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.
