Sabres bring back two

‘Fasching scored one goal in the two games, while Nelson scored one goal and was busy shooting getting six on net.’

Fasching, Nelson hope to benefit from AHL experience

‘”You can tell it’s a little different game,” Nelson said of his experience in the AHL. “I mean just totally different. I’d say it’s a little sloppier but I feel like guys are still moving at a pretty good pace. Some really good players out there and I’m glad we could just put some minutes in there. I definitely felt the game there.”‘

Sabres recall Fasching, Nelson

‘Both players join the team after being assigned to Rochester on Oct. 21. In two games for the Amerks, Fasching (6’2″, 209 lbs., 7/58/1995) recorded one goal and a plus-1 rating. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native has two points (1+1) in nine career NHL games for the Sabres.’

Sabres see NHL’s new concussion protocol at work

‘Teams that refuse to remove their player will receive a $25,000 fine for the first offense, according to TSN, with substantially increasing fines for any subsequent offense. The league and the NHL Players’ Association jointly approved the protocol, with input from neurologists, team physicians, athletic trainers, St. Louis General Manager Doug Armstrong and various legal representatives.’

Healthy again, Sabres’ Jeanneret back for 42 games

‘“It wasn’t working very well, the old ticker,” Jeanneret said. “They sent me by air ambulance back to Canada to Hamilton, and I had a pacemaker installed. Since then, it’s fine. I don’t even think about it. It’s not even an issue.”‘

Moulson making an impact for Sabres

‘”For me, it’s trying to get better every day and that comes with hard work, making sure I’m working on the right things,” Moulson said after Thursday’s 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks in Rogers Arena. “I feel like I definitely have an extra jump, an extra gear compared to last year.”‘

Sabres send Fasching, Baptiste, Nelson to Amerks

‘The demotion will mean much-needed ice time for Nelson. The defenseman hasn’t played since appearing in the Sabres’ opener Oct. 13. He was a healthy scratch for the last three games.’

Sabres send 3 rookies to Amerks

‘Meanwhile, Fasching, a winger, and Nelson, a defenseman, have been sitting as healthy scratches. Both prospects jumped from college to the NHL late last season and have never played an AHL game.’

Sabres send down three

‘Tim Murray didn’t want some of his young players sitting around so Hudson Fasching, Nick Baptiste and Casey Nelson have been sent down.’

Sabres assign 3 players to Rochester

‘The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has assigned forwards Nicholas Baptiste and Hudson Fasching, and defenseman Casey Nelson to the Rochester Americans (AHL).’

‘”We have to string along 60-minute games,” Lehner said. “We can’t have a period on and a period off. When you see we have it there one period, there’s no reason we don’t have our system all 60 minutes. We have to work on that.”‘

Ristolainen’s assists adding spice to Sabres’ offense

‘Ristolainen played 23 minutes, 17 seconds in the season opener against Montreal, 26:43 in Sunday’s win in Edmonton and 26:04 in Tuesday’s overtime loss in Calgary. Coach Dan Bylsma said over the summer he was hoping to cut back on some of Ristolainen’s minutes this season. Bylsma laughed when reminded about that Wednesday and admitted it’s been no dice in that area so far.’
