Robin Lehner will wear a suit instead of goalie pads when the Sabres host the Rangers on Thursday night.
Lehner, who took part in the morning skate, will take the night off to rest his hip injury. The Sabres have recalled Linus Ullmark from Rochester to serve as Anders Nilsson's backup.
Ullmark is 7-7-1 with a .913 save percentage through 15 games with the Amerks this season. He appeared in 20 games for the Sabres as a rookie last season.
