After his new players failed to impress, Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill is looking to people he knows.

Buffalo has traded a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft to Detroit in exchange for forward Scott Wilson. Botterill was with Pittsburgh when the Penguins drafted Wilson in the seventh round in 2011.

"We are very happy to add Scott to our roster," Botterill said. "Scott is a hard-working, young player that will be a great fit for our club. As a two-time Stanley Cup champion, his experience will be an asset both on and off the ice."
