Sabres roster: Brett Murray waived, two prospects sent to Amerks

The Sabres on Wednesday trimmed their roster, waiving winger Brett Murray for the purpose of sending him to the Rochester Americans and assigning forwards Jiri Kulich and Isak Rosen to the AHL club.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Murray, 25, could attract interest on the waiver wire, having scored a career-high 23 goals in 71 games for the Amerks last season. His former agent, Jeff Jackson, recently took over as the Edmonton Oilers’ CEO of hockey operations.

Update: Murray has cleared, according to reports.

Meanwhile, Kulich and Rosen, two of Buffalo’s top forwards prospects, will both be beginning their second seasons in Rochester.

Kulich, 19, enjoyed one of the greatest seasons ever by a teenager as a rookie with the Amerks last year, scoring 24 goals and 46 points in 62 games. The Czech became just the fourth player in AHL history to score more than 20 goals in his 18-year-old season and the first since Syracuse’s Robert Dome in 1997-98.

Rosen, 20, also stood out, registering 14 goals and 37 points in 66 games.

The Sabres have 30 players – 17 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goalies – left on their training camp roster.
