Armia, who is currently in the early stages of a mandatory armed forces commitment, scored 18 goals and 38 points with Assat in 2011-12. He started slow (11 points in first 25 games) but heated up right before the World Junior Championships, where he scored five goals and seven points in seven tourney games. The hot hand carried that momentum forward, racking up 20 points (10+10) in the final 23 games before a knee injury forced an early exit after just three playoff contests.
The 6'3 wing was said to have been given a Friday deadline to sign when the offer was tendered last week. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll attend Sabres d-camp following the draft, but the masses will surely get another glimpse of the future scoring line forward over the winter at the 2013 World Junior Championship.
