Buffalo - October 1, 2014 - With a week to go until the 2014-15 season kicks off, it’s that time around the NHL: camp cuts.

On Tuesday, after already sending 11 down, the Sabres trimmed their roster by seven more. Joel Armia, Drew Bagnall, Matt Ellis, Nick Petrecki and Tim Schaller were all sent down to the Rochester Americans of the AHL along with goaltenders Nathan Lieuwen and Andrey Makarov.

All seven are familiar with Rochester, having spent time with the Amerks last season. Bagnall was the team’s captain for part of the season while Makarov and Lieuwen bounced between Rochester and Buffalo to end last season.

These cuts could impact players already in the Rochester training camp. Brady Austin, William Carrier, Dan Catenacci, Colin Jacobs, Justin Kea, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, Chad Ruhwedel, Jordan Samuels-Thomas, Kevin Sundher, Luke Adam and Phil Varone were all cut by the Sabres last week and some of them could be cut from Amerks camp to make space for a few of the players recently cut by the Sabres.

As of Tuesday’s cuts, the Sabres are still carrying 31 players: 18 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goalies, including the injured Matt Hackett. That number will obviously have to come down quite a bit before next week, so expect a few surprising cuts along the way as the competition for roster spots in Buffalo is sure to be a fierce one.
