Sabres recall D defenceman Chad Ruhwedel following injury to D Alexander Sulzer

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have recalled defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

The move on Saturday was made after defenceman Alexander Sulzer sustained a lower-body injury in Friday's 2-0 loss at Florida.

Ruhwedel, 23, has played in seven games for the Sabres this season. He hasn't recorded a point but has a team-best plus-3 rating.

The Sabres signed Ruhwedel out of UMass-Lowell in April 2013.
