Sabres claim F D'Agostini a day after being waived by Penguins; waive RW Tropp

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have claimed forward Matt D'Agostini a day after he was waived by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

D'Agostini is on his fourth NHL team since 2010. He had an assist and four penalty minutes in eight games with Pittsburgh after signing a one-year deal with the Penguins in July.

He was selected in the sixth round of the 2005 draft by Montreal, and spent two seasons with the Canadiens. D'Agostini has also played with the St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils.

The Sabres acquired D'Agostini on a day they're set to host the Canadiens. Buffalo (5-19-1) has lost four straight and has the NHL's worst record.

Quote of the Day

We have to develop into a good team. We have to develop the pieces now that are a little more evident and in place to become a good team. It's not there yet.
