Rasmus Dahlin, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres, posed for a picture with baseball’s top prospect, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Bisons’ a minor league affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays.
The Bisons invited Dahlin to throw out the first pitch before their game against the Toldeo Mud Hens, and the defenseman met the son of baseball Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero.
Before the game, the Bisons shared a photo of Guerrero Jr. and Dahlin, who each should soon make an impact at the highest level of his sport.
Dahlin wore a No. 26 Sabres jersey for the picture and a No. 26 Bisons jersey to throw out the first pitch, a generous high strike.
Guerrero Jr., like his father, wears No. 27.
But though Dahlin dabbled in baseball for the night, he can’t wait to get the 2018-19 NHL season started.
