Sabres claim F D'Agostini off waivers
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)
D'Agostini is on his fourth NHL team since 2010. He had an assist and four penalty minutes in eight games with Pittsburgh after signing a one-year deal with the Penguins in July.
The Sabres acquired D'Agostini on a day they're set to host the Canadiens. Buffalo (5-19-1) has lost four straight and has the NHL's worst record.
To make room on their roster, the Sabres placed right wing Corey Tropp on waivers for assignment to AHL Rochester. Tropp had an assist in nine games with Buffalo.
