Defenseman John Gilmour has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Rochester Americans, the Buffalo Sabres announced this afternoon.
Gilmour, 26, compiled zero points in four games with the Sabres. Following an impressive training camp, they scratched him 18 times, including the first 11 contests.
The Montreal native made his last appearance as a winger in Tuesday’s 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild.
Defenseman Zach Bogosian’s return from a hip injury made Gilmour expendable.
Gilmour scored 20 goals and 54 points in 70 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack last season.
The Amerks play a road game against the Binghamton Devils tonight.
