While the rest of us were still looking at the positive strides of Matt Poitras, Johnny Beecher, and Brandon Bussi from Sunday’s preseason-opening win over the Rangers, defensive prospect Mason Lohrei decided to give us the old, “Hellooooooo!” with his Tuesday night preseason effort in Buffalo.
One of the only positives from a rather dry 4-1 loss at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center, Lohrei not only skated in what was his first NHL preseason game of his career, but also spent the majority of the night as the B’s No. 1 defenseman.
And Lohrei did not drown in that performance, which came against strong competition, too.
