BEYOND THE BOARDS
DEVELOPMENT CAMP ROSTER BREAKDOWN

      Rasmus Ristolainen
The Buffalo Sabres are expected to host 40 players at their development camp this week, with a majority of those players entering the organization via the last three draft classes.

All 19 of the Sabres' picks from the 2012 and 2013 NHL drafts should be there, as well as five of their six picks from 2011.

Three invitees -- Mikhail Grigorenko, Mark Pysyk and Chad Ruhwedel -- played with the Sabres last season. Defenseman Brayden McNabb played 25 games in Buffalo during the 2011-12 season. 

Twelve members of last season's Rochester Americans squad are set to be in attendance as well, including McNabb, Pysyk, Zemgus Girgensons, Daniel Catenacci, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc and Connor Knapp.

Tyler Gjurich, an undrafted invitee, scored 97 points in 53 games for the Buffalo Jr. Sabres in 2012-13.

Camp concludes with “Sabres Summer Fan Fest” on Friday, featuring a scrimmage at 4 p.m. and an outdoor concert by 10,000 Maniacs at Canalside. Fans can purchase tickets for the event here.
