Buffalo Sabres Traverse City Roster
By Ryan Womeldorf

Buffalo Sabres Traverse City Roster
Several big-time prospects will be suiting up for the Sabres in Traverse City.

Buffalo - September 11, 2014 - It’s that time of the year for prospects around the NHL: the Traverse City tournament.

The eight-team tournament, starting Friday and running until Tuesday, features several top prospects as well as potential hidden gems that could be dotting NHL lineups as soon as this season. Buffalo joins the Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Carolina Hurricanes, Minnesota Wild, Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Rangers in the tournament.

Recently, the Sabres unveiled the roster for that tournament, featuring four first-round picks: Sam Reinhart, taken second overall in 2014, winger Joel Armia (16th overall, 2011), Rasmus Ristolainen (8th overall, 2013) and Nikita Zadorov (16th overall, 2013).

Here is your complete roster:


Joel Armia, Just Bailey, Nicholas Baptiste, Joseph Blandisi, William Carrier, Dan Catenacci, Eric Cornel, Colin Jacobs, Michael Joly, Vaclav Karabacek, Justin Kea, Brendan Lemieux, Reinhart, Jack Rodewald and Jordan Samuels-Thomas


Brady Austin, Ryan MacKinnon, Brycen Martin, Jacke McCabe, Ristolainen, Jared Walsh and Zadorov


Francois Brassard and Andrey Makarov

Though they’ll be playing against fellow prospects, this could give the Sabres a little bit of a better idea on where certain prospects are in their development. The team will no doubt be watching Armia closely, but McCabe, Reinhart and Zadorov, all on the cusp of becoming NHL regulars, should get heavy scrutiny throughout the weekend tournament.

The Sabres won the tournament in 2011 and finished 2013.
