BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Joel Armia does not want to wait any longer to make his NHL debut. The 2011 first round draft pick is one of several players battling for a roster spot in training camp with the Sabres.
Armia played the last two seasons in Finland, but will transition to the US this season. Whether he starts the season in Rochester or Buffalo is up in the air, although Armia says he has not even considered the possibility of being sent to the minors.
"My goal is to play in Buffalo, so I haven't thought about anything else," said Armia.
Armia is on a line with Johan Larsson and Tyler Ennis Tuesday night in Buffalo's preseason matchup at Columbus.
