Sabres' Sean Malone: On waivers
Malone was waived by Buffalo on Tuesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Sabres' Sean Malone: Links up with Buffalo
Malone signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sabres on Wednesday.
Malone got into one game for the Predators last season, registering an assist and two PIM. He added 15 points in 23 contests with AHL Chicago. Considering he is on a two-way contract, the 26-year-old shouldn't be expected to compete for more than a bottom-six job with the Sabres in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Headed to AHL
Malone was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Friday.
Malone has only appeared in one game for Nashville all season, though he did manage to pick up an assist in 10:38 of ice time. He'll remain among the team's top call-up candidates should injuries strike.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Shifts to taxi squad

Malone was promoted from the taxi squad to the active roster Monday.
Malone has played just one game this season, but he managed to record his first NHL point -- an assist -- in that contest. The 25-year-old is eligible to play in Tuesday's road matchup against the Red Wings.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Shuffled back to taxi squad

Malone logged his first game of the 2021 season in Tuesday's loss to Tampa Bay, recording an assist and a shot across 10:38 of ice time. The 25-year-old will be a candidate to re-join the active roster for Thursday's matchup against Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Receives promotion
Malone was activated from the taxi squad Tuesday.
Malone hasn't played an NHL game since the 2016-17 season when he signed with the Sabres following his final season at Harvard. He could make his Predators debut Tuesday. The 25-year-old recorded 30 points over 58 games with AHL Rochester last season. He'll likely slot into a botom-six role if he, indeed, cracks the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Joins taxi squad
Malone has been promoted to Nashville's taxi squad.
Luke Kunin (lower body) and Ryan Johansen (upper body) are both dealing with injuries, so Malone will be on hand as an emergency option. The 25-year-old forward picked up 30 points in 58 games with AHL Rochester last season.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Sean Malone: Waived by Preds
Malone was waived by the Predators on Saturday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Malone has yet to play a game at the NHL level, giving him very limited fantasy appeal at this time. However, the 25-year-old center did record 12 goals and 30 points at AHL Rochester last season, so it may be just a matter of time until he sees some game action with the big club.... See More ...

Predators' Sean Malone: Secures two-way deal
Malone signed a one-year, two-way contract with Nashville on Wednesday.
Malone spent the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Rochester on a minor-league deal. Racking up 30 points in 58 contests obviously convinced the Predators to give the center a deal that gives him a chance at playing in his first NHL game since 2016-17 with the Sabres.... See More ... See Less
Sean Malone: Won't receive qualifying offer
Malone was not given a qualifying offer by the Sabres on Tuesday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.
Malone is technically still eligible to sign with any NHL club, but the center already agreed to terms on a one-year deal with AHL Rochester, which will at least keep him on the radar for team brass. If he can put together a solid campaign, the 23-year-old could earn himself an NHL deal from Buffalo next summer.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Sent back to AHL
Malone (knee) was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Tuesday, Ian Ott of the Sabres' official site reports.
Malone sustained a knee injury in the preseason, so he'll try to make up for lost time. The Buffalo native recorded 12 goals and 10 assists over 73 games with the Amerks last season, but he's presumably looking at a lengthy stay in the AHL unless injuries threaten the team up front. After all, the Sabres have had a hard time finding playing time for Remi Elie and Tage Thompson, let alone Malone, who's only appeared in one game at the top level in his career.... See More ...

Sabres' Sean Malone: Injured in Monday's preseason game
Malone left Monday's preseason game against the Blue Jackets in the second period with what appeared to be a left knee injury and did not return, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Malone is a long shot to make the opening night roster, and anything more than a minor injury will certainly put that dream to rest for the Harvard product, at least to start the season.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Out six weeks
Malone (knee) will be sidelined for six weeks, per the Sabres' injury report.
Malone was a long-shot to make the 23-man roster, but his preseason injury all but guarantees the center will be shipped to AHL Rochester once given the all-clear. When roster limits fall into place, the New York native will no doubt be placed on injured reserve until he is healthy enough to be demoted.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Earns one-year, two-way deal
Malone signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sabres worth $787,500 in the NHL on Thursday.
A Buffalo native, Malone registered 12 goals, 10 assists and 29 PIM through 73 games with AHL Rochester last season. The Harvard product is a two-time NCAA (ECAC) champion who will get a longer look in the Sabres system now that he's signed his first standard NHL contract.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Gets qualifying offer
Malone was tendered a qualifying offer from the Sabres on Monday.
The Sabres front office indicated back in April that they believe Malone could carve out a role with the big club eventually if he continues to progress. As a result, it's not a huge surprise the organization gave him a qualifying offer Monday. While Malone still has a way to go before becoming a potential fantasy asset, his play in the AHL provides some hope for a roster spot down the line.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Continues to progress
The Sabres front office believes Malone can carve out a role with the big club at his current rate of progression, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Drafted 159th overall in 2013, Malone spent four years at Harvard before turning pro, scoring 42 points in 36 games in his senior year. He's a versatile, two-way center who's scored 11 goals and 20 points in 68 games with AHL Rochester in his first pro season, and the maturity in his game has clearly caught the Sabres' attention. Malone needs more seasoning in the minors and will be a long-shot to make the roster next season, but he can be a very valuable call-up option.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Looking for first pro point
Malone, who is progressing nicely from a hip injury, is looking for his first point with AHL Rochester after turning pro this past summer, The Buffalo News reports.
Malone played one game for the Sabres upon leaving Harvard University after four years, but aggravated a hip injury in training camp and was assigned to the AHL to begin the season. Through five games, Malone is minus-3 and has yet to register a point, but head coach Chris Taylor has been happy with Malone's progress on the fourth line. A two-way forward who can play either wing or center, Malone projects to be a bottom-six forward who will need to stay healthy if he wants to make a run for a roster spot with the Sabres next season....

Sabres' Sean Malone: Shipped off to minors
Malone (hip) was sent down to AHL Rochester on Tuesday.
Malone's hip ailment prevented him from showing team brass what he was capable of during training camp. Instead, the center was cleared just in time to get reassigned to the minors. It will be the 22-year-old's first taste of AHL hockey after signing with Buffalo following the conclusion of his senior season with Harvard University.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Sean Malone: Misses opening day workout
Malone, who sat out the Prospects Challenge with a hip injury, missed the first day of training camp Friday as well, The Buffalo News reports.
The good news is that the injury isn't believed to be serious, but the bad news is that Malone's already fallen behind the competition. He appeared in one game with the Sabres last year after finishing up his NCAA career, and although he isn't expected to make the team this year, he will lose some valuable time to develop. It's likely Malone will begin the season with AHL Rochester in a top-nine role. There is no timetable for Malone's return, and he's considered week-to-week until further notice.... See More ...
