Americans' defensive tandem of McNabb, Ruhwedel looking to grow into NHL defensemen

*

After a slow start to the 2013-14 season, the Rochester Americans seem to have righted the ship heading into November. A big part of their recent success has been two defensemen that are poised to play at the next level in the very near future.



After finishing his third season with UMass-Lowell, Chad Ruhwedel made the jump straight to the NHL last season, finishing the year in Buffalo with the Sabres. In seven games in April, 2013, Ruhwedel went scoreless with an even plus/minus rating.

This season, after the Buffalo Sabres drafted two defensemen in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft, Ruhwedel finds himself beginning his first full professional season in the American Hockey League (AHL) with the Americans. read more

Sabres are deep on the backend and there's lots of size. Ruhwedel adds some nice skill to go along with Pysyk, throw in an RR, and Zhardov, Myers and maybe a Weber, not a bad group too work with.

McNabb and McCabe as well. Buffalo is deep on the blue line potential talent. We'll have to wait and see who develops into what, but as of now there is a great deal of potential there.

From what I remember last year, he was pretty poised and smart. At this point that is what we need on defense and I would rather have him in the line-up than McBain or Tallinder.

I still want Aaron Ekblad. Never have too much D. Chances all these guys work out is very slim anyways.
