The Buffalo Sabres have assigned goaltender Jonas Johansson to the Rochester Americans, the team announced Friday. 

Johansson made six appearances with the Sabres after earning his first career recall on Jan. 29. He went 1-3-1 with an .894 save percentage and earned his first NHL win with a 25-save performance in a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Feb. 23.  

The Sabres have been practicing with three goaltenders since Linus Ullmark rejoined the team on Monday. Coach Ralph Krueger said Thursday that Ullmark, who has not played since Jan. 28 due to a lower-body injury, could be ready to back up Carter Hutton this weekend. 

Johansson is 13-3-3 with a .925 save percentage in 20 games with Rochester this season. He represented the team at the AHL All-Star Classic in January. 

The Amerks are on the road for back-to-back games against the first-place Belleville Senators this weekend.
