Report: Bogosian requests trade from Sabres


  • Earlier Thursday, it had been reported that Buffalo Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian would be a healthy scratch.
  • With the current roster crunch on the blueline, Ralph Krueger has had his hands full with rotating in-and-out defensemen to not only keep players active but also in an attempt to find the best pairings.
  • It appeared that last night was Bogosian’s night where he pulled the proverbial short straw.
  • Shortly before the game against the Predators, a report broke on Twitter.
  • Just like that, the reason for Bogosian’s healthy scratch changed.
  • About an hour after the news broke, the latest update dropped in TSN’s Insider Trading.
  • TSN reports that Buffalo has been looking to trade a defenseman for a forward, which makes sense seeing the Sabres offensive troubles.

“Buffalo have been trying to move a defenseman for quite some time,” Dreger said on TSN. “You might look at Marco Scandella and Colin Miller’s name out there.”
