BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Sabres are offering fans a glimpse of the future this week, with the majority of the team's high-end prospects on display at the Sabres Development Camp.
Every 2013 draft pick was on the ice today, including first-rounders Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov. Ristolainen said today, if he does not make the Sabres roster out of training camp, he has a contract waiting for him back home in Finland.
Roughly 40 prospects in all took part in the team's two on-ice sessions today, including several local players. 2013 draft picks Justin Bailey and Sean Malone were both part of the afternoon group on the ice, along with last year's first-round pick Mikhail Grigorenko, among others.
The team will hold two more sessions Thursday, one from 10:30am-12pm and the other from 2:15pm-3:30pm. Buffalo will wrap up the three-day camp with a scrimmage Friday at 4pm. All sessions are open to the public.
