Kassian apparently gets call from Sabres

The Sabres' top prospect appears set to make his NHL debut.

Zack Kassian, Buffalo's first-round pick in the 2009 draft, has been summoned from Rochester to play for the injury-plagued Sabres, according to the Twitter accounts of Kassian's friends and teammates.

"Congrats to my best friend zack kassian on getting the call up with the Buffalo Sabres!#lighterup!!" wrote Daniel Maggio, a junior player who lives in Kassian's hometown of Windsor, Ont.

Neither the Sabres nor Amerks have announced a transaction.

Kassian leads the Amerks with seven goals and 14 points in 18 games. An ankle injury to right wing Brad Boyes suffered during Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Boston coupled with a lower-body injury that kept right wing Patrick Kaleta out of practice today created the need for a forward.
