The Buffalo Sabres announced on Friday that both goaltender Linus Ullmark and defenseman Brendan Guhle have been assigned to the Rochester Americans. Both players played well in Thursday's win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, but they will head to Rochester with the Sabres on their league-mandated bye week.

Guhle registered his first career NHL point with a secondary assist on Kyle Okposo's third period goal against Columbus. In two games with the Sabres, he registered five shots on goal in 16:57 of average ice-time.

Meanwhile, Ullmark was the first star of Thursday's win with a 44-save effort while giving up only one goal-against.

Both players have thrived this year with the Rochester Americans. Ullmark was named an AHL All-Star with a record of 17-5-1, a 2.27 goals-against average and .928 save-percentage. Guhle has seven goals and 20 points in 35 games during his rookie year in Rochester.

Ullmark will not play in Rochester's game on Friday night against the Binghamton Devils. It will be Adam Wilcox getting the start in goal for the Amerks. It is still unknown whether or not Guhle will play with the Amerks playing Saturday night in Syracuse.
