Sabres bring in goalies from Canisius, Morrisville to fill in for Miller, Enroth

By John Vogl

Goaltenders Ryan Miller (United States) and Jhonas Enroth (Sweden) are still in Sochi for the medal round, so the Sabres needed netminders when they returned to practice today. They borrowed Canisius College sophomore Adam Harris and Morrisville senior Chris Azzano.

“My coach called me two nights ago,” Harris said in First Niagara Center. “He asked if I wanted to do it, and obviously I jumped at the opportunity. It helps me a lot in hockey. I’m facing these shooters, obviously the best in the world, and then I go back to college and I should hopefully get an edge on the shooters at that level.”

The fill-ins will practice with the Sabres through the weekend.

“As soon as the other guys get back then I’m back to the real world,” Harris said.

The real word awaits Miller and Enroth, too. They may not get back from Russia until Monday night, and the Sabres host the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

“One of them is going to have to play for sure,” Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said. “We’ll see which one had the best sleep on the plane coming home. Whichever one, he’ll play.”
