Sabres prospect Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen is one step closer to returning to Buffalo. Finland released the roster for its world junior training camp today, and Luukkonen was one of three goaltenders to make the list.
Buffalo selected him in the second round of this year's NHL Draft. The 18-year-old is playing in Finland's second league and has a .911 save percentage in 15 games played.
The Finnish camp will run Dec. 15-23, and the team will make its cuts prior to the start of the tournament Dec. 26. The world juniors will run in Buffalo until Jan. 5.
