‘Timmy, I just wanted you to know that the Sabres just traded for your rights. Mr. (Darcy) Regier and Mr. (Lindy) Ruff will be calling you shortly.’ So then it started to hit me and I thought, “Wow, maybe my friend wasn’t joking around.” About 10 minutes later, I got a call from Mr. Regier and Mr. Ruff just as they were driving home from the draft. That was when the reality had hit me that I had been traded to my hometown team, the team that I grew up watching with my dad and went to all of the games at the old “Aud”. It was the best day of my life.”
