Finally, the Buffalo Sabres have four goaltending prospects playing below the AHL level.

Start things off with 19-year-old Sweden native Jonas Johansson. He’s split this year between Brynas IF Gavle (SweHL) and Almtuna IS (SWE-1).

With Brynas, Johansson has an 0-2-0 record, 6.30 GAA and .843 save percentage in 105 minutes played. (Obviously a small sample size.) With Almtuna, he’s 2-3-0 and has a 2.86 GAA, with 14 GA on 127 shots faced.

The newest goaltending prospect for the Buffalo Sabres is 22-year-old Jason Kasdorf, acquired via trade from the Winnipeg Jets. Kasdorf is currently playing for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He has a record of 9-15-0, 3.06 GAA and .896 save percentage.

There’s also Cal Petersen, playing in his first season of college hockey with Notre Dame. Petersen has an 8-12-2 record and a 2.52 GAA. He has recorded three shutouts and played over 1200 minutes.

Finally, playing overseas is netminder Linus Ullmark (pictured above from the Buffalo Sabres 2012 development camp). Ullmark has played in 30 games for MODO Hockey Ornskoldsvik this season, registering an overall 11-17-0 record. He has a 3.02 GAA and .910 save percentage in 1,707 minutes played.
