News: Detroit waived Porter on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Impact: Porter has split time between the AHL and NHL the past two season with Buffalo and AHL Rochester. Last season he played in 12 games for the Sabres where he managed only one assist. If another team does not claim him, Porter will report to AHL Grand Rapids. Porter will have a low fantasy impact this year, even if he does get called up to the NHL at some point.
