The Buffalo Sabres have released the 40-man roster for their 2013 Development Camp. The camp, which runs from July 10-12, features a total of 36 Sabres picks and/or players on their first contracts, as well as four undrafted invites. Joel Armia and Johan Larsson had prior commitments and have been excused from attending. Both Armia and Larsson have spent time in Buffalo this offseason.

As far as undrafted invitations, Lake Superior State defender Kevin Czuczman will be attendance for a second-straight year. OJHL Most Valuable Player Tyler Gjurich of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres will be skating prior to joining the University of Maine. Forward Andrew Black of the EJHL's Jersey Hitmen will be on the ice. The EJHL's Player of the Year, Black is committed to Colgate University. Eden, NY native Alex Iafallo will follow up his successful season with the Fargo Force (USHL) before heading west to NCAA power Minnesota-Duluth.
