Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) -- Prior to the Olympic deadline, the Buffalo Sabres placed Linus Omark on waivers with the intention of assigning the Swedish forward to Rochester. However, Omark had other plans.
According to the Buffalo News, Omark has failed to report to the Sabres AHL affiliate. In 13 games with the Sabres, Omark has no goals and just two assists. He has also been a healthy scratch in the Sabres last few games prior to the Olympics.
Omark was acquired from Edmonton for a conditional sixth-round draft pick shortly before the Christmas trade freeze. The 27-year-old spent 29 games with the Oilers' American Hockey League affiliate this season, where he put up 14 goals and 29 points.
