The Buffalo Sabres today assigned goalie Jonas Johansson from the active roster to the taxi squad, a sign Carter Hutton could be ready for Tuesday’s home game against the New York Rangers.
Hutton left last Tuesday’s 3-0 loss in Philadelphia after Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov hit him in the head. Johansson replaced him for the final period.
Goalie Linus Ullmark has started the last two games.
The Sabres also sent forward Rasmus Asplund and goalie Dustin Tokarski from the taxi squad to the Rochester Americans’ training camp. The Amerks begin their season Feb. 5.
Asplund has played one NHL game this season.
