 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers.
