The Buffalo Sabres claimed forward Cory Conacher off waivers Wednesday.

Conacher had four goals and 16 assists in 60 games this season for the Ottawa Senators, who acquired him last year in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning for goalie Ben Bishop.

“To be able to play there in the NHL, it’s a dream come true," Conacher said. "At the same time, it's tough leaving Ottawa. They’re a great organization. They've done so much for me. They have a lot of good people that have helped me out and just the guys on the team are special guys. I was really close with a lot of them. They're a team that’s going to be really good in the future, you can tell."

WINNIPEG – Winnipeg Jets second-line center Mark Scheifele has an MCL sprain in his right knee, coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday, and his status will be updated in a few weeks.

TSN reported Scheifele would miss six-to-eight weeks after sustaining the injury in a loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday in Winnipeg. He was injured 11:18 into the second period after a collision with Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan, left the game and did not return.

The Jets medical staff evaluated Scheifele on Wednesday morning.

"It's all in how [quickly] this thing heals. You can check back with me in two or three weeks, and I'll give you a general idea of where we think it's at," Jets coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday at the team's practice rink. "There is a wide spectrum of [timelines] in terms of when [players] come back from these injuries, but it's never in three or four weeks, so you don't need to check back too soon."
