Buffalo Sabres – Devon Levi
Devon Levi is sure to have an amazing season for the Buffalo Sabres this year.
Highly-touted Buffalo Sabres goaltending prospect Devon Levi is an NHL starting goaltender in the near future.
The 6-foot-0 and 184-pound Levi was drafted in the seventh round (212th overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft but has been creating a special path to the NHL on his own.
Last season, Levi made his NHL debut playing seven games for the Sabres, posting a record of 5-2 with a 2.94 GAA and a save percentage of .905. He looked sharp and not out of place.
Levi has risen to the top of the Sabres goaltending chart and promises to take huge leaps this season to be Buffalo’s starting goaltender.
The only player in his way is goaltender Craig Anderson who is 41 years old. The Sabres are filled with young talent and are one of the teams in the NHL on the fast track to success.
Placing Levi between the pipes full-time would not be the worst thing as the Sabres are a team built on offense and defense.
Levi and Buffalo both have bright futures so why not put the future of their goaltending in the net every night?
He played well in a small sample so he is capable of handling NHL competition. Levi could be in the running for the Calder Trophy by the end of the season.
