Sabres recall Asplund from Rochester ahead of game against Colorado

The Buffalo Sabres announced this afternoon that forward Rasmus Asplund has been recalled from the Rochester Americans of the AHL.

Forwards Johan Larsson (lower body) and Curtis Lazar (illness), and defenseman Rasmus Dahlin (upper body) will be out of the lineup for tonight’s home game against the Colorado Avalanche. All three players are considered day-to-day.

Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger said this morning that the lineup would be a game-time decision based on the availability of players who are battling both injuries and illnesses.

“It’s a challenge,” Krueger said of the lineup uncertainty, “but I think it’s one that really brings us into focus and we just need to concentrate on the things we can do.”
