BEYOND THE BOARDS
LUKE ADAM NAMED TO AHL ALL-ROOKIE TEAM

Buffalo Sabres prospect and Portland Pirates forward Luke Adam was named to the American Hockey League's 2010-11 All-Rookie Team today. The team, which is made up three forwards, two defensemen and a goaltender, was voted on by AHL coaches, players and media in each of the League's 30 member cities.

Luke Adam
Adam has appeared in 19 games for the Sabres this season, recording three goals and one assist.  The 6-foot-2, 203-pound forward made his NHL debut on Oct. 26 in Philadelphia, and scored his first NHL goal in Boston on Dec. 7. 

Currently, Adam ranks 3rd on the Pirates in scoring with 54 points (25-29-54) in 49 games, which trails only Mark Mancari (32-32-64) and Marc-Andre Gragnani (12-48-60) for the team lead.  Both Mancari and Gragnani are currently with the Sabres.

Here’s what the AHL’s official press release had to say about Adam:

“The sixth Portland Pirates forward to be named to the All-Rookie team in the last six seasons (following Tyler Ennis, Nathan Gerbe, Tim Kennedy, Bobby Ryan and Ryan Shannon), Luke Adam notched four points on opening night and was named the first Reebok/AHL Player of the Week of the 2010-11 season. Adam has gone on to rank second among all AHL rookies in goals (25), points (54) and plus/minus (+22) in just 49 games with Portland while earning five NHL recalls to Buffalo, where the Sabres’ second-round draft pick in 2008 has three goals and one assist in 19 games. A 20-year-old native of St. John’s, N.L., Adam had an 11-game scoring streak from Feb. 26 to Mar. 22.”

The 20-year-old Adam was selected by the Sabres in the second round (44th overall) in the 2008 Entry Draft.
