Sabres place Kyle Okposo on IR; demote Pilut to AHL

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres have placed forward Kyle Okposo on injured reserve and demoted defenseman Lawrence Pilut to the minors.

Okposo is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with his third concussion in less than three years. The 30-year-old was felled by a punch to the face during a fight with defenseman Tony DeAngelo in a 6-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Feb. 15.

Pilut became the odd man out on defense as he was sent down to AHL Rochester in moves made Friday, a day before Buffalo hosts Washington.
