Compher picked #35

Sabres Select J.T. Compher With 35th Overall Pick

With the 35th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, the Sabres have selected center JT Compher out of the US National Development Program. 

The Sabres received the 35th pick in a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Compher was rated 35th in TSN's Prospect Rankings.  Here's TSN's Craig Button on Compher:

"J.T. combines the attributes of skill and will in his game. Has a strong competitive fire and is not easily denied. Very good quickness and he is capable of making plays at high speed and can beat defenders one-on-one. Has good hands with a good shot and is able to play in tight areas. Very good awareness and makes good plays with and without puck in all areas."

Compher had 15 goals and 42 points in 47 games for the USNDP last season.  He'll be attending Michigan in the fall.
