The Buffalo Sabres announced Monday evening that goaltender Jonas Johansson has been recalled from the taxi squad. Linus Ullmark will miss tonight's game against the Philadelphia Flyers for personal reasons.
Johansson, 25, made his NHL debut last season, playing in six games for Buffalo. He was also an AHL All-Star, posting a 14-4-3 record in Rochester with a .921 save percentage and a 2.28 goals-against average in 22 games.
Carter Hutton started opening night for the Sabres on Thursday and made 22 saves on 27 shots in a 6-4 loss to Washington. Sabres coach Ralph Krueger did not publicly name a starting goaltender against Philadelphia after the team's morning skate.
Tonight's game can be seen nationally at 7:30 p.m. on NBCSN. Dan Dunleavy and Rob Ray will have the radio call on WGR 550.
