The Buffalo Sabres announced today that the team has assigned defenseman John Gilmour to the Rochester Americans of the AHL.
With Lawrence Pilut unavailable to play in last night's road game at Philadelphia due to illness, Gilmour was recalled to serve as the seventh defenseman.
In 36 AHL games this season, Gilmour has recorded 13 points (6+7) with two power-play goals.
Rochester is coming off a two-game sweep of Belleville on the road over the weekend. Last night, the Amerks scored three times in the third period to come away with a 4-2 victory. Jonas Johansson made 24 saves in his return to the Amerks lineup to earn the win.
They're in second place in the North Division, six points behind the Senators for the top seed.
Buffalo's next game will be Monday night against the Washington Capitals at KeyBank Center. Faceoff is set for 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.
