With new injuries to Tim Connolly and Rob Niedermayer, the Sabres have a chance to evaluate some of the roster in Portland with their newest call ups in Luke Adam and Colin Stuart. We touched on the talent that Adam has shown in Portland this season, but in his first call up to the Sabres he didn't impress much.
Adam played two games during his first stint with the team in late October. In those two games, he had no points and was a -1 overall. He also saw the ice on average of 11 minutes per game and played most of those minutes with Tyler Ennis and Mike Grier.
Colin Stuart signed with the Sabres in the offseason as a depth player for Portland and is seeing his first NHL since the 2008-09 season with the Atlanta Thrashers. In 51 career games, Stuart has 8 goals and 13 total points.
The Sabres have some time to heal around the Thanksgiving holiday with three games in the next 10 days. It also gives a look at some of the future of the team as well.
