Sabres assign five to Rochester, release Gillies

By John Vogl

Sabres coach Ron Rolston said this morning he planned to trim the roster after this weekend's games. Buffalo got a jump on the transactions this afternoon.

The Sabres have sent Dan Catenacci, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, Tim Schaller, Phil Varone and Jamie Tardif to Rochester. Tardif will join the Amerks if he clears waivers.

The Sabres have also released forward Colton Gillies from his tryout contract. The former first-round pick by Minnesota showed little in the Sabres' last preseason game.

Buffalo's roster still features 20 forwards, 12 defensemen and three goaltenders. The team must get down to a maximum of 23 players for opening night.
