Veteran Buffalo Sabres forward Adam Mair has been placed on waivers, with the other 29 NHL teams given until noon Tuesday to put a claim on him.

Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier said the team has a glut of forwards with the addition of Tim Kennedy and Mike Grier, and he tried trading the 30-year-old Mair but couldn't find any takers.

If Mair isn't claimed, the Sabres could either keep him or send him and his US$775,000 salary to the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League. Mair has played just three games this season, missing the first four after undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery.

The Hamilton native played 72 or more games each of the past three seasons. He has played in more than 10 NHL seasons, including seven with the Sabres.
