Since his promotion from Rochester, Curtis Lazar has shown that he belongs in blue-and-gold

Following a strong showing in training camp this summer, fans of the Buffalo Sabres were generally surprised that free-agent newcomer, Curtis Lazar was sent down to the AHL. As one of the more noticeable players in preseason action (on top of the supposed “open competition” that was taking place), his presence seemed to fit right into what Ralph Krueger was trying to establish in the team’s bottom-six.

With 14 points in his first 18 games with the Rochester Amerks this season, Lazar quickly got his chance with the big club when Marcus Johansson went down with an upper-body injury.
