Sabres recall McNabb to fill out defense

The Sabres, as expected, have recalled defenseman Brayden McNabb from Rochester. With Tyler Myers set to begin a three-game suspension and Andrej Sekera suffering from pneumonia, the Sabres were one man short on defense.

Because Sekera is ill, Buffalo was allowed to summon McNabb on an emergency basis. Teams are allowed only four regular recalls after the trade deadline but can make emergency recalls as needed, as General Manager Darcy Regier recently explained.

McNabb is expected to play tonight against Colorado. The first-year pro has one goal and five points in 20 games with the Sabres this season.
