The Buffalo Sabres currently hold the NHL's longest active playoff drought, but with a young group, it appears they're ready to finally take that leap next season.

However, this is a team that has one glaring need, and while Devon Levi is a good option for the future, he may not be the player they need to help them make the jump in 2023-24.


The team have seemingly been linked to every available veteran goaltender, but now, one link has them taking a big swing at one of the Western Conference's top names.

Connor Hellebuyck



According to a recent report, the Sabres are a team to keep an eye on if Hellebuyck becomes available, as they are ready to take a big swing on the goaltender position.


In 2022-23, the 30-year old was 37-25-2 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.49 GAA, and if their young players can take another leap forward, adding such a proven star could make them a genuine playoff threat in the East.
