Notes: 2012-13: Selected by Buffalo in 1st round (14th overall) of the NHL Draft.

Latvian forward playing for the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL is the 18th-ranked North American skater by NHL Central Scouting...Recorded 24 goals and 55 points in 49 games for the Fighting Saints in 2011-12...Also represented Team Latvia at the 2012 World Junior Championship...Has committed to play college hockey this fall at the University of Vermont...Has excellent size and grit, but scouts wonder if his offensive skill set will translate to the NHL level...Even without a dynamic offensive game, many believe Girgensons could be a productive two-way center in the NHL.
