The Sabres will have a trio of fresh faces at practice this morning.
The team has recalled forward Curtis Lazar from Rochester and announced that defensemen Zach Bogosian and Marco Scandella will be back with the team for the first time since sustaining their respective injuries.
Lazar joins the Sabres in the wake of an injury to forward Vladimir Sobotka, who left the team’s game in Sweden last Friday after a low bridge hit from Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov. The 24-year-old has nine points (4+5) in 11 games with the Amerks this season.
Scandella has been out since Oct. 24, when he sustained a lower-body injury during the team’s game in New York. Bogosian last played on March 23 of last season, then underwent hip surgery going into the offseason.
