The Buffalo Sabres have assigned centre Sam Reinhart to the Western Hockey Leagues Kootenay Ice. Selected second overall by the Sabres at the 2014 NHL Draft, Reinhart has appeared in nine games with the team in 2014-15, notching one assist. The first year of Reinharts entry-level contract is preserved by virtue of the team sending him back to junior before his 10th NHL game. We want him to get back there and get stronger, Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. Hes going have to find a way - two or three times a week - to slip out on his own and get to the gym and get stronger. Reinhart appeared in 60 games with the Ice in 2013-14, scoring 36 goals and 69 assists for a team-leading 105 points. We want him to think a little more about conditioning and strength and things like that. Hell find a balance with our help, Murray added. The Sabres have managed a 2-8-1 record for just five points through 11 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes - who have played three fewer games - have a lower points total this season. Reinhart has averaged 10:21 of ice-time in his nine games, almost all of it at even-strength. The start were off to as a team, I think, has an effect on a young guy, Murray said. A young guy plays to what the team is doing. If the team is really successful, I think some of the individual success comes to young players. If the team is going through a rough patch, that kid will go through the rough patch with the team. He was awarded the 2013-14 Four Broncos Memorial Trophy as WHL Player of the Year. He was also a member of Canadas fourth-place 2014 World Junior team. Murray believes this years World Junior tournament will be an important stepping stone in Reinharts development. The World Junior [tournament] becomes important because hes going to play a big role. Hes going to be a leader on the team, Murray said. Hockey Canadas going to lean on him, as they are with a couple other guys. Its a great chance for him to feel good about his game again. Reinhart scored two goals and two assists in seven games at the 2014 tournament and, as a returning member, is a virtual lock to make the team. The Sabres could face another decision in the coming weeks with defenceman Nikita Zadorov. Buffalo selected the six-foot-five, 235-pound Russian blueliner 16th overall in 2013, but the defender has only appeared in one game for the Sabres in 2014-15. Zadorov, 19, can not be assigned to the American Hockey League, so the Sabres must reassign him to either the Ontario Hockey Leagues London Knights before he plays his 10th game if they wish to preserve a year of his entry-level contract or arrange for him to play overseas. TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reported earlier this week that Zadorovs agent has expressed his preference that Zadorov be allowed to play in Russias Kontinental Hockey League. Murray mentioned that Zadorovs situation has taken a back seat to Reinharts up until now. I havent come to [a] decision yet, he said. That could be tomorrow, that could be in three weeks. Murray noted that any possible move to the KHL was out of his hands. All I know is he stays here for us or he goes to London, Murray said. After that we wont be involved. We cant be involved. Weve tried every avenue and weve been shut down at every avenue. We cant send him to the American League, as per the CBA and the agreement with junior hockey and the things they do. Were talking verbal agreements here and stuff thats way out of our hands. The Sabres GM added that he would be in favour of a rule change that might offer an alternative to the mandatory return of underage players to junior. Nothing against junior hockey, I grew up watching it and know a lot of people in the game, Murray said. There are certain players that are beyond that. I dont know if its an exemption, he continued. I was talking to our guys upstairs and maybe they give us 20 games that we could send [Reinhart and Zadorov] down for and then we have to decide in 20 games: Are they going to junior? Or, are they going to play the NHL? But Murray sees why there would be resistance from the teams that own the junior rights to these players. [CHL clubs] are not going to agree to anything like that. They have to protect their franchises and they feel that they sell tickets based on stars coming back. I understand that. Its a dilemma for development and its not me talking about it, its multiple teams talking about it. Its snowballing right now.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Home town players Thomas Aiken and Justin Walters moved into a tie for the lead at 17 under at the Joburg Open on Saturday as overnight pace-setters Edoardo Molinari and David Horsey lost ground. Aiken carded a 9-under 63 on the East Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington, while Walters shot an 8-under 64 to open a two-shot lead on the chasers. The Johannesburg-born pair were clear of South Koreas Jin Jeong (66) on 15 under heading to the final round of the European Tour event. Finlands Roope Kakko is 14 under and another stroke back. Aiken had five birdies on the front nine and five on the back, while Walters opened with five birdies on the front and finished with an eagle to draw level with Aiken after putting his second to within two feet on No. 18 and tapping in.

"Im super excited for tomorrow because its what we play for." South Africans have won five of the seven previous Joburg Opens.

Aiken, a two-time winner on the tour, was impressive after dropping his only shot of the day on No. 2. His good friend Walters also had just one drop, on No. 16, before finishing with a flourish with his three on the par-5 last hole. Jeong also collected an eagle on the way to his 6-under 66 and Kakko eagled No. 18 to claw back the two shots he lost with a double bogey on No. 4. Scotlands Alastair Forsyth and South Africas George Coetzee were 13 under and tied for fifth.
