Sabres cut 17 from roster, Schneider and Catenacci on waivers

Justin Bailey and Evan Rodrigues among the players sent down.

The Sabres training camp roster is a bit more manageable, as the team has cut 17 players from the squad.

Justin Bailey, Evan Rodrigues and William Carrier are the most notable names who were sent to Rochester. Joining them are Eric Cornel, Jean Dupuy, Vaclav Karabacek, Justin Kea, Brady Austin, Brycen Martin and Jason Kasdorf.

Cole Schneider and Daniel Catenacci will both need to clear waivers to report to Rochester. Five additional players were released from their professional tryouts and will report to Rochester for training camp: Matthew Lane, Daniel Muzito-Bagenda, Mac Bennett, Paul Geiger and John Muse.

Buffalo's roster is now down to 33 players with three games remaining on the preseason schedule - 18 forwards, 12 defensemen and three goaltenders.

Among the forwards left in camp fighting for the 13th position on the roster are Derek Grant, Cal O'Reilly, Hudson Fasching, Alexander Nylander, Nicholas Baptiste and Giorgio Estephan.

With Rasmus Ristolainen not available for preseason games, Erik Burgdoerfer, Justin Falk, Taylor Fedun, Brendan Guhle, Casey Nelson and Tyson Strachan are making up the numbers. The six are likely to be trimmed down to one for the remaining defenseman roster spot.
