Ex-Sabre Tropp puts up candidate for Goal of Year

By John Vogl

Corey Tropp was beginning to earn a reputation as a hard-working, grind-line player in Buffalo before getting waived last month. He showed Sunday he has plenty of skill, too.

Tropp, claimed by Columbus, put up a Goal of the Year candidate for the Blue Jackets by going around a Pittsburgh defenseman and goaltender. Tropp has two goals, three assists and a plus-7 rating in 14 games with Columbus.

Tropp was let go by the Sabres to make room for Matt D'Agostini, who has no goals, one assist and a minus-1 rating in 13 games with Buffalo.
