The Buffalo Sabres announced today that the team has recalled forward Scott Wilson from the Rochester Americans and assigned goaltender Andrew Hammond to Rochester. 

Wilson, 27, has 19 points (9+10) in 29 games with the Amerks this season and two points (1+1) in six games with Buffalo. He recorded those points during his four-game stint with the team earlier this month.

Forward Michael Frolik will miss tomorrow night's road game against the Ottawa Senators due to illness.

Johan Larsson was given a maintenance day and did not practice on Monday, although head coach Ralph Krueger was optimistic that he would be available to play. Carter Hutton also did not practice on Monday due to a maintenance day. He stopped 20 of 22 shots in last night's 5-2 win over Toronto for his fifth victory in his last six appearances.

Both players traveled to Ottawa with the team.

Pregame coverage on MSG begins at 7 p.m. on Tuesday and the opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:52 due to a pregame ceremony where former Senators defenseman Chris Phillips' jersey number will be retired.
