Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier announced today that forward Luke Adam has been recalled from the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League.
Adam (6’2”, 215 lbs., 6/18/1990) is currently second on the Pirates in scoring with 10 points (5+5) in 8 games. His 10 points lead all AHL rookies, and his five goals are tied for the rookie lead.
The native of St. John’s, Nfld., was named the AHL’s Reebok/player of the week after recording a four-point game (2+2) in his professional debut with Portland on Oct. 9 in a 6-5 win over Manchester.
Adam was selected by the Sabres in the second round (44th overall) of the 2008 Entry Draft.
