Sabres release Omark

  • Tyler Race

download (10)Picking up Linus Omark from the Edmonton Oilers has not quite panned out as well as the Buffalo Sabres would have hoped. The Sabres gave up a sixth-round draft pick for Omark back in December. After being placed on unconditional waivers Monday, The Sabres  made the decision to cut ties with the 27-year-old left winger just a day after not being claimed.

The Sabres’ intention was to send Omark to AHL affiliate Rochester, where he would have the opportunity to develop during the Olympic break.

In his 13 games with the Sabres, Omark managed just two assists and no goals. Omark was also unable to see much success in the NHL with the Oilers, either, with just eight goals and 22 assists. In his 79 games in the NHL, Omark has a total 8 goals and 24 assists.

The 2007 fourth-round draft pick is reportedly looking to pursue his hockey career in Europe, according to the players’ agent Kevin Epp in an email to the Associated Press.

The 15-34-8 Sabres return to action Tuesday, February 25, when they host the 26-22-9 Carolina Hurricanes.
