'There's certainly no shortage of Sabre hopefuls, and one prospect who's hoping to remain in Buffalo at the start of October – rather than report to AHL Rochester – is 23-year-old centre Jiri Novotny. "I feel so much better at this training camp than in past years, but I don't really know why," said Novotny, a native of the Czech Republic. "I feel lighter on my feet, faster on the ice. I don't know, I just feel better."'
Novotny hopes to make mark with Sabres
