Brian Michael Flynn (born July 26, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey Forward who is currently playing for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Brian Flynn played his high school hockey at a New England private school in Connecticut, Pomfret School. Undrafted, Flynn previously played for the Maine Black Bears in the NCAA Men's Division I Hockey East conference. In his senior year, Flynn's outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2011-12 Hockey East First-Team All-Stars.[1]

On March 28, 2012, Flynn agreed to terms on a two-way, entry-level contract with the Buffalo Sabres.[2] As Flynn was over the age of 22 when he entered the league, he was allowed to forgo the NHL Entry Draft and sign as a free agent.

During the lockout shortened 2012–13 season, Flynn was called up March 1, 2013 and scored his first NHL goal on March 7 against Johan Hedberg of the New Jersey Devils.
