Canada cuts Sabres' prospect from junior team

Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, the Sabres' prospect who set a record by scoring in eight straight games this season, will not get a chance to show his skills on the international level. Canada made its first round of cuts to the world junior roster, and Gauthier-Leduc was among them.

The defenseman, selected in the third round of the 2010 draft, has 18 goals and 47 points in 31 games for Rimouski of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Defenseman Mark Pysyk, the first-round pick in 2010, remains hopeful of playing in the world juniors, as does blue-liner Jamie Oleksiak. The world juniors, held last winter in Buffalo, will begin Dec. 26 in Edmonton and Calgary.
