Sekera becomes third Sabres player to sign with European team

The Sabres have lost another member of their dwindling workout group.

Defenseman Andrej Sekera today became the third member of the Sabres to sign overseas, agreeing to a deal with Slovan Bratislava of the Kontinental Hockey League, according to agent Allan Walsh.

Sekera joins Christian Ehrhoff (Germany) and Tyler Ennis (Switzerland) as Buffalo regulars who have joined European teams.

Sekera skated in Northtown Center in Amherst on Wednesday, but the group has been halved because the Sabres' prospects are beginning training camp with the Rochester Americans today. Only 10 or so NHL players remain in Buffalo, including Rangers goalie Martin Biron and unrestricted free agent Jochen Hecht.
