Tropp called up

The Sabres have called up winger Corey Tropp from Rochester and he's on the ice today for their optional morning skate in First Niagara Center. Tropp is likely to replace Brad Boyes tonight; Cody McCormick is skating this morning but Lindy Ruff said yesterday he has yet to be cleared for contact.

Tropp has seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points in 22 games in Rochester.  He had one goal and one assist in 14 games for the Sabres, but suffered a concussion when he was destroyed by Florida's Dmitry Kulikov in a game here on Dec. 9; Kulikov is the same guy who took out Derek Roy last year.

Tropp returned to the Amerks in early January and played three games before having a setback. He missed 10 more games before finally returning to the lineup earlier this month.

As if anyone would want Boyes anyway, an injury now would kill any chances of renting him out at the deadline. More updates after the skate.
