Sabres shuffle roster by recalling Porter, Ruhwedel from AHL Rochester and demoting 3

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHL's worst team.

On their way down to AHL Rochester are forward Luke Adam and defencemen Mark Pysyk and Brayden McNabb. The moves were made Tuesday, before the Sabres (7-23-3) hosted the Winnipeg Jets.

The shuffle is part of an ongoing player evaluation being conducted by interim coach Ted Nolan and team president Pat LaFontaine. The two took over last month after coach Ron Rolston and general manager Darcy Regier were fired.

The Sabres are also looking for a spark. They are 2-9-1 in their last 12 games and have scored more than one goal in regulation just twice during that stretch.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
