Sabres call up Rodrigues from Rochester

To make room, the Sabres send Kyle Criscuolo back to Rochester

December 04, 2017 - 9:53 am

The Buffalo Sabres have called up forward Evan Rodrigues from the Rochester Americans in the American Hockey League.

Rodrigues has five goals and five assists in eight games for Rochester since returning from a broken hand suffered in the preseason. Rodrigues looked poised to make the Sabres out of training camp before his injury, and has now gotten some good games in with the Amerks since his return. In 32 NHL games with the Sabres, Rodrigues has five goals and three assists.

In order to make room for Rodrigues, the Sabres have sent forward Kyle Criscuolo down to Rochester. Criscuolo played in eight games for the Sabres, but did not register a point in his time in Buffalo. Criscuolo has five goals and six assists in 14 games with the Amerks this season.
