Buffalo Sabres captain Jason Pominville has been asked to submit a list of eight teams to which he will not accept a trade.

He is expected to hand over the list to Sabres general manager Darcy Regier some time Monday night or Tuesday morning.

Pominville has a modified no-trade clause that blocks movement to eight teams.

Regier had reportedly told Pominville that with the team's current situation - 13th in the Eastern Conference and last in the Northeast Division - he needs to see what is available via trade before Wednesday's NHL trade deadline. According to RDS Renaud Lavoie, Regier said it's the only way for him to have discussions with other general managers.
