Neither Alex Nylander or Brendan Guhle will be in the Buffalo Sabres opening night lineup. On Monday the team announced both Nylander, Guhle and defenseman Brandon Hickey have been sent to Rochester [AHL] as the Sabres finalize their roster.
Nylander, a 2016 first round pick, had his strongest training camp as a Sabre, but just missed making the roster.
Guhle, who played 18 games with the Sabres last season, will also return to Rochester, where he tallied 26 points in 50 games last season.
The Sabres also announced that forward Scott Wilson underwent ankle surgery and will miss eight to ten weeks.
Buffalo opens the regular season against the Boston Bruins on Thursday.
