The Sabres made some roster moves Thursday morning, recalling forward Kyle Criscuolo and defenseman Casey Nelson from the Rochester Americans. They placed defensemen Taylor Fedun and Matt Tennyson on injured reserve.
Criscuolo gets his first recall after signing a two-year contract with the Sabres in July. In 14 games with the Amerks he is tied for the team lead with 11 points (five goals, six assists). Nelson has four points (one goal, 13 assists) in 14 games with the Amerks. Nelson has played 18 career NHL games with the Sabres with four assists.
