He's likely to play between Tyler Ennis and Steve Ott. "He's going to get a good opportunity," coach Ron Rolston said. "I like everything about him. His attitude, the way he works, preparation. He's a good detail player. This will give him a good opportunity to play with some good players and show us what he can do. It's a good thing. He's ready." It will mark his first game in a Sabres uniform after he was a healthy scratch in Wednesday's loss to Detroit.

Johan Larsson was an extra forward during Monday's practice.

Johan Larsson enjoyed a very good game Thursday in Buffalo's exhibition win over Carolina.

He recorded two goals and won 12 of 17 faceoffs. "I thought he was arguably our best forward," coach Ron Rolston said. "He was on tonight. He was good in the circle. Those are things that we're looking for out of centermen, obviously, in the faceoff circle, but he's got a lot of grit to his game." Larsson has played in all three preseason games so far and could end up as Buffalo's third-line center following camp.

The Minnesota Wild had a difficult time agreeing to send forward Johan Larsson to the Sabres in the trade that saw them acquire Jason Pominville this week.

Larsson was a favorite of many scouts in the Minnesota organization after he was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but the team understands that a player of Pominville's caliber would require a steep price. "Scouts, when you trade a first-round pick, it’s always a little uneasy feeling probably, but when you get a good player [like Pominville], it’s fine," said Wild Assistant GM Brent Flahr. "Probably more uneasiness comes from trading a guy like Larsson, who you draft and get to know a bit and appreciate. I’m a big fan of Johan Larsson. I think everybody knows that, but that’s the business." The new Sabre profiles as a solid two-way player in the NHL once he reaches his full potential.
