Buffalo Sabres getting healthy enough to demote three players to AHL Rochester

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The banged-up Buffalo Sabres are healthy enough to afford returning three players to the minors.

Forwards Paul Szczechura and Corey Tropp, and defenceman T.J. Brennan were re-assigned to AHL Rochester on Monday. The moves come as the Sabres had several injured regulars back on the ice for practice.

It's a group that included forwards Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta and defenceman Robyn Regehr, who each missed at least one game last week.

Forward Tyler Ennis is also considered close to returning after missing 16 games with an ankle injury.

The Sabres are 3-3-1 in their past seven and were minus nine regulars — including goalie Ryan Miller (concussion) — in a 5-1 win over Washington on Saturday. Buffalo hosts the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
