Linus Omark has only been a member of the Buffalo Sabres for a little over a month, but it seems that his time with the club may be coming to an end as the team placed the Swedish forward on waivers Friday morning.
In 13 games with the Sabres, Omark scored zero goals and had just two assists. He didn’t play last night in the team’s game in Ottawa, and has been a healthy scratch a handful of games since coming to the Queen City. If he isn’t claimed in 24 hours, then Omark will in all likelihood be sent down to Buffalo’s AHL affiliate in Rochester.
You have to imagine that that is what will happen as it’s hard to believe another NHL team will give him a chance right now on a main roster if he couldn’t produce with the NHL’s worst team. It’s even more surprising when you realize that he was put on the top line in Buffalo for a few of those games.
The Sabres played their last game before the NHL’s Olympic break last night against the Ottawa Senators. They don’t play next until Tuesday, February 25 against the Carolina Hurricanes. It may be safe to assume that Omark won’t be a part of that lineup.
