Omark does not report to Amerks

Linus Omark

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Sabres forward Linus Omark cleared waivers, but did not report to the team’s minor league affiliate in Rochester.

News 4 Sports Director Steve Vesey spoke with Omark’s agent, Kevin Epp, tonight. He says the two sides are “trying to work things out.”

Epps tells News 4 Sports, the main focus is simply trying to understand where Omark fits into the Sabres’ future plans. His no-show in Rochester does not necessarily mean he wants to play back home in Sweden, Epps says.

The Sabres would have to assign him to a Swedish team, if that was the case.

Buffalo waived Omark, just before the Olympic break. The Sabres acquired him from Edmonton in December for a conditional 6th-round draft pick. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
