BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have demoted rookie forward Nathan Gerbe to Portland in time for the start of the American Hockey League playoffs.

Gerbe had a goal and two assists in eight games with Buffalo after being called up on March 28.

Portland opens its best-of-seven Calder Cup division semifinal playoff series against Manchester on Friday.
