The Buffalo Sabres made a minor league trade on Thursday, sending forward — and Williamsville native — Justin Bailey to the Philadelphia Flyers for forward Taylor Leier.

A fresh start might be what Bailey needs, as he was never able to hang around with the Sabres. He spent the bulk of his time in Rochester with the Amerks since being drafted in 2013.

Leier has 19 points in 34 AHL games this season.
