BEYOND THE BOARDS
SABRES ASSIGN 12 PLAYERS TO AMERKS

The Buffalo Sabres announced Friday that 12 players have been assigned to the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

Forwards Colin Jacobs, Eric Locke, Jonathon McGuire, Jonathan Parker, Kevin Sundher, Shawn Szydlowski, and Frederick Roy, defensemen Alex Lepkowski and Matt Mackenzie and goaltenders Connor Knapp, Nathan Lieuwen and Andrey Makarov are now with the Amerks. Defenseman Nick Crawford, pending waivers, will also be assigned to Rochester.

Additionally, defenseman Brady Austin and forward Peter Trainor have been returned to their junior clubs. Austin plays for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League while Trainor is with Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The moves leave the Sabres with 41 players in training camp (25 forwards, 13 defensemen, three goaltenders).

"[We're down to] two teams and I think this weekend will be a big evaluation for a lot of guys with the back-to-back with Toronto. Hopefully [we'll] be able to trim it down from there," Rolston said after practice at First Niagara Center on Friday.

The Sabres play the Maple Leafs twice this weekend as the preseason continues. They host Toronto on Saturday at 7 p.m. and then go to Air Canada Centre on Sunday for a 7 p.m. face off.

Rolston said either Jhonas Enroth or Matt Hackett will start on Saturday.
