Buffalo Sabres Prospects Stock Up/Stock Down - November 9, 2011

It is time for our Wednesday look at the Buffalo Sabres prospects that have not made the jump to the American Hockey League. It has been an up and down season for the American Hockey League guys in Rochester. It is more difficult to get a gauge on the progress of the younger prospects because they are scattered in all different leagues throughout the world.

(3GP 2G-2A-4P, +2) Kevin Sundher scored twice in a 5-3 loss to the Vancouver Giants.
Jerome Gauthier-Leduc - QMJHL 68 Dash_medium  (3GP 0G-2A-0P, +2) It wasn't an awful week by defenseman standards. Unfortunately for Gauthier-Leduc, it does not live up to his standards. Gauthier-Leduc has not scored a goal in his last 6 games, since an eight game goal scoring streak ended.

Up_medium

 (2GP 1G-3A-4P, +4) Pysyk had been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks and he may have finally turned the corner. He scored a goal to go along with three assists but most importantly, he was a plus-4 this week.
