Sabres Prospects Showing Off At Scrimmage



The Buffalo Sabres finished off their five-day Development Camp with a three-team, three-on-three scrimmage at the HarborCenter on Thursday, showing off the offensive talents of the club’s top prospects from the last three drafts.

2023 first-rounder Zach Benson scored twice, as his Team Robert squad went 3-1 to win the tournament. Other prospects who impressed were 2023 second-rounder Anton Wahlberg, 2022 sixth-rounder Jake Richard, seventh-rounder Joel Ratkovic-Berndtsson, and Russian forwards Nikita Novikov and Viktor Neuchev.

Richard flashed some impressive stickhandling and scored three times, as did Ratkovic-Berndtsson, while Novikov and Neuchev each scored twice.
