TJ Brennan was sent back to the Rochester Americans after being called up by the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday to be available on the road if there were any more injuries, he didn’t play. He’s back with the team and playing today in Toronto.
Mike Weber is said to be out for “weeks” with an injury which means there’ll probably be more call ups by the Sabres in the “weeks” ahead so that the team has an extra defenseman when on the road or if the Amerks will be anywhere not within a close driving distance.
The Amerks have an abundance of defensemen so this shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Ron Rolston had made it clear from the start of the season they’d carry extra’s for reasons just like this.
Game two of the home and home for the Amerks and Marlies is set to start any minute. The Marlies beat the Amerks last night 2-1 thanks to a short handed goal late in the third period.
