The Sabres have acquired Anaheim Ducks defenseman Brandon Montour in exchange for defenseman Brendan Guhle, and a first round pick. 

According to a press release from the Sabres, “Brandon is a young, offensive-minded defenseman who can play the up-tempo style we are looking to play,” said General Manager Jason Botterill. “He’s a right-shot defenseman that brings additional playoff experience to our club.”

The trade was initially reported by TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun.   

LeBrun and TSN’s Frank Seravalli also reported the conditions of the first round pick the Sabres are trading to Anaheim. 

Montour has five goals and 25 points with the Ducks this season.
