Bogosian, 29, has been a member of the Sabers organization since being acquired by the Winnipeg Jets in trade in February 2015. Although Bogosian is one of the team’s veterans, Massena, N.Y., native, he struggled to stay on the ice for the team (he had never played more than 65 games at a time in Buffalo).

The Sabers played nine defensemen at the NHL level this season and Bogosian was found to be healthy even when the team used seven blueliners in Thursday’s 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators.

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman cites Pittsburgh Pittsburgh’s Alex Galchenyuk – referred to in the trade bloc – as a potential target for the Sabers, who want help going forward.

Both Butlerill and Buffalo coach Ralph Krueger declined to comment on Bogosian’s trade request after Thursday’s game. The blueliner contract carries a $ 5.14 million cap hit by the end of the 2019-20 season.
