BUFFALO – Winger Linus Omark cleared waivers today, according to CBC’s Elliotte Friedman.
It’s unclear if the 27-year-old, who had zero goals and two assists in 13 games with the Sabres, will be assigned to Rochester.
Update: Omark will join the Americans after the AHL All-Star break.

The speedy Swede has played most of his career in Europe. He returned to North American this season after spending 2012-13 in Switzerland.
