Sabres take Mark Adams at #134

The Buffalo Sabres have selected 6'2, 207-pound defenseman Mark Adams with pick #134 of the 2009 draft. Adams played at Malden Catholic the past three seasons, leading his club to the Super 8 semifinals in 2009 as a Catholic Conference All-Star. Physical and very involved offensively at the high school level, Adams is projected as a strong, smart two-way type of defender as a pro. Adams was selected in the 3rd round of the USHL draft by the Chicago Steel where he will toil for a season before joining Providence of Hockey East in 2010. Nicknamed "Roo", Adams is the first D1 player from Malden to go NCAA D1 since Keith Tkachuk. Not the most definitive video for his style, but something nonetheless:
