With the NHL Draft finished and Sabres development camp taking place this week, Rasmus Dahlin has been making the rounds with the Buffalo media today. 

Dahlin on what it meant to be able to finally put on the Sabres jersey after being drafted first overall:

"It's amazing to put on the Sabres jersey, I've been waiting for that for so long. To be a part of that organization means a lot, I know the city's great, the fans are great and I've heard so many great things about the city."

Dahlin on if he did any research on the team:

"I've been there twice, so I knew a little bit. But I didn't look up anything, I waited until the draft."

Dahlin on handling the pressures of being the first overall pick:

"It's gone pretty good, actually. I'm kind of used to it so I've learned how to handle it, so yea, I can handle it."

Dahlin on transitioning from the larger European ice to NHL sized ice:

"It's easier in the D-zone, you're so much closer to the guy in the zone and it's going much faster. I think it's more fun to play on the smaller ice."
