Sabres place Zach Bogosian on waivers to terminate contract

BUFFALO – Defenseman Zach Bogosian’s five-year career with the Sabres is over.

The Sabres placed Bogosian on unconditional waivers today with the intention of terminating his contract.

Bogosian refused to report to the Rochester Americans after the Sabres assigned him to their AHL affiliate on Saturday, a day after waiving him.

The Massena native must sign with a new team before Monday’s trade deadline to be eligible for the NHL playoffs.

The contract termination will cost Bogosian the final portion of his $6 million salary.
