Development camp schedule set

By Mike Harrington

The Sabres have finalized their schedule for next week's development camp at First Niagara Center, which has been shortened to three days. All sessions are open to the public but times are subject to change.

The roughly 40 players will be split into two groups, with assignments announced next week.  On Wednesday July 10, Group 1 is scheduled from 10:30 a.m.-noon with Group 2 from 3-4:30. On Thursday July 11, Group 1 remains 10:30-noon while Group 2 goes from 2:15-3:30.

As previously announced, the Blue-Gold scrimmage is set for Friday, July 12 at 4 p.m (gates open at 3). Admission is $10 and includes a post-game concert by 10,000 Maniacs at Canalside.

All of the team's 2013 draft picks are scheduled to attend the camp, as our most prospects from the last couple of years. The only players excused to date are Johan Larsson (commitments in Sweden) and Joel Armia (wedding in Finland). Larsson was acquired from Minnesota in the Jason Pominville trade while Armia was the team's No. 1 draft choice in 2011.
