Sabres trade Reinhart to Panthers for Levi, 1st-round pick
The first-rounder is lottery-protected, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun. If it's in the top 10, the pick will be moved to 2023.
Reinhart, 25, is a pending restricted free agent. He just completed a one-year, $5.2-million contract signed in October 2020.
The Sabres selected Reinhart second overall in the 2014 NHL Draft. He totaled 25 goals and 15 helpers in 54 games last season. In 454 career contests, he's scored 134 goals and contributed 161 assists.
Levi, meanwhile, was a seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2020. The 19-year-old starred for Canada at the 2021 world juniors, going 6-1-0 with a .964 save percentage and a 0.75 goals-against average in the tournament.
