The Buffalo Sabres have returned defenseman Brendan Guhle to junior, where he’ll play for the WHL’s Prince Albert Raiders.

Guhle was the 51st overall pick in the 2015 draft. The 18-year-old had two assists in four preseason games before suffering an injury on a big hit by Toronto’s Dion Phaneuf.

Guhle said Sunday that he was fully recovered from the injury. Hence, the return to Prince Albert.

There are now just five 2015 draft picks left on NHL rosters: Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Noah HanifinMikko Rantanen, and Daniel Sprong.
