The Sabres have just taken the ice for their morning skate in advance of tonight's game against the Red Wings, and here's a quick rundown of the latest roster moves:
---Defenseman Mark Pysyk has been called up from Rochester and will dress tonight. Christian Ehrhoff is on the ice but his status is uncertain after getting his ear sliced for 40 stitches Sunday. John Scott is on defense this morning.
---Goaltender Andrey Makarov has been recalled and will back up Matt Hackett tonight before returning to play for the Amerks Friday. We'll have to find out what the Sabres' plans are for the weekend.
---Luke Adam has been returned to Rochester because Marcus Foligno, Chris Stewart and Torrey Mitchell are all expected to return tonight. It will be Stewart's home debut. His two previous games for Buffalo were on the road, at Dallas and Tampa Bay. Drew Stafford is also skating today, but as an extra.
The lines are currently:
The defense pairs are: McCabe-Pysyk, Ehrhoff-Ristolainen, McBain-Scott. The concussed Chad Ruhwedel is obviously not here. Mike Weber is not on the ice either but he continues to nurse a foot problem and has taken morning skates off.
Stay tuned for more after practice.
