Vanek, who is owned by the NHL Buffalo Sabres, but currently on duty with Rochester due to the NHL lockout, will stay in Austria an entire week and miss the AHL All-Star-Game as well as four league matches. I am sure it was the right decision. We will play France, the Ukraine and Kazakhstan. It will be tough, but I am sure we can beat them all, said Vanek.
