Brady Austin (born June 16, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently under a Professional Tryout Contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets and most recently played with the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League (NHL). Austin was selected in the seventh round (193th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Sabres.
Austin played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) from 2009–10 to 2013–14, collecting 29 goals and 81 assists for 110 points in 322 games.
On May 29, 2014, the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League signed Austin to a three-year entry level contract. After attending the Sabres training camp, Austin was reassigned to AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans, to begin his professional career in the 2014–15 season.
During the 2016–17 season, on March 20, 2017, Austin made his NHL debut vs. the Detroit Red Wings. This was also the final game the Sabres played at Joe Louis Arena.
At the conclusion of his entry-level contract, Austin as a restricted free agent did not receive a qualifying offer from the Sabres, releasing him to free agency on June 26, 2017.
