Sabres Captain Rivet Claimed By Columbus
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.”
