What’s going on? His agent, Kevin Epp, told the Buffalo News all options – Buffalo, Rochester and Europe – are still on the table for the vacationing Swede.
Realistically, though, Omark is likely finished with the Sabres organization.
Now, a report from NDS, a Swedish newspaper, is linking Omark to Lulea, a Swedish Elite League team he played four seasons with before coming to North America in 2010.
The 27-year-old would need the Sabres’ blessing to go overseas. Clearly, he’s out of their plans.
The Sabres sent a conditional sixth-round draft pick to Edmonton for Omark on Dec. 19. Despite a flashy skill set, Omark compiled just two assists in 13 games and was a regular healthy scratch before getting let go last week.
