Easy story here: Buffalo Sabres goaltender Dustin Tokarski is returning from his COVID infection any day now. Recently acquired Malcolm Subban is activated from injured reserve. Down trodden yet premier goalie prospect Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, UPL for short, is taking the heat in the meantime. Just about three healthy and active goalies up in Buffalo. Who goes down?
Easy answer, UPL.
The young but surprisingly been in the organization for awhile now netminer was deemed no higher than third on pre-season goalie rankings and his time in Rochester has done nothing to say the team was wrong.
