SJB over at Puck Junk has an awesome post about the Sabres 11th round Draft Pick in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. I won't spoil the story for you if you're unfamiliar with it but it's pretty awesome. So is the card above.

I'm really happy that Grigorenko one of the best prospects at center and perhaps the best "playmaker" in the draft fell to the Sabres last night and trading the pick that we got last year from Calgary to move up from Pick 21 to 14 was also awesome. I've heard people compare Girgensons to Lucic and that type of grit is exactly what the Sabres need. Even if only one of the two pan out it will be a success.
