The Buffalo Sabres have cut down their roster to 33, releasing 17 players and sending them down to Rochester.
That list includes:
“They’ve been sent with the message don’t hang your head here. There’s going to be opportunity, and it could be coming shortly.” – Dan Bylsma
With these cuts, it’s evident that Derek Grant has beat out Justin Bailey, among others, for a roster spot.
There are three preseason games remaining before the regular season begins on October 13 for Buffalo when they host the Montreal Canadiens.
