It was a bit of a surprise to see Jost’s name on waivers Friday afternoon, as the 24-year-old came into the NHL with a lot of hype. That said, the 10th overall pick from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft has struggled to establish himself offensively through his first 354 career games, registering just 47 goals and 112 points over that span.

Jost’s time with the Wild was rather short-lived, as he was acquired near last years trade deadline from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Nico Sturm. He went on to record six points in 21 regular season games with the Wild in 2021-22, and had just three assists in 12 games this season prior to being placed on waivers.

Though Jost hasn’t lived up to expectations just yet, that could soon change. As mentioned, he is still relatively young at 24, and going to the Sabres could prove to be the best thing for him. This is a team who, despite some recent struggles, is on the up and up, and have several young talents who are beginning to blossom. With that said, they aren’t expected to make the playoffs in 2022-23, meaning they will be able to remain patient with a player like Jost, while also being able to give him all sorts of opportunities to become the player many had envisioned years ago.

The Sabers are set to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight at the Scotiabank Arena, though it isn’t expected Jost will suit up. He does, however, have a chance to make his Sabres debut on Tuesday night in another road tilt versus the Montreal Canadiens.
