Sabres' Miller absent, Tallinder injured; team calls up Hackett and Sulzer

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ryan Miller did not practice Saturday morning and the Buffalo Sabres gave no reason for their starting goalie's absence.

The Sabres have called up goalie Matt Hackett from AHL Rochester.

Also, defenceman Alexander Sulzer has been recalled by the Sabres after Henrik Tallinder sustained an upper body injury Friday night against Ottawa.

Sulzer cleared waivers Monday after failing to make the team out of training camp and was sent to Rochester. The 6-foot-1 defenceman has 12 points in 32 games with the Sabres since being acquired at the 2012 NHL trade deadline.

The Sabres did not have an update on Tallinder's condition.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
