Mikhail Grigorenko is back with the Sabres, and he's bringing a career-high assists mark with him.
The center, recalled by Buffalo on Saturday afternoon because of injuries to Brian Gionta, Marcus Foligno and Torrey Mitchell, recorded three helpers Friday in Rochester. He'll look to continue the hot streak Saturday night when the Islanders visit First Niagara Center.
Grigorenko is joining the Sabres for third time. He has one assist in four games. The first-round pick from 2012 has seven goals and 22 points in 30 games with the Amerks.
