Sabres Recall Matt Tennyson

With Antipin out, Sabres call up a D from Rochester

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Buffalo Sabres Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

With Victor Antipin likely sidelined for the remainder of the season, and just a few games left, the Buffalo Sabres have recalled defenseman Matt Tennyson from the AHL’s Rochester Americans.

The Sabres visit the Leafs tonight for a 7 p.m. faceoff.

Tennyson, 27, has spent most of the season with the Amerks. He’s appeared in 49 games and has contributed three goals and eight assists for 11 points. He’s also put up 40 penalty minutes and is overall a minus-20 on the season.

Tennyson has previously appeared in 14 NHL games for the Sabres this season. He was with the NHL squad from the beginning of the season through November 4 and has been in Rochester ever since.

In those 14 games, Tennyson was a combined minus-8 and saw over 18 minutes of ice time in many of those. He registered eight penalty minutes and 24 shots on goal.

Overall, he has 119 games of NHL experience, between San Jose, Carolina and Buffalo.

Both Josh Gorges and Nathan Beaulieu were healthy scratches on Saturday against Nashville.

The Amerks, meanwhile, are inactive until Wednesday, when they visit the Laval Rocket. They then have four straight home games before finishing the regular season in Syracuse on April 14.
