Shortly after the Buffalo Sabres selected top defensive prospect Owen Power as the No. 1 pick at the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, general manager Kevyn Adams made an introductory FaceTime call to the Mississauga, Ontario native. “Who do you have behind you there?” Adams asked. A quick pan showed not one or two, but an entire crowd of family members who roared their support through the iPhone speaker.
“Mississauga is not that far away from Buffalo,” Adams said. “We expect to see a lot of Power jersey’s in the stands.” You can watch the interaction below as it makes up a part of the trailer for “Sabres: Embedded,” a new series debuting Thursday on the team’s YouTube channel.
