Buffalo native Bailey sent back to junior by Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres cut their roster by five players Monday when it returned five players to their junior hockey teams.

Among those returned to their Canadian Hockey League club was forward Justin Bailey, a Buffalo native selected by the team in the second round (No. 52) of the 2013 NHL Draft. He'll return to the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League for a second season.

Also sent out were forwards Nicholas Baptiste (Sudbury, OHL), Justin Kea (Saginaw, OHL) and Logan Nelson (Victoria, Western Hockey League), along with defenseman Connor Boland (Peterborough, OHL).

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
