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

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
