Following Saturday's workouts, Buffalo assigned 10 players to the Rochester Americans. Headed to the minors are forwards Kevin Porter, Stevie Moses, Eric Cornel and Vaclav Karabacek; defensemen Casey Nelson, Brycen Martin and Devante Stephens; and goaltenders Jason Kasdorf, Jonas Johansson and Adam Wilcox.
