Grigorenko seeks more permanent role with Sabres - Article Photos 1/4

In this Jan. 13, 2013 photo, Buffalo Sabres first-round draft pick Mikhail Grigorenko, right, talks with equipment manager Rip Simonich following the Sabres, first team practice, at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, N.Y. Where every other Sabres player has been assigned a stall in the locker room for training camp this week, the 18-year-old rookie center is relegated to an armless chair and a TV stand in the corner, an obvious reminder that the Sabres aren't yet ready to award him a spot on their season-opening roster.
