Mair practicing with Sabres

The Sabres have just begun a rare afternoon practice -- likely scheduled because of a late night with Ryan Miller's Catwalk for Charity -- and Adam Mair is on the ice in HSBC Arena.

TSN's Bob McKenzie posted on his Twitter account that the Sabres have placed Mair on waivers. The 30-year-old forward has played just three games this season after playing 72 or more each of the past three seasons.

Mair is again working out as a spare forward on the fourth line, spelling either Paul Gaustad, Patrick Kaleta or Matt Ellis. More on Mair after we speak with coach Lindy Ruff.

Ruff has swapped centers on his top two lines for practice today. Tim Connolly is in the middle of left wing Thomas Vanek and right wing Drew Stafford. Derek Roy is being flanked by Clarke MacArthur and Jason Pominville.
