    BUFFALO, N.Y. (October 1, 2018) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired defenseman Jack Dougherty from the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Nicholas Baptiste.
    Dougherty (6’1”, 186 lbs., 5/25/1996) has spent each of the last two seasons playing for the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL), where he appeared in 141 career AHL contests. Nashville’s second-round pick (51st overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft, Dougherty also appeared in three playoff games for the Admirals.

    Before turning pro, Dougherty played one season for the Portland Winterhawks (WHL). In 68 games for Portland, the St. Paul, Minnesota native ranked second among team defensemen with 52 points (11+41). He also spent the 2014-15 season with the Wisconsin Badgers (NCAA), where he finished with nine points (2+7) in 33 games as a freshman. Dougherty recorded four points (2+2) in seven games as a member of the United States team that won the gold medal at the 2014 IIHF World U18 Championship.

    Best of luck Nic. Two-thirds of Cerberus have departed in similar fashion.

    Yeah, Baptiste's time was up, no doubt.

    Still like the player. Best of luck.

    I remember Jack Dougherty being a Dman I really wanted in 2014. No idea how he turned out.

    Not surprised to see Baptiste out, this training camp was basically his last opportunity to make something happen. I like the swap of positions, don't really know anything about Dougherty, though.

    weird, I'm a Preds fan who used to work in the Sabres org tree. Dougherty hit the wall of defensemen that is the top 6 of Nashville. I would have bet $ that he would make the bottom 6 of Nashville but nope. Baptiste will be interesting with him playing a block from the National Baptiste Convention. Very gritty guy, I would not be shocked to see him in Nashville bottom 6 some day.

    Dougherty is a kid from Minnesota playing in the Preds organization. I wonder who vouched for him. :laugh:

    In all seriousness, and echoing others, it was time to move on from Baptiste. Given the trades of Baptiste and Fasching, I'm not sure that Justin Bailey should be purchasing real estate in WNY.

    Same I remember liking him. I wanted him or Mckeown over Karabacek. That whole draft was rough. Leaving Dvorak and Point on the board

    I get the feeling Baptiste is going to have success elsewhere in the league. Definitely had him over Bailey...

    Always liked Baptiste more than Bailey but it’s over for both of them so whatever.

    Dougherty's stat line certainly looks like a middle/bottom pair AHL dman. I'll wait for a credible report to confirm though.

    Wish him the best of luck! He may simply need a change of scenery. I also know nothing about Jack Doughtery but getting a playerback is a good thing.

    He has absolutely no NHL time and is only 22, what is his knock? Is Nashville loaded on RD?

    I really liked Dougherty in his draft year. Maybe there's still something there.

    Good luck to Nik. Hopefully he gets on track with the Preds.

    Dougherty was on a lot of our lists at the draft. I don't know how his progression has gone the past couple seasons but Baptiste could've been claimed off waivers and few here would have cared. So, I like the trade as a shake-up alone.

    The Amerks have a ridiculous amount of defensemen. Not exactly a fan of this.

    Looks like he’s between Nelson and Borgen on the depth chart? Given the oft injured status of Bogosian probably a pretty good pickup. Both look like tweener nhlers. Moving area of depth to address org weakness (rhd)

    Not earth shattering but a solid deal

    Can go from a 3rd line NHL D man to very good career AHLer.
    Not a bad move JB. :clap:
