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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
