Sabres Prospects: Top 25 Weekly Recap

New, comments

The Buffalo Sabres have been struggling as of late so with a couple of days off, let's take a look at what some of the future Sabres have done this past week. It's always fun to look at the ups and downs the youngsters have at every level whether that be the NHL, AHL, Junior or NCAA.

It seems that every week we are talking about Luke Adam and Corey Tropp and they both remain at the top of their respective squads point leaders but they have both cooled off considerably. The story this week has been the resurgence of the Portland Pirates, the play of Zack Kassian and what Jacob Lagace has done in the "Q".

J.P. Lamoureaux had three consecutive wins this week while top Sabres prospect Jhonas Enroth can do nothing more tha watch the teams success. Lamoureaux was signed in the off-season and after a slow start he has been really good as of late. He recieved some offensive help from Philip Gogulla and Nathan Gerbe to name a few.

Jacob Lagace has put up good numbers all season but he was especialy good this week. In three games Lagace had three goals and two assists and now has more goals than Luke Adam on the season. Lagace is not has highly touted as Adam but he is trying his best to turn some heads and move up the prospect rankings.
