BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres announced on Friday that they placed defenseman Zach Bogosian on waivers.

On Saturday, the team announced that he was assigned to Rochester, where he would play with the Americans.

Injuries have been an issue for Bogosian during his career, especially with the Sabres. He has played in only a handful of games this season. Bogosian will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

In December, TSN's Darren Dreger, reported Bogosian requested that the Sabres trade him.
