Steve Ott is eager to get started with his new Buffalo teammates.
"I can't wait for the opportunity to throw my Buffalo Sabres jersey on," said Ott, who was dealt to the Sabres along with defenseman Adam Pardy in July for Derek Roy. "Hopefully it starts in October, and it's ready to go. I love this team. It's a young team, but it's molded right." Ott may get a chance to play center with Buffalo when he makes his debut. He will add energy and some scoring to the team this season.
