Where: First Niagara Rink at the HarborCenter

Tickets: $20, general admission


Players to Watch

Team Gold

Alexander Nylander - The Sabres' first-round pick in this year's draft, Nylander is the star of the camp. He's impressed so far, showing off his superb stickhanding ability. Today will be fans first opportunity to see him against other Sabres prospects in game situations.

Hudson Fasching - Buffalo was able to get a look at Fasching after the conclusion of his senior season at Minnesota. He showed his potential as a power forward on the team in the future, scoring a goal in his Sabres' debut. He suited up for the U.S. at the World Championships, scoring two points in 10 games.

Brendan Guhle - The young defenseman lasted a lot longer at last year's training camp than most people expected. A big hit in the preseason ended his run for a spot on the NHL roster, but the young defenseman is confident he'll be in a similar position again this season.

Will Borgen - A fourth-round pick in last year's draft, Borgen impressed on the international level while playing for the U.S. at the U20 World Junior Championships. He had three assists in seven games at the tournament. After camp he'll be preparing for his sophomore season at St. Cloud State.

Team Blue

Evan Rodrigues - The man known as Jack Eichel's Boston University teammate made a name for himself with his play. He scored nine goals and 30 points in 72 AHL games and a goal and an assist in two games with the Sabres.

Nick Baptiste - A powerhouse in the OHL, Baptiste scored 13 goals and 28 points in 62 games in his first season with Rochester.

Justin Bailey - The Buffalo native made a nice impression both with the Americans and the Sabres in his first professional season. He scored a team-leading 20 goals and 25 assists in 70 games with the Americans. Despite scoring zero points in eight NHL games he didn't look out of place.

Rasmus Asplund - The Sabres traded up to snag Asplund in the second round as part of the Dmitry Kulikov trade. The 5-foot-11 center was in the middle of Nylander's line on team Sweden at the World Junior Championships.
