Sabres recall defenseman Lawrence Pilut

Pilut returns to the Sabres following the NHL All-Star Break.

The Buffalo Sabres announced on Sunday morning that they have recalled defenseman Lawrence Pilut from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

Pilut, 24 years old, re-joins the Buffalo Sabres on his third recall of the season.

With the Rochester Americans this season, Pilut has amassed 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in 30 games.

Pilut recorded the game-winning overtime goal in the only game he played while down with the Americans.

Pilut is likely to return to the lineup for the Buffalo Sabres when they return from their All-Star Break on Tuesday.
