Sabres suspend Zach Bogosian for failure to report to Rochester

Zach Bogosian’s status in the Buffalo Sabres’ organization got a whole lot messier Monday afternoon.

The veteran defenseman has been suspended by the team after refusing to report to the Rochester Amerks. Bogosian, who has not played a minor-league game since 2009, was assigned to Rochester on Saturday after clearing waivers.

The Sabres announced the suspension in a terse two-sentence tweet and the club said: “There will be no further information or comment at this time.”

Said Bogosian’s agent, Darren Ferris, in a text message to The Buffalo News: “We are aware of the notice of suspension and will not be providing a comment at this time.”
