Buffalo Bills and Sabres owner Terry Pegula made a radio appearance on WGR-550 AM Tuesday to discuss the 2018 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship, which Buffalo is hosting this week.
Asked which players he is excited to see play in the tournament, Pegula said all of the Sabres' prospects, but specifically mentioned the forwards – Alex Nylander (Sweden), Casey Mittelstadt (USA) and Marcus Davidsson (Sweden).
"I want to see how they perform. It's pretty obvious our team in the NHL needs some goal-scoring," Pegula said. "So it'd be nice to see these guys fill the net a little bit."
The Sabres have scored the fewest goals in the NHL so far this season. The team also has goaltending prospect Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen of Finland in the tournament, as well as defenseman Vojtech Budik of the Czech Republic.
Much of the conversation on the "The Instigators" radio show with former Sabres Martin Biron and Craig Rivet also included a discussion of Sunday's Bills game and the controversial reversed Kelvin Benjamin touchdown call, during which Pegula said "we have to fix" replay in the NFL.
