According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, Wild enforcer Zenon Konopka has been claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Sabers.


On January 2 the Wild placed Konopka on waivers prior to a home game against the Buffalo Sabers.  The Wild activated Clayton Stoner in Konopka’s place and defeated the Sabers 4-1.

The last laugh was had by the Sabers when they claimed fan-favorite Zenon Konopka the day after the loss.

Farewell Zenon, you will be missed in Minnesota.
