BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - West Seneca's Alex Lepkowki is a seasoned veteran, when it comes to the NHL Draft. This Sunday, the defenseman will likely be drafted for a second time.
The Buffalo Sabres made Lepkowski a 5th round selection back in 2011, but the team failed to sign him. Because Lepkowski is still only 20 years old, he is eligible to re-enter the draft again this year.
"It's a business, and they have to look out for what they have to do, and so do I," said Lepkowski. "It's kind of sad to see it happen like that, but I understand it at the same time."
There is a chance Lepkowski could be drafted even higher this time around. The NHL Draft is set for this Sunday, June 30th.
