Calgary Flames Deal Robyn Regehr To Buffalo Sabres

Robyn Regehr was looking to explore his options when it came to waiving his no-movement clause for a deal with the Buffalo Sabres. One of his few options closed on Friday night as the San Jose Sharks made a play for Brent Burns of the Minnesota Wild so Regehr officially waived his NMC late Friday night. 

The deal was announced before the 2nd round of the draft started, with the Calgary Flames sending Regehr, forward Ales Kotalik, and a 2012 2nd round pick to the Buffalo Sabres for the rights for defenseman Chris Butler, and Paul Byron. Kotalik has some experience with the Sabres organization as played for Buffalo for six and a half seasons before he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in 2009. 

Chris Butler is a solid young defenseman who has been caught in a numbers game on the Sabres blueline. Butler has played in 155 games over three seasons for Buffalo with five goals and 36 points in that timeframe. Paul Byron is a offensive prospect that has eight NHL games in his career.

Flames Ask Robyn Regehr To Consent To Sabres Trade, According To Report

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, Robyn Regehr has been asked by the Calgary Flames to waive his no-movement clause in an apparent deal to the Buffalo Sabres. Regehr has been in the NHL for 11 seasons, all with the Flames and has played in 826 games with 163 points. 

The deal is not official as of yet and neither the Flames nor the Sabres will comment. According to John Vogl of the Buffalo News, Regehr has been calling former teammates to inquire about Buffalo but it isn't known whether he will officially waive his no trade clause. Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald obtained the lone quote at the moment from Regehr:

 "Can't really say much," Regehr said Thursday afternoon. "Just looking at my options right now."
