Sabres ink Pu to his first pro contract.

October 23, 2017

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Cliff Pu had a nice Prospect Camp and Training Camp which has earned the 19-year old a three-year entry-level contract.

Pu had a terrific season with the London Knights last year scoring 35 goals and 51 assists for 86 points in 63 games.

This is his fourth season in London and he’s off to a slow start for Dale Hunter. In 11 games Pu has just one goal and five assists and is minus 12.

Last season was the 2016 third round pick’s breakout season as he only had 31 points in 63 games the year before.

Pu is hoping to play for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships in Buffalo, but he’s going to have to pick up his season if he wants to compete for a spot on that team.
