Sabres elect to keep Adam Mair in Buffalo after he clears waivers

Veteran Sabres forward Adam Mair has cleared waivers and will be staying in Buffalo.

Coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday he's electing to keep Mair in Buffalo as an extra forward rather than send him to Portland, Maine, the Sabres' American Hockey League affiliate. NHL teams had until noon Tuesday to claim Mair.

A nine-year NHL veteran, Mair has proven to be the odd-man out on a team stocked with forwards.

Mair missed the start of the season after having hip surgery. He's appeared in only three games and registered no points this season.

The Sabres (9-4-1), on their first two-game losing streak of the season, host Edmonton on Wednesday.
