Joe Finley Claimed by Islanders

Yesterday afternoon, the Buffalo Sabres placed defenseman Joe Finley on waivers with the intent of him playing out the season in Rochester with the Americans.

Finley to Rochester seemed like a mere formality until news came across on Twitter.

Joe Finley will immediately join the New York Islanders franchise, adding defensive depth to a team that lacks the aformentioned defensive depth.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie went on to confirm the news.

This confirmation does mean that Amerks goaltender David Leggio and defenseman Drew Scheistel have both cleared waivers and will continue to play in Rochester.
