The Buffalo Sabres have recalled defenseman Mattias Samuelsson from the Rochester Americans (AHL).
Samuelsson, 21, has 11 points (3+8) over 19 games in his first season with Rochester. He recorded a goal and an assist for the Amerks last night.
The 6-foot-4, 226-pound left-shot defenseman was drafted by Buffalo in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft. This is his first career recall.
In corresponding moves, forward Steven Fogarty has been reassigned to the taxi squad and forward C.J. Smith has been reassigned to Rochester.
Sabres interim coach Don Granato will provide lineup news later this afternoon. Stay tuned to Sabres.com, the club’s social media platforms and the new Sabres app for the latest updates.
