Seth Griffith (Bill Wippert/Buffalo Sabres)

Wallaceburg’s Seth Griffith is heading back down to the American Hockey League, after being left unclaimed through the NHL waiver wire.

The Buffalo Sabres put the 24-year-old winger on waivers on Sunday afternoon, and he will now be joining the Rochester Americans.

Griffith has 2 goals,1 assist and 14 shots in 18 games this season for Buffalo.

The Sabres had signed Griffith as a free agent back on July 1.

Griffith split time between the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maples Leafs organizations last season.

Griffith recorded five assists in 24 NHL games last season.

He also had 44 points in 38 games with the Toronto Marlies, the Leafs’ AHL affiliate.

The 5-foot-9, 191-pound former London Knight was originally selected by the Boston Bruins in the fifth round (131st overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.

The Americans are set to play in Utica on Wednesday.

Puck drops at 7 p.m.
