It's been awhile since we've seen Craig Rivet on the ice and it'll be awhile before we see him play at HSBC Arena again.  He was claimed today off of re-entry waivers by The Columbus Blue Jackets.

Rivet was still very well respected in the locker room despite being a healthy scratch for the last 18 games.

"Craig's a guy I've really looked up to from Day One when I came into this room," Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers said. "As a young guy my first year in the league, he really helped me out and made it comfortable for me. I'll admit I was a little homesick last year, and it was tough coming in after playing with 16-, 17-, 18-year-olds. He was a key part of why I felt so good in this room last year."
