Buffalo Sabres send rookie D Mark Pysyk to Rochester; promote D Chad Ruhwedel from AHL club

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have demoted defenceman Mark Pysyk to AHL Rochester, which will allow the rookie to play during the NHL's Olympic break.

The Sabres made the move before a deadline Friday that would have prevented Pysyk from playing in the minors during the 16-day break that begins Feb. 9.

Pysyk had missed Buffalo's past two games with an undisclosed injury. He has a goal and five assists in 42 games this season.

To fill his spot, the Sabres recalled defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from Rochester.

Buffalo (13-29-7) plays at Columbus (26-20-4) on Saturday.

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.
