Alexander Nylander

On this week's edition WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's poor showing against the Toronto Maple Leafs and how far ahead the cross-border rivals are after both teams underwent rebuilds in recent years. Also, with former Sabre Ryan O'Reilly returning to Buffalo last weekend, how does the trade that shipped him to St. Louis look now? And Sabres prospect Alexander Nylander is showing signs why he was a first-round pick in 2016.


On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's continued collapse, now having lost 11 of their last 13 games, as well as Jeff Skinner's goal-scoring drought, the illegal hit that led to Jack Eichel's two-game suspension, and the prospects for 2016 first-round draft pick Alexander Nylander, who is back up with the big club.


On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the (merciful) end of the team's home schedule for the 2017-18 season, a campaign that saw the team win a paltry 11 home games. Also, two of the team's top prospects are with the team for a late-season cup of coffee. Bill shares some thoughts on Casey Mittlestadt and Alexander Nylander on the penultimate episode of Behind The Bench.


On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about concerns over forward Kyle Okposo's seemingly serious illness, reaction to the NHL's decision to not participate in the 2018 Olympics, a couple of players who made their Sabre debuts, and this week's games, which included an embarrassing loss to the rival Toronto Maple Leafs.
