T.J. Brennan, the Sabres' top pick in the 2007 draft, announced on his Twitter page that Buffalo has called him up from Rochester. Sabres defenseman Mike Weber was injured during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to New Jersey, apparently paving the way for Brennan's promotion.
(Update at 5:36 p.m.: The Sabres have confirmed the call-up.)
Brennan is in his third season with the Sabres' organization and had yet to get called up. The 22-year-old has two goals and six points in 16 games with Rochester. He had 15 goals and 39 points in 72 AHL games last season.
The Sabres selected Brennan with the first pick in the second round in 2007. They did not have a first-round selection.
