Luukkonen is on active roster?

Recommended Posts

I just looked at the Sabres roster and its showing Luukkonen.  Are the sabres running with 3 goaltenders

His gigantic melon was spotted on the bench during the home opener ceremony

He's injured. I am fairly certain they want him rehabbing in Buffalo with all the support that comes with it.

Unfortunately the game was blacked out for me. I was very disappointed to be honest. 

 

Glad to hear he is with the big team already

He won't be. He will be sent to Rochester when he comes off of IR.

Like the Liger said, he isn't actually on the Sabres.  And looking at NHLNumbers, it looks like his salary doesn't count against the cap. 

His injuries occurred in Junior and he had surgery over the summer.  He'll be an Amerk when he heals up and a Sabre a year or 2 after that.

He was introduced during the home opener.  I guess they figured why not, let him enjoy the bright lights.

And the $$$.  I don't think the NHL allows the Sabres to send an injured player down but showing the future number 1 (fingers crossed) a little love could go a long way.
