Buffalo Sabres recall Matt Ellis from Rochester to fill in for Cody Hodgson

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have recalled left wing Matt Ellis from their American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester.

Ellis steps into the roster for Sabres leading scorer Cody Hodgson, who will miss his second straight game with a lower body injury.

Ellis played six games for the Sabres before being sent to Rochester, where he was selected captain.

He has 10 points in 25 games for the Americans, including two points and the shootout-winning goal in Friday night's outdoor win over Lake Erie at Rochester's Frontier Field.

He's yet to record a point for Buffalo this season.

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.
