|Girgensons: ready to compete|
Girgensons, who scored scored 45 goals and 104 points in his 100-game USHL career, is skilled, full-throttle power forward. He likes to play physical. He likes to take the puck hard to the net. The Sabres are firm in thinking that the 18-year old's mature body and mind will immediately translate to the professional game.
With an NHL spot within reach, the next stop for the Latvian Locomotive may very well in Rochester of the AHL. The Sabres will weigh what's best for Girgensons in this fall's training camp and go from there.
