Jordan Samuels-Thomas traded to Buffalo Sabres

Jordan Samuels-Thomas, Quinnipiac's rugged senior forward, was looking at NHL free agency, so the Winnipeg Jets dealt him to Buffalo. A pre relocation draft-pick of the Atlanta Thrashers in 2009, Winnipeg had until August 15 to sign him or lose his rights to free agency. Samuels-Thomas didn't attend the Jets prospect camp this week, and was unlikely to sign with the team. Rather than walk away with nothing, Winnipeg will get a 7th-round draft pick in 2015.

Samuels-Thomas is big, strong and tough to move off the puck. He scored 30 goals in two seasons at Quinnipiac after transferring from Bowling Green, including 17 during the Bobcats run to the NCAA championship game in 2013, three during the NCAA tournament.
