Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres have their 23-man roster and are under the NHL Salary Cap figure of $79.5 million.

Buffalo has eight defensemen in Rasmus Ristolainen, Rasmus Dahlin, Marco Scandella, Jake McCabe, Casey Nelson, Nate Beaulieu, Zach Bogosian and Matt Tennyson. Matt Hunwick is on injured reserve. Phil Housley likes to have eight defensemen on the roster for practice purposes.  

At center, the Sabres are going with Jack Eichel, Patrik Berglund, Casey Mittelstadt and Johan Larsson. Evan Rodrigues has also been working at center. Larsson will start the year on IR.

Over on the left wing is Jeff Skinner, Conor Sheary, Vladimir Sobotka, Zemgus Girgensons and Remi Elie. Scott Wilson is on IR.

The right wingers are Sam Reinhart, Tage Thompson, Kyle Okposo and Jason Pominville.

Your goalies are Carter Hutton and Linus Ullmark.

By my calculations, the Sabres are $617,976 under the cap.
