Sabres recall Sulzer; LaFontaine updates GM search

By John Vogl

Alexander Sulzer is back with the Sabres, who are back on the ice after a day off.

The Sabres recalled the defenseman following Friday night's game in Rochester, a 3-2 loss to Utica that was watched by President of Hockey Operations Pat LaFontaine and Sabres coach Ted Nolan.

Sulzer is back for the second time this season. He was called up Oct. 5 but did not play in Pittsburgh. In 10 games with the Amerks, the veteran defenseman has two goals and seven points.

The Sabres are using eight defensemen during this morning's practice at Riverside Ice Rink: Sulzer, Mark Pysyk, Brayden McNabb, Henrik Tallinder, Tyler Myers, Jamie McBain, Mike Weber and John Scott.

The forward line trios are: Matt Moulson-Cody Hodgson-Drew Stafford, Ville Leino-Steve Ott-Tyler Ennis, Zemgus Girgensons-Mikhail Grigorenko-Luke Adam, and Corey Tropp-Marcus Foligno-Brian Flynn. Cody McCormick is not practicing.

LaFontaine updated the Rochester media on the search for a general manager, and the video is below.
