Sabres coach Ruff hints more changes could be coming after Buffalo waives F McCormick

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have placed fourth-line forward Cody McCormick on waivers, and coach Lindy Ruff hints more changes could be coming to shake up his slow-starting team.

McCormick became the odd-man out Wednesday because Ruff said the team has enough toughness already. He added a decision hasn't been made on how the Sabres will fill the roster spot before their game at Toronto on Thursday.

Ruff then cut short his availability with reporters after suggesting more changes could be on the horizon because "it isn't working the way we're going." He didn't specify what those changes might be.

The Sabres (6-10-1) are in the midst of a 4-10-1 slump following a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday.

McCormick, an eight-year NHL veteran, had no points in eight games this season.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
