With Jochen Hecht (concussion) and Tyler Ennis (ankle) sidelined by injuries and Patrick Kaleta suspended four games by the NHL for a head-butt in Wednesday's game, the Sabres have called up forward Corey Tropp from Rochester of the American Hockey League.
It's the first recall of Tropp's career. He had 10 goals and 30 assists last year in the AHL. In 10 games this season, he shares the Amerks lead in goals (four) and has seven points.
Tropp was selected by the Sabres in the third round (89th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
