Sabres assign Johansson to Amerks

Johansson, 24, returns to Rochester after his first career recall.

The Buffalo Sabres announced on Friday morning that they have assigned goaltender Jonas Johansson to the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

Johansson, 24, returns to Rochester after completing his first career call-up to the National Hockey League.

In six games played, five of which were starts, Johansson posted a record of 1-3-1 with a 2.94 goals allowed average and a .894 save percentage.

With Johansson returning to Rochester, the presumption is that injured goaltender Linus Ullmark is ready to step back in and take the starting goaltending reins back for the final few weeks of the season.
