The Buffalo Sabres announced today they will be holding a summer development camp from June 25-July 1 at Dwyer Arena on the campus of Niagara University in Lewiston, N.Y. There will be an on-ice session from 3-5 p.m. each day, followed by media availability.
The seven-day camp will feature a roster of 30 Sabres prospects, including recently signed college draft picks Nathan Gerbe
, Tim Kennedy and Chris Butler. Also in attendance will be Drew Stafford
, along with goaltender Jhonas Enroth
and defenseman Dennis Persson
. This will be the first appearance in North America for both players since signing with the Sabres in early June.
The players will take part in both on-ice and off-ice workouts. The goals of the camp are to give the prospective players the fundamental ideas of the Sabres playing system and the conditioning programs of an NHL player. The camp participants will also study and examine NHL rules and the successful techniques a player must possess to become a professional athlete.
