McNabb was drafted by the Sabres in the third round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft (66th overall).
Deslauriers, 23, has played in 60 games with the Monarchs this season and has 39 points (18-2139) and 76 penalty minutes. He was originally selected by the Kings in the third round (84th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
