The roller coaster life of Buffalo Sabres forward Linus Omark rolls on.

John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports Omark hasn’t reported to AHL Rochester after being assigned there after clearing waivers last week. Omark’s agent, Kevin Epp, tells Vogl he wants to find the best thing for his client.

“I’m not really sure what the exact next steps are,” Epp said, “just trying to figure out where he can go, where they can reassign him, where they want to have him, where he’s going to be best-suited for them and their situation.”

To say things have gone poorly for Omark since signing with the Oilers over the summer seemingly out of the blue would be highly accurate. If AHL life isn’t for him, perhaps a return to Switzerland where he was one of the Swiss National League’s top scorers last season would be in order.

Omark was acquired by the Sabres in December from Edmonton for a conditional draft pick. In 13 games with Buffalo, he had no goals and two assists and was a healthy scratch on occasion as well.

    This looks like one of those cut your loses and go home situations.

    Maybe if you didn’t suck so hard you wouldn’t have this problem.

      Man even on PHT Thomas Vanek is a dbag

        I know you called me a dbag, but I couldn’t help but laugh at that one. Good for you.

        I honestly lost a lot of respect (or what was left atleast) after his comments about his goalie today.

    This kid had better stay in Europe. He doesn’t belong in the NHL.

    Obviously its going to be tough progressing on a team like the Oilers or Sabres. But he hasn’t shown any promise whatsoever, except in shootout YouTube videos
