The Buffalo Sabres are looking to add to their roster leading up to the Feb. 25 trade deadline, but they may also try to move out a player or two in the coming weeks.

One player who would welcome a change of scenery is defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, whose agent, Kent Hughes, told The Associated Press his client would be open to a trade.

“He’s not unhappy in Buffalo, he’s just looking for more of an opportunity to play,” Hughes told The AP Wednesday night.

Hughes indicated Beaulieu has not formally demand a trade, but should the Sabres find a new destination for him, it might be in the 26-year-old’s best interest to move on.

Beaulieu has registered three goals and four assists for seven points in 26 games with the Sabres this season. He’s in the final year of his contract and can become a restricted free agent July 1.
