An up and coming young defenseman could be on his way out of the Buffalo Sabres organization.
This past season, Pilut played 37 games in the AHL and just 13 games in the NHL. He has shown a lot of promise as a passer on the back end, and has become a darling in the analytics community.
While some reports in the past have suggested a player is leaving the organiztion, it does not mean that those stories are true. Last year, it was reported in Sweden that Johan Larsson was signing in the Swedish Hockey League, which ultimately did not happen.
Given his play in the AHL and NHL, and the Sabres being thin on left-shot defensemen, it's not hard to see why they would want Pilut to stick around on their second pair.
