Sabres' Scott faces hearing, Kaleta ban upheld

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Eriksson was dazed and didn't return. He stayed in Buffalo overnight as a precaution.

The Bruins, who host San Jose on Thursday night, have not provided an update on Eriksson's status or whether he has returned to Boston.

Scott was apologetic after practice Thursday. He called it "a bad play" and added he didn't mean to aim for Eriksson's head.

"I kind of feel really upset," he said, noting that he texted an apology to Eriksson. "I was sick to my stomach last night knowing what happened. And watching the video, I kind of regret the whole situation."

The Sabres are now down two roster spots with Scott and Kaleta suspended.

The Sabres (1-9-1), off to their worst start in franchise history, made two roster moves Thursday in preparing for a two-game road swing that opens at Florida on Friday.

Fourth-line forward Cody McCormick was activated after missing two games with a leg injury.

The Sabres waived forward Kevin Porter for assignment to the minors, according to a person familiar with the move. The person informed The Associated Press of the decision on the condition of anonymity because coach Ron Rolston declined to say how the team was going to free up a roster spot to add McCormick.
