The Buffalo Sabres have recalled goaltender Andrew Hammond and defenseman John Gilmour from the Rochester Americans (AHL). 

Hammond briefly joined the Sabres last week, serving as backup to rookie Jonas Johansson during Sunday's game against Anaheim while Carter Hutton was unavailable due to a family circumstance. The veteran is 13-11-2 with a .905 save percentage with Rochester this season. 

Gilmour joins Buffalo after the team placed Zach Bogosian on waivers and assigned Lawrence Pilut to Rochester on Friday. He broke camp with the Sabres in the fall, appearing in four games and averaging 17:03 of ice time before being assigned to Rochester in late November. 

The 26-year-old has 13 points (6+7) in 32 games with the Amerks. He scored his sixth goal of the season in Charlotte on Tuesday.
