The Buffalo Sabres on Friday claimed center Zenon Konopka off waivers from the Minnesota Wild.

Regarded as one of the NHL's better faceoff men, Konopka has won 65.7 percent of his faceoffs, most in the League for players to have taken at least 200 faceoffs. He also has one goal, two points and 55 penalty minutes in 36 games.

A veteran of nine NHL seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Tampa Bay Lightning, New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators and Wild, the 33-year-old native of Niagara On the Lake, Ontario, has 12 goals, 29 points and 1,049 penalty minutes in 323 games.
