Sabres Recall Will Borgen

Borgen recalled from Rochester for first time this season

The Buffalo Sabres have announced the recall of defenseman Will Borgen from the Rochester Americans (AHL).

Borgen, 22, comes to Buffalo on his first recall of the young season.

In seven AHL games this season, Borgen has yet to get on the scoresheet but his play on the ice has clearly been good enough to warrant a call-up, even with the current injury situation.

Borgen made his NHL debut earlier this calendar year on March 29 against the Ottawa Senators but has not yet made his 2019-20 NHL season debut.

It is unclear if Borgen will suit up for the Sabres against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night but it should be noted that defenseman Marco Scandella left Thursday night’s game against the New York Rangers with a lower-body injury.

Scandella did return to the game but his current status is unknown.
