Back to Buffalo

Ex-Terrier All American Mike Grier returns to the Buffalo Sabres, after signing a one-year free agent contract. The 34-year-old winger spent the past two seasons with the San Jose Sharks where he was an alternate captain.

► David Warsofsky and Vinny Saponari, who have been in Lake Placid this past week at the U.S. Junior National Team evaluation camp, both made it through the first group of cuts as the squad was reduced from 42 to 29 players. Warsofsky is one of 10 remaining blueliners and Saponari is one of 15 forwards. Tomorrow night, Team USA plays the first of four games against Russia. Camp concludes on August 15.

Ex-Terrier John Hynes, who recently was joined the Penguins’s AHL affiliate coaching staff, is assisting Jr. National Team coach Dean Blais during the evaluation camp. USA Hockey Media Guide.

► The BU Showcase for high school and prep players began its second season at Walter Brown Arena on August 10. Former Associate Head Coach David Quinn and Mike Bavis, who now holds that position, are the directors, assisted by BU strength and conditioning coach Mike Boyle and numerous other college coaches.
