Rasmus Asplund, Lawrence Pilut and Scott Wilson won't be resting in preparation for a possible second-half playoff push with the Buffalo Sabres.
All three were assigned to the Rochester Americans on Sunday, giving them an opportunity to play American Hockey League games during the Sabres' bye week and All-Star break. The Amerks play three games this week, beginning Wednesday night in Cleveland.
Asplund, 22, played 28 games with the Sabres after being recalled Nov. 16. He had one goal among three points with a minus-4 rating and was a healthy scratch in three of the final games before the break.
Pilut, meanwhile, had zero points in six games after joining the Sabres earlier this month. He was recalled while Jake McCabe nursed an upper-body injury and had zero shots on goal in 13:58 Saturday night in Nashville. The assignment also allows Pilut to play in the AHL All-Star Classic, which will be held Jan. 26-27 in Ontario, Calif.
Wilson played only two of seven possible games since being recalled by the Sabres. He had zero shots on goal with a minus-1 rating.
