Sabres send five back to juniors, including Buffalo's Bailey

By John Vogl

The Sabres' training camp numbers are slowly starting to drop.

Buffalo has sent five players back to their junior teams, bringing its roster total down to 56. Justin Bailey, the Williamsville native selected in the second round of the NHL draft, was among those to depart.

Joining Bailey, a Kitchener Rangers forward, were Nicholas Baptiste (Sudbury, OHL), Justin Kea (Saginaw, OHL), Logan Nelson (Victoria, WHL) and defenseman Connor Boland (Peterborough, OHL).

The Sabres also broke their practice sessions into three groups today. Two groups, featuring NHL regulars and hopefuls, were available to the media. The third group practiced early and could easily be considered the Rochester Americans. It consisted of Peter Trainor, Jonathan Parker, Johnny McGuire, Alex Lepkowski, Kevin Sundher, Shawn Szydlowski, Colin Jacobs, Eric Locke, Frederick Roy, Matt MacKenzie, Brady Austin and Nick Crawford.
