NEWS: Sabres Send Seven to Rochester

Buffalo gets started early, sends players back before AHL camp starts.

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Sabres wasted no time this evening in beginning their roster cutdown, prior to the start of the Rochester Americans’ camp on Monday.

Timing was somewhat unexpected, with the announcement coming during the first period of Saturday night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the moves themselves were not surprising.

All seven players sent back to Rochester were not expected to play a role for the Sabres out of camp.

More moves will likely come after the conclusion of Saturday’s game.

Stay tuned for more.
