The Buffalo Sabres sent defenseman Lawrence Pilut back to the Rochester Americans today.
The Sabres recalled Pilut, 23, last week to serve as a spare defenseman during their two-game trip to Sweden.
He was one of six Swedes on Buffalo’s roster.
Pilut played 33 NHL games as a rookie in 2018-19. He has scored one goal and six points in eight AHL games this season.
The Sabres have today and Tuesday off before resuming practice Wednesday.
