'Should Thorburn clear waivers, he would report to Rochester, Buffalo's American Hockey League affiliate. The Sabres' 2001 second-round pick, Thorburn had one assist in two games for Buffalo in his NHL debut last season. He added one assist in six preseason games last month and is considered the Sabres' final cut in preparation for their regular season-opener at Carolina on Wednesday.'
