The Buffalo Sabres sent forward Curtis Lazar back to the Rochester Americans this afternoon.
Winger Conor Sheary returned from his upper-body injury for Thursday’s 3-0 win against the Los Angeles Kings, giving the Sabres two extra forwards.
The Sabres, who close their three-game road trip Saturday against the San Jose Sharks, scratched Lazar all three games he was with them.
The Sabres recalled Lazar, 24, on Sunday.
The former first-round pick has compiled one assist in three contests with the Amerks this season. They host the Cleveland Monsters tonight.
