Sabres recall Borgen from Amerks

Buffalo plays on the road in Detroit tonight

The Buffalo Sabres announced this morning that the team has recalled defenseman William Borgen from the Rochester Americans of the AHL. 

Borgen, 22, has dressed in all seven of Rochester's games this season, logging seven shots, 27 penalty minutes, and a plus-2 rating. 

He made great strides in his first full pro season last year, where he recorded 14 points (3+11) in 71 games for the Amerks. His play earned him a recall at the end of the season, and he skated in four NHL games with Buffalo, averaging 16:33 of ice time and three hits per game.

In last night's loss to the New York Rangers, neither forward Jimmy Vesey nor defenseman Marco Scandella were able to finish the game due to injuries. Forward Evan Rodrigues and defenseman John Gilmour are on the trip, but neither played against New York. 

We'll find out later today from head coach Ralph Krueger what lineup changes will be made. Buffalo plays the Red Wings tonight at Little Caesars Arena.

Faceoff from Detroit is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The Buick Game Night pregame show will begin at 7 on MSG.
