Sabres Report: Statistical Update for February

By Ken McKenna

The chill winds of February being experienced in the Western New York area seem to have blown right on down throughout the Buffalo Sabres’ organization. The big club is struggling with injuries and losses, as is the farm club in Rochester. There are a couple of prospects in the junior ranks that have played well of late, but, for the most part, few Buffalo draftees are currently setting the hockey world on fire.

Against that backdrop, then, comes the latest statistical rundown for the Sabres’ prospects. 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 league 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), WJC= World Junior Championships. Statistics are from games played through February 16th, 2003.
