Sabres pass on signing Buffalo native Alex Lepkowski

BUFFALO – The Sabres didn’t sign defenseman Alex Lepkowski, the 137th overall pick in 2011, before the midnight deadline, so the 20-year-old will re-enter the NHL Entry Draft later this month.

Lepkowski, a Buffalo native, just finished his fourth season in the Ontario Hockey League.

The fifth-round pick had zero goals, nine points and 78 penalty minutes in 60 games this season with the Barrie Colts.
