Sabres assign Gilmour to Rochester

Defenseman John Gilmour cleared waivers and has been assigned to Rochester, the Sabres announced Saturday.

Gilmour was named to the AHL’s First All-Star Team last season after finishing among the league’s top 10 defenseman in goals (2nd, 20), assists (8th, 34), points (2nd, 54), and game-winning goals (2nd, 5). He has recorded 105 points (32+73) in 190 career AHL contests.

The defenseman has appeared in four games with the Sabres this season, recording five shots and averaging 17:03 of ice time.

The Amerks play tonight in Binghamton and then host the Toronto Marlies next Friday.
