2017 Sabres Development Camp Roster

Published by, 7-7-2017

The Buffalo Sabres youngins will hit the HarborCenter ice beginning tomorrow for the start of Sabres 2017 Development Camp. The stated goals of the four-day event, as per the team are to "introduce prospective players to professional work habits and organizational standards" while giving the players "an opportunity to become familiar with the team and the resources available to them through the Sabres development staff and the performance team."

Forty players are scheduled to attend the camp lead by "veterans" like Justin Bailey and Nick Baptiste, both of whom started their pro careers in 2015-16 and have well over 100 games of professional experience. Others like collegians Connor Hurley, Anthony Florentino and Sean Malone, all 2013 draft picks who are either still in school or recently graduated, attended their first D-Camp four years ago and are back again. Buffalo natives Bailey and Malone will be joined by another local product in Austin Osmanski of East Aurora.

Buffalo's entire 2017 draft class, lead by eighth-overall pick Casey Mittelstadt and Marcus Davidsson (37th,) is also scheduled to be introduced to their new team at camp and we also get visits from Victor Olofsson and Rasmus Asplund who both played in the top Swedish hockey league last year. There are also five invites including two 18 yr. old goalies who went undrafted in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
