BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have claimed forward Cory Conacher off waivers from the Ottawa Senators.

The move comes on trade deadline day, with the rebuilding Sabres in a state of flux after trading goaltender Ryan Miller and captain Steve Ott last week.

Conacher returns to Buffalo, where he set school records for goals and points in four years at Canisius College.

He's reunited with Sabres general manager Tim Murray, who was the assistant general manager of the Senators when they acquired Conacher and a fourth-round draft pick from Tampa Bay in exchange for goaltender Ben Bishop in April 2013.

Conacher had four goals and 16 assists in 60 games for the Senators this season and has posted 49 points in 107 NHL games since signing with Tampa Bay in 2012.
