The Sabres trimmed training camp down to two groups Friday afternoon and started to set up a core of players for the Rochester Americans.
Sent down to the AHL club were forwards Colin Jacobs, Eric Locke, Johnny McGuire, Jonathan Parker, Frederick Roy, Kevin Sundher and Shawn Szydlowski; defensemen Alex Lepkowski and Matt MacKenzie; and goalies Connor Knapp and Nathan Lieuwen. Defenseman Nick Crawford was also sent down, but must first clear waivers.
Defenseman Brady Austin was returned to Belleville of the OHL and forward Peter Trainor was sent back to Rimouski in the Quebec League.
The Sabres are now down to 41 players (25 forwards, 13 defensemen and 3 goalies). Practice in Rochester will start Monday at 10 a.m. in Blue Cross Arena and is open to the public.
