Adam tabbed; Kassian, McNabb miss cut

Luke Adam is one step closer to towards achieving a career goal, as the 6'1, 210-pound center has been named by Hockey Canada to the 36-man Selection Camp roster for the 2010 World Junior Championships.

Adam, 19, was chosen by the Sabres with the 44th overall pick in the 2008 draft. The St. John's, Newfoundland native is currently third in QMJHL scoring with 19 goals and 25 assists in 29 games, while being ten months removed from a spleen injury that saw him endure over 100 days of rehabilitation.

A pair of Buffalo's 2009 draft picks, Zack Kassian (1st round, 13th overall) and Brayden McNabb (3rd round, 66th overall), joined Adam at at Canada's Summer Evaluation Camp but were not chosen to skate in the final cutdown camp set to begin December 12th in Saskatoon.
