Alexander Sulzer Recalled By Buffalo Sabres


The roster moves continue as Ted Nolan continues his in season training camp for Pat Lafontaine.  The next player taking the shuttle from Rochester to Buffalo – is Alexander Sulzer.

The defenseman was waived at the beginning of the season, sent to Rochester in order to offer some relief at the crowded blue line.

With the youth movement over in Buffalo, at least now, it seems as if Sulzer may be able to find a way back into the regular lineup.

I didn’t agree with the Buffalo Sabres sending Sulzer down at the beginning of the season.  I think he had proven himself worthy of a top six spot in Buffalo – and if anything the acquisition of Henrik Tallinder killed Alex Sulzer’s chances of a starting night job.

Sulzer joins the Buffalo Sabres for the second time this season.  He was called up for a one game stint in October.  Through ten games with the Amerks Alex Sulzer has two goals and five assists from the blue line.

In 33 games with the Buffalo Sabres Sulzer has six goals, six assist, and 16 penalty minutes.

Sulzer was acquired by the Buffalo Sabres from the Vancouver Canucks at the 2012 trade deadline and has appeared in 107 NHL games with the Sabres, Canucks, Florida Panthers, and Nashville Predators.

        Agreed

  • Vic Soga

    Yes they are trading for Leopold and Regehr next week to get that veteran presence. Who is sitting tomorrow? McNabb or Weber?

    • Jes

      I know man. can we bring bob corkum out of retirement?

      • Vic Soga

        Too young but Peca and Kevyn Adams are skating hard with the Juniors.

    I was disappointed when he was sent down and didn’t make the roster. If I had been GM, I would have put Myers on waivers, and when he cleared, sent him down to Rochester. I think he might do well in the AHL. Frankly, I don’t think he has enough smarts to play in the NHL – he just doesn’t seem to learn.

    I thought Sulzer was pretty consistent. If anything, I am bothered by Erhoff’s play- for one maybe he needs glasses because he can’t put anything on net and to me he really isn’t that much of a physical player, maybe I just tune into games when he is getting a penalty, but it just seems he takes poor penalties. I’m not even sure if I like McBaines play.
