Linus Omark signed with Lulea of the Swedish Hockey League on Wednesday.

"I was clear all the time that I didn't want to play in the AHL, that it wouldn't be good for both me and Rochester," Omark told Swedish newspaper NSD, which provided an English translation to The Buffalo News. "The team wouldn't have got anything from me. They understand that as well, so they let me go to Europe instead." He contributed just two assists in 13 games with the Sabres after he was acquired from Edmonton in December.

Linus Omark is expected to suit up against his former Edmonton teammates Monday.

He's been a healthy scratch for Buffalo's last three games and six of the club's past eight. "So far it hasn't worked out too well, but maybe this time it will," interim coach Ted Nolan said. "We want to see what everybody thought he was capable of doing when they drafted him and he came in this league. He's a highly skilled player, but as we know skill can only get you so far." Omark has generated two assists in 11 games with Buffalo since being acquired from the Oilers. "We want to see him play with a little more grit combined with that skill set.

Linus Omark practiced Monday on the point of Buffalo's second power-play unit.

He saw some action there in Sunday's shootout win over Washington, so it looks the experiment will continue. "He did pretty well. He has a set of skills that very few have," interim coach Ted Nolan said. "We've just got to get him to do less skills and more finish, but he's doing well." The Sabres rank dead last in the NHL with only 71 goals and they sit 28th overall on the power play, so they should be more than willing to try new things. Omark has one assist in eight games since being acquired from Edmonton.

Linus Omark was forced to sit out Monday's game against Phoenix because of the flu.

He logged nearly 13 minutes and posted one shot in the defeat. Buffalo doesn't return to action until Friday night at Toronto and Omark should be available for that match-up.

Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Linus Omark will be in the Buffalo lineup when the team meets the Bruins in Boston tonight.

"I’m not 100 percent sure where we’ll put him yet but he’ll play," Nolan said. Omark was acquired this week in a trade with Edmonton which sent a conditional sixth-round pick to the Oilers in exchange for the Swedish forward, who spent most of this season in the AHL with Oklahoma City. Cody Hodgson is out with an upper body injury after taking a blocked shot off his wrist in the Sabres' 4-2 win over the Bruins Thursday. Nolan said he didn't know how long Hodgson would be out but guessed about two or three weeks.
