'"I never got the feeling that they might give me a real chance," Noronen, 22, said yesterday after the Sabres reassigned him to the Rochester Americans. He was a spectator for last night's 3-0 preseason loss to the Cleveland Barons but he'll start tonight's 7:35 exhibition finale against the Manitoba Moose at the ESL Sports Centre. "They said I didn't have that good of a camp, but what's the point if I wasn't going to get a chance anyway," Noronen said. "In practice I just tried to find my game."'
