Lieuwen (8/8/91, 6'5", 186 lbs) joins the Sabres for his first career recall since being drafted by Buffalo in the sixth round (167th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old Lieuwen has a record of 17-11-2 in 32 games with the Amerks this season, including a pair of shutouts. Lieuwen is also among the AHL leaders in both save% (.922) and GAA (2.34).

The Abbotsford, BC-native signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Sabres back on May 5, 2012.
