While representing your team is a great honor, one Buffalo sports star took the headlines this weekend by getting engaged.

Asplund was drafted 33rd overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2016 NHL draft and spent time playing in Sweden, Rochester, and Buffalo so far during his career.

He has played in 26 games so far this season for the Sabres scoring two goals and adding 6 assists. During his NHL career, Asplund has played in 163 games scoring 18 and tallying 31 assists for a total of 49 points.

Hopefully, the newly engaged couple will be celebrating the NHL playoffs this season.

The Sabres haven't made the playoffs since 2011 and are currently just one point out of the playoff picture coming back from the NHL all-star break.

The Sabres have 56 points while the Pittsburg Penguins and the New York Islanders are just ahead of Buffalo with 57 points.

The Sabres look to get back on track this Saturday as they return home and host the Calgary Flames at KeyBank Center.
