The Buffalo Sabres stocked up on another Boston University product by acquiring defenseman Brandon Hickey in a trade that sent forward Hudson Fasching to the Arizona Coyotes.

Buffalo also acquired minor-league forward Mike Sislo in the deal Thursday.

Hickey joins three former Boston University teammates on Buffalo’s roster Authentic John Franklin-Myers Jersey , including star center Jack Eichel. Hickey was the Terriers’ captain in completing his senior season, and finished his career with 21 goals and 54 points in 147 games.

Hickey also played in college with Buffalo forwards Evan Rodrigues and Danny O’Regan.

Fasching spent a majority of his two-plus seasons with Buffalo in Rochester, the Sabres’ American Hockey League affiliate. The 22-year-old had a goal and two assists in 22 career NHL games.

Arizona later acquired forward Adam Helewka from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for defenseman Kyle Wood.

The 22-year-old Helewka had nine goals and 29 assists in 63 games last season for the San Jose Barracuda in the AHL. Wood, also 22, had three goals and 16 assists in 49 games last season for the Tucson Roadrunnersin the AHL.

The Sabres also signed prospect goalie Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen to a three-year, entry level contract.

Luukkonen is from Finland and was Buffalo’s second-round pick in last year’s draft. Luukkonen entered the draft listed first among European goaltenders in the NHL Central Scouting rankings after leading HPK to win Finland’s Junior Hockey League championship.

This past season, the 19-year-old had an 11-11-2 record and 0.909 save percentage playing professionally with Finland’s second-division LeKi Lempaala.

The Sabres have organizational depth needs at goaltending with Linus Ullmark projected to make the jump to the NHL after spending the past three seasons developing in the minors.



Pedro Alvarez has been designated for assignment by the Baltimore Orioles, who made several moves Tuesday in an attempt to improve a team with the worst record in the big leagues.

The 31-year-old Alvarez had a .181 batting average with eight home runs and 18 RBIs in 45 games. Used mostly as a designated hitter, he was in a 1-for-18 skid since his last multihit game, on May 24.

”Pete’s a good man. He’s a good teammate Brady Skjei Jersey ,” manager Buck Showalter said. ”With the potential of some other people returning (from the disabled list), there just weren’t going to be any at-bats for him.”

It was not a surprising move, given the Orioles entered play Tuesday with a 20-50 record.

”It’s unfortunate for Pedro,” closer Zach Britton said. ”With where we are in the standings, the organization needs to see what we’ve got with some of the young guys.”

As a corresponding move, the Orioles selected the contract of infielder Steve Wilkerson from Triple-A Norfolk, whose first appearance will be his major league debut.

”This is a very special moment,” Wilkerson said. ”Regardless of how my season started, I’m very happy and very fortunate to be here right now.”

In December, Wilkerson received a 50-game suspension for a violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Plan.

”It was a very difficult time Authentic Martin Fehervary Jersey ,” he acknowledged. ”I made the decision at that time to try to put my best foot forward.”

In addition, Baltimore recalled catcher Caleb Joseph from Norfolk. Joseph began the season as the Orioles’ starting catcher but was optioned to the minors on May 17 after batting .182 in 24 games.

Joseph joins his brother, Corban Joseph, on the Baltimore roster. Corban Joseph was summoned from Norfolk last week and played in his first big league game since a two-game stint with the Yankees in 2013.

Standing side by side outside the Orioles clubhouse, the brothers relished the notion of being major league teammates.

”The first goal was to get to the big leagues at the same time, and then to be on the same team, this is a storybook (tale) for our family,” Caleb said. ”It’s pretty incredible.”

Corban added: ”It’s like a dream that you never thought would actually come true actually panning out.”
