2023 second-round pick Anton Wahlberg was the lone Buffalo Sabres prospect who participated in the World Junior Summer Showcase in Plymouth, Michigan this week after prospect Noah Ostlund was a late scratch for Team Sweden.
Wahlberg scored twice in four games against Finland and split squads for Team USA. The tournament is considered a preparatory for the upcoming 2024 IIHF World Junior in Gothenburg, Sweden this December.
Anton Wahlberg wires this one in for Sweden to tie Finland 1-1.

Ersson Signs With Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers solidified their goaltending situation with the signing of Samuel Ersson to a two-year contract extension, worth $2.9 million. The 23-year-old Ersson is entering the final year of his entry-level contract after splitting time between the NHL Flyers and AHL Lehigh Valley last season and could factor in with Philadelphia this season if they move Carter Hart in the final year of his deal.
