The Buffalo Sabres have placed defenseman Justin Falk on waivers.
The intention is that Falk would be able to play in Rochester, but he wouldn’t necessarily have to go down. With Dmitry Kulikov and Zach Bogosian dealing with injuries, Falk would be able to remain with the team even if he clears.
With this move, the Sabres have eight defensemen remaining on their training camp roster including Rasmus Ristolainen, though currently unsigned.
Defenseman Brendan Guhle is junior eligible, but if he starts the season with the Sabres, he’d have a nine game tryout before the team would have to make a decision on where he plays for the remainder of the season.
Teams will meet today and make final decisions on rosters.
