BUFFALO – After watching the first two preseason games, Sabres goalie Eric Comrie will likely be making his debut in tonight’s road contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Sabres, of course, expect Comrie, 27, to play a significant number of games this season or earn the starting job. He signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract during the offseason.
The rest of tonight’s game roster features mostly prospects and players ticketed for the Rochester Americans.
Center prospect Brandon Biro, who scored both goals in Tuesday’s 2-1 home win over the Philadelphia Flyers, wingers Filip Cederqvist, Isak Rosen and Linus Weissbach will be playing again.
Meanwhile, defenseman Jacob Bryson, wingers Anders Bjork, Victor Olofsson, Aleksandr Kisakov will be making their exhibition debuts.
The rest of tonight’s roster is below.
Forwards: Tyson Kozak, Peyton Krebs, Jiri Kulich, JJ Peterka, Jack Quinn and Mason Jobst.
Defense: Kale Clague, Casey Fitzgerald, Oskari Laaksonen, Chase Priskie and Peter Tischke.
Goalies: Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and Beck Warm.
The Sabres this morning returned four prospects – forward Josh Bloom and defensemen Vsevolod Komarov, Mats Lindgren and Spencer Sova – to their respective junior teams.
There are now 55 players left on the training camp roster.
