The Buffalo Sabres today announced that the team has claimed forward Cory Conacher off waivers after he was waived yesterday by the Ottawa Senators.

Conacher (5’8”, 180 lbs., 12/14/89) has played in parts of three NHL seasons with the Senators and the Tampa Bay Lightning after signing a two-year contract with Tampa Bay in March 2012. Conacher was traded to Ottawa at the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline and has since skated in 72 games for the Senators, recording 25 points (6+19). Through three NHL seasons, Conacher has totaled 49 points (15+34) in 107 games played.

While playing for the Norfolk Admirals, the AHL affiliate of the Lightning, in 2011-12, Conacher was awarded the Les Cunningham Award as the league’s most valuable player and was also the recipient of the AHL’s Dudley “Red” Garrett Memorial Award, given annually to the league’s most outstanding rookie. He was named to the AHL All-Rookie team and helped the Admirals capture the team’s first Calder Cup.

A Burlington, Ontario native, Conacher played four years at Canisius College (AHA) in Buffalo, where he became the Golden Griffins’ career leader in points (147) and goals (62) and was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year in 2009-10.
