BUFFALO – The Sabres waived three players today, most notably defenseman Adam Pardy, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.
The team also placed Rochester forwards Kevin Porter and Nick Tarnasky on waivers, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle’s Kevin Oklobjiza reported.
Pardy, a possible addition to Rochester despite his $2 million salary, leaves the Sabres with eight defensemen, a number they could carry on their regular-season roster.
The 28-year-old Pardy spoke Sunday about the excitement he experienced coming to the Sabres from Dallas in July.
We’ll know more about the Sabres’ final roster Friday afternoon. Stay tuned.
