  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Up from AHL

    Dea was recalled from AHL Rochester to the taxi squad Thursday.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Sent to AHL

    Dea was demoted to AHL Rochester on Monday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Officially sent down

    Dea was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Wednesday after clearing waivers.

    Dea played in just three games for the Sabres last season in which he registered zero shots and three hits while logging 7:38 of ice time per game. Injuries could open up an opportunity for Dea to get back onto the NHL roster at some point but he figures to spend the bulk of the year playing in the minors.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Designated for waivers

    Dea was placed on waivers by the Sabres on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Considering Dea saw action in a mere three games for Buffalo last season, his placement on waivers shouldn't come as a surprise. In the minors, the 26-year-old center generated 15 goals and 24 helpers in 57 appearances. With the addition of taxi squads, Dea may find himself stuck between an NHL and AHL roster spot this year, assuming he clears waivers.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Sent to bus league

    Buffalo assigned Dea to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

    The Sabres promoted Scott Wilson in a corresponding move, so Dea is likely in for an extended stay with Rochester. The 25-year-old forward went scoreless while averaging just 8:30 of ice time per contest during his two-game stint with the big club.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Back with big club

    The Sabres recalled Dea from AHL Rochester on Friday.

    Kyle Okposo (upper body) isn't expected to be available for Saturday's clash with Columbus, so Dea will round out Buffalo's depth up front against the Blue Jackets. The 25-year-old has been pretty productive with Rochester this season, notching 13 goals and 30 points in 41 games.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Returned to minor-league affiliate

    Buffalo assigned Dea to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.

    Dea has been a healthy scratch for five of the Sabres' last six contests, and he only logged 5:53 of ice time in his single appearance, so this move makes sense. The 25-year-old forward will return to a prominent role with Rochester, where he's racked up seven goals and 13 points in 18 games this campaign.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Recalled from minors

    Dea was promoted from AHL Rochester on Monday.

    Unless the Sabres want to continue rolling with seven defensemen in the lineup, Dea figures to suit up versus the Lightning on Monday after Evan Rodrigues (undisclosed) was injured in Sunday's clash with the Panthers. In 18 games for the Americans, the 25-year-old Dea notched seven goals and six helpers and should be in contention to stick around if he can carry his scoring touch over.

  • Sabres' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Drops to waivers

    Dea (lower body) was waived by the Sabres for purpose of reassignment Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Dea didn't practice Monday morning, and the Sabres will hope to pass him through waivers to AHL Rochester. The 25-year-old pivot may be recalled at some point this regular season if the big club runs into injuries, but his fantasy upside is minimal with just seven points in 29 NHL games.
