The Amerks are two days away from their season opener when the Grand Rapids Griffins come to the Blue Cross Arena. High expectations for an Amerks squad with plenty of young talent that will eventually be in the NHL.

All but six players on roster were born in the 1990's. Those 1980's babies include a new face. Defenseman Alexander Sulzer was sent down by the Sabres earlier in the week. Sulzer appeared in 17 games with Buffalo last season. Now it's not an ideal position for Sulzer to be demoted, but while he's in Rochester, he'll be one of the guys to set an example.
