The Buffalo Sabres kicked things off at the NHL Draft on Friday and with the No. 1 selection in the 2021 NHL Draft, the Sabres selected right-shot defenceman Owen Power. 

"If you had to go out and acquire a player like this on the market, it would cost you a fortune," Sam Cosentino says as Power put up the Sabres' jersey surrounded by his family. 

This is just the beginning of a big night for the University of Michigan, especially when the Seattle Kraken's selection came next. With the second overall pick, general manager Ron Francis selected Power's teammate, center Matthew Beniers. A great pick for the Seattle who went thin on centres in the expansion draft. 

To wrap up the 2021 NHL Top 3 podium of picks, the Anaheim selected forward Mason McTavish third overall.
