The number 13 has not always been unlucky for the Buffalo Sabres. Three times in team history Buffalo has held the 13th overall selection in the NHL Entry Draft. The Sabres most notable pick at the 13th overall spot was their first-round selection in the 1978 Draft. That year, Buffalo chose a hard-nosed defenseman by the name of Larry Playfair.
