Alex Nylander will again be playing in Buffalo ... and for Sweden.
The Sabres have loaned the forward to Team Sweden for the world junior championships. The 19-year-old will leave the Rochester Americans for the tournament, which will be held from Tuesday through Jan. 5 in Buffalo.
Nylander has two goals and four points in 15 games for the Amerks. He started his season late after suffering a lower-body injury during the Sabres' prospect challenge in September.
The winger represented Sweden in last year's world juniors and recorded five goals and 12 points in seven games.
