Justin Bailey, Cole Schneider and Evan Rodrigues are expected to contribute in Buffalo this season. It just won't be at the start of the year.
The trio was part of a roster purge Saturday morning as the Sabres sent 17 players to Rochester. The Amerks began their training camp in HarborCenter.
Forwards - Bailey, William Carrier, Daniel Catenacci (pending waivers), Eric Cornel, Jean Dupuy, Vaclav Karabacek, Justin Kea, Matthew Lane, Daniel Muzito-Bagenda, Rodrigues and Schneider (pending waivers).
Defense - Brady Austin, Mac Bennett, Paul Geiger and Brycen Martin.
Goalies - Jason Kasdorf and John Muse.
The Sabres still have 33 players (18 forwards, 12 defensemen and three goaltenders) on their training camp roster.
