BUFFALO – With defenseman Josh Gorges battling a hip pointer, the Sabres recalled Taylor Fedun from the Rochester Americans this afternoon.
The Sabres start a two-game road trip tonight against the New York Rangers.
Fedun, 28, compiled four assists during an eight-game NHL stint earlier this season. In 20 AHL appearances this season, the Princeton product has four goals and points, tops among Amerks defensemen. His .85 points a game ranks ninth among AHL defensemen.
Gorges left Saturday afternoon’s 3-1 loss in Boston early but practiced Monday.
