Buffalo Sabres forward Mikhail Grigorenko has been ruled ineligible for the 2013 NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., due to the number of NHL games he played last season.

The Sabres are one of eight teams participating in the event, which runs Sept. 5-9. The Sabres are in the Ted Lindsey Division with the Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Rangers.

Quote of the Day
