Sabres reassign Bailey, Austin and Nelson to Rochester

With three days between games, including an off-day on Wednesday, the Buffalo Sabres reassigned three players to Rochester.

Forward Justin Bailey and defensemen Brady Austin and Casey Nelson were sent to the Amerks.

Bailey has two goals and two assists in 32 games with the Sabres this season. He was on his fourth recall of the season.

Austin made his NHL debut in Detroit on Monday. He had 19 minutes of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh and in two games registered four shots and was a minus-1.
