Sabres suspend Bogosian for failure to report to the AHL

The Sabres have suspended Bogosian without pay for failing to report to the Amerks

The Buffalo Sabres announced this evening that they’ve suspended defenseman Zach Bogosian without pay for failing to report to the Rochester Americans of the AHL. Here is the statement from the Sabres:

Bogosian’s agent Darren Ferris also released a statement to various reporters after the suspension was announced:

While Bogosian is suspended his pro-rated cap hit comes off the books while he’s out. The two sides can move towards a contract termination and still look for a trade with the trade deadline a week away. The Sabres can also decide to leave him suspended for the remainder of the season if they would like.

Cap Friendly broke down the cap implications:

We’ll see where this takes us in the next few days.

In an unrelated move, the Sabres recalled forward Scott Wilson to join the team for their trip to Ottawa. Michael Frolik won’t make the trip due to illness and Johan Larsson missed practiced today for a maintenance day.

Also, goaltender Andrew Hammond was returned to the Amerks.
