The Buffalo Sabres announced this morning that the team has recalled goaltender Jonas Johansson from the Rochester Americans of the AHL.

In 20 games with the Amerks this season, Johansson, 24, has compiled a record of 13-3-3 with a 2.19 goals-against average (3rd in the AHL) and a .925 save percentage (5th). He's also posted two shutouts. 

Drafted in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft (61st overall), Johansson was selected to participate in the 2020 AHL All-Star Classic, which took place on Sunday and Monday.

In 2018-19, his second season with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL, he went 18-5-3. He played 10 games with Rochester last year.

He has also represented Sweden at the 2013 IIHF World Under-18 Championship and won a silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

This is his first career recall to the NHL.

Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark left last night's game with a lower-body injury. Coach Ralph Krueger said he'd be further evaluated today. Buffalo is set to practice at noon. Stay tuned to Sabres.com and our social media platforms for updates throughout the day.
