The Sabres University should be renamed the Sabres Infirmary (stole it from you Ted) considering how many injuries they’ve encountered so early in the season. Paul Szczechura is the most recent Rochester Americans player to be called up to the Buffalo Sabres. As of writing this no word yet on who he’ll be replacing in the lineup.
Szczechura is the only center on the Amerks roster that’s capable of playing in the NHL at this point so he has to be going up to play center and someone else moving to wing. He’ll join Brayden McNabb who was called last night to head to Buffalo to fill in for an injured Robyn Regehr.
This leaves the Amerks roster without Szczechura, McNabb, Brennan, Kassian, Tropp and MacIntyre. The Florida Panthers didn’t even encounter this many injuries in such a short amount of time when they were the affiliate of the Amerks.
The Vegas betting lines are now open to place odd’s on who’ll get injured during tonights Sabres game against the Washington Capitals.
Meanwhile here in Rochester the Amerks will be trying to win their first game of the season against the Hamilton Bulldogs. Given the way the team has played all season they’ll be down bodies but they’ll be in the game trying to win.
