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

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
