Although he is on the ice practicing with the team this afternoon, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the Buffalo Sabres have placed forward Cody McCormick on waivers today. McCormick hasn’t record a point in eight games for Buffalo this season and has 10 minutes in penalties.
Also according to multiple reports earlier, Tyler Ennis and Christian Ehrhoff aren’t practicing with the team today following last night’s abysmal 2-1 home loss to Winnipeg. WKBW’s Shawn Stepner tweeted that Ennis is on the bench in shorts and a sweatshirt.
Mikhail Grigorenko is skating between Drew Stafford and Marcus Foligno in Ennis’ absence.
Check back a little later with any updates from Lindy Ruff or Darcy Regier following today’s practice. There’s several Sabres reporters on the scene and we’ll post any news or interesting quotes we hear from them.
**UPDATE** McCormick left the ice at practice shortly after reports began trickling out. Also, Lindy Ruff said Ennis and Ehrhoff missing practice were just “maintenance” days.
