The Rochester Americans have sent two players to the ECHL, including former second-round pick Vaclav Karabacek.
Karabacek and fellow forward Daniel Muzito-Bagenda are off to Cincinnati, the Amerks announced Tuesday. Both were scratched for the Amerks' first two games.
The Sabres selected Karabacek with the 49th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. As a first-year pro last season, the winger had three goals and eight points in 23 games with Rochester. He also recorded five goals and 11 points in nine games with Elmira, the Sabres' former ECHL affiliate.
Muzito-Bagenda has a one-year, American Hockey League contract. He had nine goals and 15 points in 61 games with Rochester last season.
The Amerks also welcomed former Sabres captain Brian Gionta to practice Tuesday. He is not on the roster but is staying in shape as he prepares to represent the United States in the 2018 Olympics.
