Friday's Montreal Gazette featured a story on Juniors leading goal man, Luke Adam. Adam's father Russ had a cup of coffee with Toronto in 1982-83, and the burgeoning forward will look to achieve his own NHL dream in a Sabres sweater once his junior days are complete.
"I guess you have to say the Sabres are my favourite team now," said Adam, a lifelong Detroit Red Wings fan because of the proximity of his father's family in nearby Windsor. "Getting drafted was exciting for the whole family," the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder said. "But for me, it's another step along the way. I know there's a lot of work to do to get there (NHL). "I went to the Sabres' development camp for 10 days this summer and went back for training camp before the start of their season, and I learned an awful lot. When I left, they just told me to keep my cool and keep working hard. There's a lot of stuff I have to work on to get to the next level, but it's something I want to do. It's one of my goals."
