I talked about Jordan Leopold when he signed here, and said basically if he wasn’t a liability out there and notched 8 to 10 goals, he’d be a solid pickup. Well, it’s safe to say he’s exceeded expectations there. He’s got 7 goals and 9 assists, which is third in points on the Sabres (and second in goals behind the 9 that Vanek and Roy have). Jordan has been on the ice for a ton of Sabres goals and a fair number against, but has been averaging quite a bit of ice time so it’s understandable.
I guess I don’t have a specific goal in mind for this post other than to give Darcy and company some recognition for this signing. I liked it when it happened, and it’s turned out pretty darn well for Buffalo. Thanks, Jordan.
