The Buffalo Sabres have announced they will hold a press conference on Wednesday June 29th to announce their affiliation with the Rochester Amerks, a team the Sabres purchased recently.
Sabres’ GM Darcy Regier once again stated he is talking to Tim Connolly’s agent. Regier also said he’s going to talk to Cody McCormick’s agent.
The Sabres have qualified all their restricted free agents with the exception of Felix Schutz who will remain in Germany. Nate Gerbe, Marc-Andre Gragnani, Andrej Sekera and Mike Weber have arbitration rights. Players have until July 5th to declare player elected arbitration.
The Sabres will open negotiations with Tyler Myers about a contract extension next month.
Regier said yesterday the Sabres will talk to Mike Grier about his future with the team after the initial wave of free agent signings is complete.
