Sabres recall Ullmark, goalie in line to make NHL debut this weekend

The Sabres have a few intriguing goaltending prospects in their organization. One has arrived in Buffalo.

The Sabres recalled Linus Ullmark from Rochester on Friday morning. With back-to-back games Friday and Saturday, the 22-year-old is in line to make his NHL debut this weekend.

Ullmark, a sixth-round pick out of Sweden in the 2012 NHL Draft, is playing in North America for the first time this season. He is 1-2 with a .932 save percentage in Rochester.

Ullmark was limited during training camp because of offseason surgery on both his hips.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder played two seasons in Sweden's top professional league. He went 17-16 with a .931 save percentage during his first season with Modo. He was 12-20 with a .904 last year as Modo fielded a lesser team.
