The Buffalo Sabres have announced that they have signed first overall pick Rasmus Dahlin to a three-year entry-level contract. 

Dahlin became the third player in Sabres history to be taken first overall last month in Dallas, Texas. 

The defenseman played for two seasons in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Dahlin won a silver medal in Buffalo with Sweden at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The most sought out prospect in the 2018 NHL Draft also won Best Defenseman honors and a spot on the tournament All-Star Team.
