OTTAWA -- The Sabres wouldn't rule Thomas Vanek out of Saturday night's game here after practice Friday but in case he can't go, they have again called up Marcus Foligno on an emergency basis from Rochester.
Foligno is on his fourth recall to Buffalo because he was jet-trotting the continent earlier this week in case he was needed. The only game he's actually played was the 4-1 loss to the Senators here on Dec. 20. He made his NHL debut that night against the team featuring his older brother, Nick, and game two might be another family reunion.
Marcus Foligno is tied for second in scoring on the Amerks with 34 points (14 goals, 20 assists), and has 70 penalty minutes in 55 games.
