Eight NHL teams will send some of their best prospects to the 2013 Traverse City NHL Prospects tournament, which is being hosted by the Detroit Red Wings from Sept. 5-9.

That tournament lists four teams in the Gordie Howe division (the Red Wings, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues) along with four teams in the Ted Lindsay division (Buffalo Sabres, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Rangers).

The Sabres rolled out their roster on Thursday, with standout players including 2012 first-rounders Mikhail Grabovski and Zemgus Girgensons along with 2013 first-rounders Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov. (Click here for their complete roster.)

Carolina also shared its group today, highlighted by this year’s fifth pick Elias Lindholm and 2011 first-round choice Ryan Murphy. (The full roster is located here.)

    I think the Red Wings said months ago that Danny DeKeyser would play in this tournament, since he joined the team straight from college, played the last 17 games of the season, then was sidelined by a broken thumb in the first playoff game. I still think if he hadn’t broken his thumb, the Wings would’ve gotten past Chicago and possibly go on to win the Cup. He did play for the AHL champions, the Grand Rapids Griffins, after the Wings had been eliminated.

    The Sabres won this thing last year – in their first year of competition.

    Can they do it again?
