Green Valley native Remi Elie, who is playing this season for the Buffalo Sabres, recently marked his 100th career NHL game. Originally drafted by the Dallas Stars in 2013, he skated in 90 games with the Stars over the last two seasons, before being picked up by the Sabres this year. A nagging knee injury has limited his playing time to 10 games so far in 2018-19.
Remi Elie is on the move, having been picked off waivers by the NHL Buffalo Sabres, yesterday. The Green Valley resident was drafted by the Dallas Stars and had been with the organization for the last three seasons, split between the AHL-affiliate Texas Stars and the big club.
Following the surprise development, Elie bid adieu to his teammates. We will have more coverage in The News next week.

Green Valley's Remi Elie is back in the NHL.
After a late cut from the Dallas Stars training camp, Elie was loaned to the AHL Texas Stars, for whom he played the bulk of the last two seasons. In 129 games (including two this season) with the AHL club, Elie has 46 points.
Late last season, he was called up to Dallas, playing in 18 games and scoring 1 goal to go along with 6 assists.
The NHL club today announced his recall to Dallas, which is winless in two games this season.
Elie, a 6 ft. 1 lb., 215 lb. left winger was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (40th overall) of the 2013 NHL draft. His junior hockey career began in the CCHL with the Hawkesbury Hawks, before he went on to play for several OHL clubs.
Rémi Elie, of Green Valley, scored his first National Hockey League goal on Sunday, in a match against San Jose. Read the official news release here.
