Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres have sent Tage Thompson down to Rochester. Thompson was going to join the Amerks for the playoffs, but I have to believe the last straw may have been when he was one of the forwards that stopped skating back on Ottawa’s 4-on-2 goal on Tuesday night.

Thompson has struggled for most of the season, scoring seven goals and five assists for 12 points in 65 games.

Thompson had no goals and one assist in his last 23 games.

Victor Olofsson was called up on Wednesday to take his place.
