SABRES ACQUIRE OMARK FROM OILERS
false

During Thursday's 4-2 win over Boston, the Sabres announced they had acquired forward Linus Omark from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Following the game, interim coach Ted Nolan said that Omark may be able to make an immediate impact on the Buffalo roster.

"With the injuries that are occurring, losing (Cody) McCormick and we don’t know about (the injury to Cody) Hodgson yet. It could be a good time for him. He’s a very talented young man so maybe it’s perfect timing."

Omark (2/5/87, 5'10", 187 lbs) joins the Sabres after spending the last three seasons in the Oilers organization, where he has played in 66 NHL games, tallying 30 points (8+22). In 2013-14, he has played in 29 games for Edmonton’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, and leads the team in scoring with 29 points (14+15). In addition to leading the Barons in scoring, he is currently tied for fourth-most points in the AHL.

Drafted by the Oilers in the fourth round (97th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Omark signed a one-year contract with the club in August 2013.
