The Buffalo Sabres have recalled goaltender Malcolm Subban from the Rochester Americans, the team announced Friday. Goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen has been loaned to Rochester.
The Sabres acquired Subban, 27, from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for future considerations on Thursday. He has an .893 save percentage in five appearances with AHL Rockford this season.
Luukkonen was recalled Thursday to back up Aaron Dell during Buffalo’s 7-4 loss at Florida. Fellow goaltender Dustin Tokarski is in the NHL’s Covid-19 protocol.
