Sabres Trade Adam To Blue Jackets

News: Luke Adam was acquired by the Blue Jackets on Tuesday in exchange for forward Jerry D'Amigo.
Analysis: In an exchange of low-end prospects, Luke Adam will join a Blue Jackets organization that could end up finding a spot for him in the bottom-six ranks at some point later this season. For now, he'll stay in the AHL and report to Springfield. Adam had eight goals and 20 points over 27 games with the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester.

Sabres Place Adam On Waivers

News: Luke Adam was placed on waivers Saturday, a day after being assigned to Rochester, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Teams have until Monday to make a claim for Luke Adam since he was placed on waivers over the weekend. The raw power forward didn't have a good camp after being re-signed to a one-year deal over the summer. There is a chance he will be claimed by another team. The Sabres lost Corey Tropp on waivers to Columbus last year. However, a change of scenery might benefit Adam.

Sabres Send Adam To Rochester

News: Luke Adam was one of 11 players cut by the Sabres on Friday.
Analysis: Unless Luke Adam puts together an exceptional season, this could very well be his last season with Buffalo. The second-round pick from 2008 has size, strength and goal-scoring skill, but still hasn't been able to put it all together. His inconsistency is maddening. Adam signed a one-year extension over the summer and will be a restricted free agent at the end of the contract, but with the Sabres' deep pool of prospects they may not retain his rights. Adam has scored 44 goals in the AHL over the past two years but has just two goals in 16 games for the Sabres during that time.

Sabres' Adam On The Outside Looking In

News: Luke Adam is on the bubble and fighting for a roster spot based on the depth charts published by The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Luke Adam will play center on Johan Larsson's left wing and opposite of right winger Zac Dalpe. Dalpe was signed over the summer as additional depth while Larsson is also fighting for a roster spot. Adam returned to the Sabres after signing a one-year extension, but time is running out for the former second-round pick. In 12 games with the Sabres he recorded just one goal and 16 shots. When Adam is on his game, he can be a serviceable power forward, but his consistency has been poor. Adam will need to go through waivers if he is demoted, which provides an extra wrinkle to his situation. Last year, the Sabres waived Corey Tropp, and the same fate could await Adam if he has a poor showing at camp.

Adam Returns To Sabres

News: Luke Adam, who was given a qualifying offer by Buffalo in June, re-signed with the team Sunday on a one-year contract.
Analysis: A second-round pick in a pretty loaded 2008 draft class, Luke Adam has been one of the Sabres' most perplexing prospects. The 24-year-old can be a feared power forward when he is performing well, but those times can be quite rare. Adam had a good season for the Amerks but did little in 12 games with the Sabres (one goal, 16 shots). The Sabres are going to give Adam another year to prove himself, and on a team loaded with prospects, a poor performance could mean a change of scenery.

Sabres Retain Adam's Rights

News: Luke Adam was given a qualifying offer Monday, making him a Sabre for the forseeable future, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Luke Adam has been a constant tease for Sabres fans as a burgeoning power forward who just can't seem to bring his A-game every night. Adam matched a career-best 29 goals in the AHL this season and earned a 12-game audition with the Sabres, scoring a goal and four penalty minutes. A second-round pick from 2008, the Sabres have been quite patient with Adam, though his next extension may be his last with the Sabres. He'll get plenty of chances to make the big club next year as the team continues to re-build and give quality ice time to their developing players.

Sabres Send Adam To AHL

News: The Sabres have sent Luke Adam to AHL Rochester.
Analysis: Luke Adam, who has just one goal in 12 games with the big club to date, returns to Rochester where he has notched a team-high 27 tallies in 53 AHL contests. His demotion coincides with the return of Marcus Foligno to the Buffalo lineup.

Sabres Recall Adam

News: The Sabres recalled Luke Adam from AHL Rochester on Friday.
Analysis: Luke Adam was brought up to take the roster spot of Marcus Foligno, who will miss the rest of the season after suffering a lower-body injury Thursday night. Adam appeared in 10 games with the Sabres earlier this season and tallied a goal and four PIM.

Sabres Send Adam Back To Rochester

News: Luke Adam was sent back down to AHL Rochester on Saturday.
Analysis: Luke Adam was brought up Friday on an emergency basis but with Chris Stewart and Zemgus Girgensons on the mend, his presence is no longer needed. He's a gifted wing and has 42 points over 42 games for the Americans, so he'll be back up at some point.

Sabres' Recall Adam On Emergency Basis

News: The Sabres recalled Luke Adam on an emergency basis Friday, the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Luke Adam is a physical player who can play center or wing, and may draw into the lineup Friday after injuries to Chris Stewart and Zemgus Girgensons on Thursday. One of Rochester's best players, Adam had 42 points in 42 games at the time of his call-up. He fell out of favor in previous seasons for inconsistent production, but will get another look as new general manager Tim Murray continues to assess his players. He has the potential to score 20 goals as a power forward in the NHL. He has one goal in nine games with Buffalo this season.

Luke Adam, C, BUF Sabres Demote Adam

Luke Adam

Sabres Demote Adam

News: The Sabres have sent Luke Adam down to AHL Rochester.
Analysis: He was a healthy scratch in the Sabres' most recent game against Calgary, and Luke Adam has been quiet in nine games with Buffalo this season, providing just one goal during that span. Going back to Rochester will get Adam some playing time, especially with the team headed to the Spengler Cup tournament in Switzerland at the end of the month. The Sabres demoted Mark Pysyk and Brayden McNabb as well to get them more playing time.

Sabres' Adam Scores First Goal in Win

News: Luke Adam scored his first goal of the 2013-14 season during the Sabres' 3-2 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Friday.
Analysis: Luke Adam was just called up last week and had only appeared in four games this season. He has a great opportunity to prove himself again during what has been an awful season for the Sabres. If he can stay healthy, soemthing that's been a problem for him in the past, he stands a good chance of staying up with Buffalo for the duration of the season.

Sabres Recall Adam

News: The Sabres recalled Luke Adam from AHL Rochester on Wednesday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Luke Adam led Rochester in scoring with 13 goals and 18 points through the team's first 15 games. Two years ago, Adam was on his way to becoming a top-six forward for the Sabres but injuries affected his development as he fell out of favor under Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier. Now, given a blank slate, Adam has a chance to regain his spot at the top of Buffalo's depth chart. The 6'2" winger plays a simple north-south game and gets to the high-traffic areas to score goals, exactly the type of game head coach Ted Nolan likes. Adam could be a sneaky, waiver wire pickup if he continues his torrid scoring pace. He'll play on the second line Thursday night against the Flyers on the right wing with Steve Ott and Zemgus Girgensons.

Sabres' Adam Clears Waivers

News: Luke Adam cleared waivers on Sunday, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: He'll head to AHL Rochester to start the season.

Sabres Place Adam On Waivers

News: Luke Adam was placed on waivers by the Sabres on Saturday, the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Luke Adam saw only light duty with the Sabres last season and didn't make a strong case in the preseason for one of the team's final forward spots. He'll have to clear waivers first before reporting to AHL Rochester, where he spent most of the 2012-13 campaign.

Adams Signs One-Year Deal With Sabres

News: The Sabres signed Luke Adam to a one-year deal on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Luke Adam started out like a house of fire two seasons ago with the big club, but his career has really cooled off in the last season and a half and he only played four games with the Sabres in 2013. He'll look to win one of the final forward spots in what should be a pretty competitive training camp as the Sabres try to rebuild after several failed seasons.

Sabres Sent Adam To AHL

News: Luke Adam has been returned to AHL Rochester by the Sabres.
Analysis: Luke Adam, who has a goal in four games with the big club to date, returns to Rochester, where he has logged 32 points and 50 PIMs in 64 games.

Sabres' Adam Back In Thursday

News: Luke Adam will return to the lineup Thursday after being a healthy scratch Tuesday. He has one goal in three games played this season.
Analysis: Luke Adam will take the place of enforcer John Scott, whose role diminishes against a speedy Habs lineup.

Sabres' Adam Gets Scratched

News: Luke Adam, who had played the last three games due to Thomas Vanek's injury, was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's loss at Winnipeg when Vanek was able to return to the lineup.
Analysis: Luke Adam was only seeing between nine and 12 minutes of ice time even when he was in the lineup, and almost no power play time, so his best bet for a more extensive audition would seem to be if the Sabres fall completely out of the playoff chase.

Sabres' Adam Recalled From AHL

News: Luke Adam was recalled from AHL Rochester on Monday.
Analysis: With Thomas Vanek (upper body) unlikely to play Tuesday, the Sabres went ahead and gave Luke Adam the call to help out in the short term.

Sabres' Adam Headed For Training Camp Battle

News: The battle for the Sabres' last center positions will be between Luke Adam, Matt Ellis, Cody McCormick, and 18-year-old Mikhail Grigorenko, the Sabres' first-round draft pick many believe could be NHL-ready, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: That's assuming Tyler Ennis and Cody Hodgson are the team's top two centers and the Sabres don't make a major trade before training camp. But Luke Adam can also play wing, so that gives him a second shot at making the team. He put up 20 points in 52 games last season, but a closer look shows that was almost all due to a hot start, one that had him looking like a potential Rookie of the Year candidate. But he hit a major slump and didn't register a point for 20 straight games, and his disappointing play even carried over after being sent back to the AHL. He's only 22 and holds much promise, but also has something to prove this summer.

Adam Struggling For Sabres Affiliate

News: Luke Adam has just two goals in 15 games since being assigned to the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester on Feb. 11.
Analysis: Luke Adam started the season in the NHL and was getting early Calder Trophy consideration after posting 11 points in his first 11 games. A massive slump earned him a ticket to Rochester, and he hasn't been able to regain his offensive touch against AHL competition. He remains one of Buffalo's top offensive prospects, but his value in keeper leagues has certainly taken a tumble.

Buffalo Sends Adam To AHL

News: Buffalo assigned Luke Adam to the AHL on Saturday, Buffalo News writer Mike Harrington reports.
Analysis: Luke Adam got into a slump recently for Buffalo, failing to post a point since Dec. 17. He'll beat up on the AHL for a bit and return to the NHL level eventually.

Sabres Will Sit Adam Friday Night

News: With Thomas Vanek returning to the lineup Friday night, Luke Adam will be a healthy scratch again for the Sabres, according to Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Luke Adam, who has ten goals and ten assists this season, only has nine points (6 G, 3 A) since Nov. 2, and staggeringly has not popped up on the scoresheet since Dec. 17. It feels like Adam is more likely to see his next ice in the AHL and not with Buffalo, so long as the Sabre forwards stay healthy.

Sabres' Adam Scratched Tuesday

News: Coach Lindy Ruff scratched Luke Adam on Tuesday hours after saying Adam's journey to Ottawa for the All-Star festivities probably wasn't worth it for his forward. "Luke has had a tough run," Ruff told The Buffalo News. "Like any young player, he's going to have his ups and downs. He had a couple tough games on the road. I actually though that [Matt] Ellis and [Cody] McCormick had been playing better and the puck possession was good. It's not earth-shattering that a young player sits out a game. I think it's the trials and tribulations a lot of time, but he's got to stay around the puck more."
Analysis: Although Luke Adam isn't worth starting right now -- he's gone 17 games without a goal and has just one point in the last 22 outings -- the young forward will almost certainly find his way back into the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers after star winger Thomas Vanek suffered an injury against the Habs.
