Round 2 drama: Sekera dealt for McBain; Compher and Hurley taken

By Mike Harrington

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Sabres have traded defenseman Andrej Sekera to Carolina for defenseman Jamie McBain and the Canes' No. 35 pick. The Sabres then drafted winger J.T. Compher of the US Development Program with the pick.

With the No. 38 pick, the Sabres have taken Connor Hurley, a Minnesota high school center who finished his season with Muskegon of the USHL and is committed to go to Notre Dame in 2014-15. He will be a high school center this fall.

We're approaching the Sabres' pick at No. 52 and waiting on Justin Bailey's selection as well.

More to come.
