Pittsburgh, PA (WGR 550) - The Sabres made some more roster cuts on Wednesday. Heading to Rochester are C.J. Smith, Andrew Oglevie, Kyle Criscuolo, Jonas Johansson and Danny O’Regan.

I thought Smith was excellent during the Prospects Challenge and training camp, as was Oglevie, but at this point, it’s a numbers game.

I think both will get a call up during the season when injuries hit. At this point, there was no room for Smith since Conor Sheary is close to returning and Alex Nylander, Tage Thompson and Justin Bailey have shown well too.

Evan Rodrigues and Nick Baptiste are also in the fight for the final roster spots.
