Adam (6’2″, 206 lbs., 6/18/90) has played in parts of four seasons with the Sabres since being drafted by Buffalo in the second round (44th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. In 2013-14, Adam led the Sabres’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Rochester Americans, in goals and ranked second on the team in overall points with 49 (29+20) in 59 games played.
