We have a young but hopefully brewing duo in Devon Levi and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. The Buffalo Sabres neglected to bring in an experienced goaltender, but luckily, Levi has already showcased his skills at the NHL level. He just needs to put together a steady 2023-24 campaign, and with more experience in front of him in the defensive rotation and at forward, it’s a real possibility.
The same goes for Luukkonen, who has more experience than Levi. However, Luukkonen also showed that he would have a hard time putting the entire team on his shoulders. If the Blue and Gold stay healthy, especially on defense, Luukkonen could shine when he’s called on.
Eric Comrie is the third man, but there won’t be enough room on the 23-man roster to keep him aboard. Therefore, he’s either heading to Rochester, or a goaltender-needy team may end up claiming him on waivers.
