Official Traverse City roster announced

The Buffalo Sabres announced their 24-man roster Tuesday for the 2013 Traverse City Prospects Tournament.  The eight-team gathering, which kicks off Thursday, Sept. 5 in Traverse City, Michigan, serves as the key component for prospect evaluations before veterans report for the main portion of training camp. The Sabres will be looking to defend their crown captured at the 2011 event. The 2012 tourney was a victim of last year's work stoppage.
