The Buffalo Sabres caught Corey Tropp’s eye during the 2007 playoffs. Little did he know, he was in their sights, too.
“I remember in ’07, my actual draft year, watching the Sabres and how cool it looked in Buffalo,” Tropp said to The News by phone Thursday. “Then, a month later, I was getting drafted by them.”
It turns out Columbus General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen...
First off, I'd like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of those who celebrate it.
The Sabres lost a great, young forward today after Corey Tropp was claimed off of waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets. He hasn't played much over the past couple of years and when he has, there hasn't been many points.
Buffalo was trying to get him down to Rochester, where he would...
The Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed Corey Tropp off of waivers. Tropp was originally drafted in the 3rd round (89th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, but wouldn’t see action with the team until 2011. In a pre-season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on September 22, 2013, Tropp was apart of the infamous line brawl and was knocked out by Maple Leafs’ forward Jamie [...]
Corey Tropp has been waived by the Sabres. In order for him to play for the Amerks, he'll have to clear waivers. Tropp has been playing on the 4th line for the most part this season, and has registered just one assist and is a -8.
Tropp hasn't been playing well, but there are other on the team who could have been waived instead. I'd rather see Tropp playing in Rochester...
Corey Tropp is a long way away from playing in a game but the Buffalo Sabres’ forward moved a step closer toward returning to the lineup Monday when he practiced with the team for the first time since suffering a broken jaw last month.
Tropp wore a non-contact red jersey during the hour-long workout at First Niagara Center and spoke to reporters afterward for the first time since...
Not much going on with the Sabres. They keep losing and don't look to be improving. What else do you want me to tell you?
Corey Tropp, Cody McCormick and Ville Leino all practiced today. Ristolainen is back with the team...even though he never really left.
Below is a list of some changes that I think we will see over the next decade.
5 things we will see in the NHL...
The injury bug has bitten the Sabres early this year, but hopefully it will at least slow down. A few Sabres prospects are going to miss time and the season hasn't even started yet. As you know by now, Nikita Zadorov, who just signed an entry level contract, will miss at least two weeks with a hand injury.
Joel Armia will miss approximately a month and of course, Corey Tropp...
Unwritten rules in sports are becoming a problem.
Don’t watch your home run. Don’t go after the star player. Don’t do this, don’t do that.
This past weekend, there was a line between the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs. It all started after Corey Tropp was handily beaten and bloodied by the Leafs’ Jamie Devane midway through the third period of a 5-3 Leaf victory...

While people keep talking about the actions of John Scott and Phil Kessel during last Sunday’s Buffalo vs. Toronto brawl, there is another player whose situation is far more serious than anyone else’s coming out of that game.
Sabres forward Corey Tropp, whose fight with Jamie Devane led to the ensuing melee, suffered a broken jaw from the...
Buffalo Sabres rookie forward Corey Tropp is out indefinitely after breaking his jaw during a fight that sparked a melee in a preseason game at Toronto last weekend.
Coach Ron Rolston said Wednesday that Tropp is expected to miss at least five weeks after having surgery to repair the jaw. Tropp also sustained a concussion.
Tropp's head was bloodied following a fight with Toronto...

If there was ever a reason to simply laugh at the way the NHL is run in terms of supplementary discipline, this may be that reason: the NHL has fined Sabres head coach Ron Rolston for “player selection and team conduct.”
You read that right, a coach has been fined for putting a player out on the ice who was already of there in the first...
NEW YORK (Sept. 24, 2013) -- Buffalo Sabres head coach Ron Rolston has been fined for player selection and team conduct as a result of events that took place at 10:01 of the third period during NHL preseason game No. 61 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 22.
The events took place during the face-off after Buffalo forward Corey Tropp fought Toronto forward...
In case you missed it, the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs threw down in a preseason game last night, resulting in a full-line fight and a throw down between goalies, a lot of penalty minutes, and possible suspensions down the line. The fight started between with somewhat routine fight between Jamie Devane and Corey Tropp in which Tropp ended up getting beat. After that,...
It all began midway through the third period on last night, with the Leafs at home. Sabres forward Corey Tropp was led off the ice, dazed and bloody, after a fight with Leafs hopeful Jamie Devane. The fight was fair, but Tropp who isn’t a brawler got the worst end of the battle. After that, the Sabres retaliated with a line fight that ultimately led to a goalie fight. Jonathan...
from Damien Cox of The Spin,
But the guy who really deserves NHL sanctions for all that ensued?
Try Ron Rolston, the Sabres coach.
A U.S. college guy, no less, who has spent most of his time playing and coaching hockey in leagues where full face-masks are worn and fighting means immediate ejection.
Rolston, after seeing Corey Tropp decide to start a fight with apprenticing...
Buffalo's John Scott on the ice with bad intentions, Phil Kessel became a lumberjack not once but twice. Eventually everybody danced including bench hopper David Clarkson.
Right before all that? Corey Tropp vs Jamie Devane...

Buffalo Sabres tough guy John Scott was looking for a fight. The Toronto Maple Leafs weren't happy when he picked Phil Kessel as his opponent.
Kessel, who had scored twice in the Leafs' 5-3 preseason win Sunday night, is 6-foot even, and Scott is 6-8.
The two aren't even close to being in the same weight class and Kessel wasn't inclined to get involved. Kessel backtracked...

This is absolutely crazy. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres got into a massive brawl in a preseason game on Sunday night that even included a goalie fight. And if you’re anything like me, you love a good goalie fight.
The brawl began when Sabres heavyweight John Scott initiated a fight with Toronto’s Phil Kessel with 10:01 left in the third period. That came after a...
There was nothing meaningless about the Sabres-Leafs preseason game on Sunday night — at least regarding the fight that broke out, anyway.
Chaos ensued during the third period of the game, immediately after Buffalo’s Corey Tropp and Toronto’s Jamie Devane dropped the gloves. Once Tropp was taken off the ice with the help of his teammates, John Scott went after an unwilling...
Who says that Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres don't take the preseason games seriously?
At 10:01 of the third period, just as Corey Tropp had gotten the Sabres to within 4-3, all Hell broke loose when both benches cleared and ryan Miller fought Jonathon Bernier.
When the ice chips settled, the Sabres and Leafs combined for 93 penalty minutes in the line brawl.
John Scott and P...
Buffalo Sabres AGM Kevin Devine, his director of professional scouting, and the Sabres scouts know good players when they see them. Just look at the war chest of young, lethal weapons that the Sabres scouting team has accumulated the past five seasons. Go down the list:
The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed forward Corey Tropp to a one-year contract.
The Sabres are showing faith in Tropp, their 2007 third-round pick. He was regarded as a candidate to contend for a job in Buffalo last season before sustaining a serious injury to his left knee while playing in AHL Rochester.
Tropp was limited to playing in just six games, in which he had two goals and...

The number of restricted free agents that the Buffalo Sabres have to deal with is now down to one as the team has come to terms on a one-year contract with forward Corey Tropp.
Tropp, who was expected to compete for a roster spot during the 2013 season, missed all but seven games last season when he suffered a torn ACL in Rochester’s season-opener. In six games...
