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.

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
