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

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
