Mark Pysyk Recalled By Buffalo Sabres

Defenseman Mark Pysyk has been recalled by the Buffalo Sabres to join the parent club.  This will mark the first time in his career that Pysyk will put on the blue and gold of the Buffalo Sabres.  

Through 57 games this season, Pysyk has scored 18 points, and leads the team in plus/minus, tied for first with fellow Amerk and callup Kevin Porter.

This is an interesting move given the fact that the Buffalo Sabres just moved T.J. Brennan for nothing more than a fifth round draft pick.

With Andrej Sekera out of the lineup with an upper body injury, without having T.J. Brennan standing in the way it clears the way for Pysyk to make his National Hockey League debut.

The move is another interesting, with Pysyk having no NHL body of work, and Brayden McNabb putting up good numbers in the American Hockey League as well.

Interim Head Coach Ron Rolston is definitely making his mark on this team, and it could be costing him the allegiance of some players (maybe that is why Brennan had to go).

It could also be the case that the Buffalo Sabres are going to use every recall they possibly can to see how the youth and prospects in Rochester are going to adapt to the National Hockey League as the team looks to rebrand itself and recreate a roster that is going to win hockey games on a consistent basis.
