Sabres Report: Statistical Update for November

By Ken McKenna

In the past, I’ve updated statistics at each of the player profiles at the Hockey’s Future Buffalo Sabres home page. Rather than force you to look at each individual profile, however, it would seem the best way to provide statistical updates is simply to put all the data in one place. As a result, this article represents the first in a series of monthly statistical updates for all the prospects of the Buffalo Sabres.

I will eventually update the information at each profile, most likely at the end of the season, so readers should consult these articles for the prospect statistics during the season.

All prospects listed on the Sabres’ page are included in this table. All European players not designated with a number next to their country of origin (ex. CZE vs. CZE1) are playing in the top leagues in those countries, with the numbers next to the country abbreviation indicating participation in a lower league. Other abbreviations: NHL= National Hockey League, AHL= American Hockey League, OHL= Ontario Hockey League, QMJHL= Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, HE= Hockey East (NCAA), WCHA= Western Collegiate Hockey Association (NCAA). Statistics are from games played through November 24th, 2002.
