Sabres place Tennyson on waivers

November 30, 2017

With some healthy defensemen ready to return to the lineup, the Buffalo Sabres have placed Matt Tennyson on waivers. If he clears waivers, he will be eligible to be sent down to the Rochester Americans.

The 27-year old defenseman started the season with the Sabres and appeared in 14 games before suffering a lower-body injury. In those games, Tennyson was held pointless with a minus-8 rating and 24 shots on goal.

Tennyson would have been the ninth defenseman on the roster with Zach Bogosian nearing a return from a lower-body injury, and with Josh Gorges and Justin Falk as the likely extras.

The Sabres will know if Tennyson clears waivers by 12 p.m. on Friday. The Amerks are home to face the Hartford Wolf Pack on Friday night at KeyBank Center.
