News: Neuvirth is set to battle Jhonas Enroth in training camp for top goaltending duties for the Sabres, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. Impact: Neuvirth, who was acquired by the Capitals at the trade deadline last season, only appeared in two games with his new squad before a hip injury ended his season. He's now fully recovered from the issue, and should see a roughly even workload with Enroth in training camp while the coaching staff looks to proclaim a victor. Both goalies have similar career numbers that would seem to confer neither an advantage, but Enroth's greater longevity in the organization probably makes him the early frontrunner. Even so, Neuvirth shouldn't be written off, particularly because of his familiarity with new goalie coach Arturs Irbe. Under Irbe's watch in Washington in 2010-11, Neuvirth enjoyed the best season of his career, going 27-12-4 with a 2.45 GAA and .914 save percentage. Don't expect the Sabres to announce their No. 1 netminder until late in training camp, with the team possibly waiting up until the morning skate of their Oct. 9 regular season opener against Columbus.(RotoWire, )
