BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Sam Reinhart’s tenure with the Buffalo Sabres has come to an end.

Reinhart, the second overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, has spent his entire career with the Sabres. In 454 career games, Reinhart has scored 134 goals and tallied 161 assists for 295 points.

In 2021, Reinhart led the Sabres with 25 goals and 40 points in 54 games. During his time with the Sabres, Reinhart has had five seasons with more than 20 goals.
