News: Armia was one of seven players cut by the Sabres on Tuesday. Impact: Armia was a long-shot to make the team and his demotion the AHL is no surprise. The talented Finnish sniper had a frustrating rookie season last year, scoring just seven goals in 53 games for the Amerks last year. He needs to work on his core strength before he can compete in the NHL. Armia will likely stay in Rochester for the whole season as he continues to get acclimated to North America. He is expected to be one of the Amerks' top offensive forwards.(RotoWire, )

News: Head coach Ted Nolan says Armia will play Sunday, reports the Olean Times Herald. Impact: The Sabres played veteran-laden teams in their past two exhibition games and will play youngsters Sunday in a re-match against the Leafs. The talented Finnish sniper is not expected to make the team but should be able to showcase some of his game-breaking talent nonetheless. He's a guy to keep an eye on in keeper leagues.(RotoWire, )
