The Buffalo Sabres on Thursday acquired forward Linus Omark from the Edmonton Oilers in a trade for a conditional sixth-round draft pick.

Omark has played one game for Edmonton this season after appearing in 65 from 2010-12. He played last season in Switzerland.

This season, Omark has 29 points (14 goals) in 29 games for Oklahoma City in the American Hockey League. He has eight goals and 22 assists in the NHL.

"It could be a good time for him," Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan said after a 4-2 win against the Boston Bruins. "He’s a very talented young man. Maybe it’s the perfect time."

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
