Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) -- The Buffalo Sabres have waived forward Cody McCormick. He left the ice during Wednesday's practice at the First Niagara Center. The move may have been made to clear room on the roster to call up a player from Rochester. Lindy Ruff said, “Part of it is with John there, we’re crowded at that position and with Pat Kaleta on the right side, I tried to give him a look at center. We’ve just got too much of the same thing.”
TSN.ca in Canada reports that the Sabres tried to trade McCormick before making this move.
