Sabres Alert

Sabres make roster moves

A day after stating that roster moves were highly likely, the Buffalo Sabres have begun to make those moves.

Those two being sent down solidifies what head coach Ted Nolan said yesterday afternoon.

“I didn’t realize how young they really were,” said Nolan. “The positions that they’re in and the capabilities of what they could do besides playing here.”

It is highly likely that the Sabres will recall a few players from Rochester as a result.

Stay tuned for the latest on this developing story.

Updated: John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports that the Sabres have spoke to Quebec today regarding sending Mikhail Grigorenko back, but nothing is official yet.

10:35 am – Patrick Kaleta is not present for the morning skate in Rochester. No word as to his status.

10:41 am – 

10:58 am – John Vogl reports that sources close to Kaleta say “nothing as of now” regarding return to Sabres.
