The Sabres have a bye week, but Justin Bailey, Evan Rodrigues and Nick Baptiste do not. They have been sent back to Rochester.
The trio will actually be back in Buffalo on Wednesday. The Amerks will play the Utica Comets in KeyBank Center.
The latest call-up has gone well for all three players. Bailey has a goal and assist in 10 games while earning a spot alongside center Ryan O’Reilly and right wing Kyle Okposo. Rodrigues has centered Brian Gionta and Marcus Foligno, putting up two assists in six games. Baptiste, who played for sick Sam Reinhart over the weekend, had a goal and assist in two games.

The Amerks needed centers, so Evan Rodrigues moved to middle. He and the Sabres are benefiting from the switch. https://t.co/qAuh23VU1j
