Sabres call up Foligno, Whitmore

The Sabres will have two more players join their NHL debut list after calling up forwards Marcus Foligno and Derek Whitmore from Rochester.

Foligno is in his first professional season. The son of Sabres legend Mike Foligno has nine goals and 12 points in 27 games.

Whitmore leads the Amerks with 13 goals and 20 points in 29 games. He is getting his first shot after playing 272 games in the Sabres' minor-league system.

The Sabres, who have nine players out, will visit Ottawa on Tuesday. Foligno's brother, Nick, is a forward for the Senators.
