Sabres recall John Gilmour, Andrew Hammond from Rochester

The Buffalo Sabres' roster shakeup continued Saturday with defenseman John Gilmour and goalie Andrew Hammond recalled from Rochester.

Gilmour, 26, will likely replace defenseman Zach Bogosian, who was placed on waivers Friday. If another team does not claim Bogosian before noon Saturday, the Sabres could assign him to Rochester or loan him to another American Hockey League team. Bogosian could also remain on the Sabres' roster, though that is unlikely after Gilmour joined the team.

Hammond, meanwhile, joined the team because Carter Hutton missed practice Saturday for "maintenance." Michael Frolik (illness) did not participate in the on-ice session, while Marcus Johansson (upper body) rejoined the team after not playing Thursday against Columbus.

Coach Ralph Krueger will address the media following practice Saturday morning.

Gilmour has six goals with seven assists and a minus-14 rating in 32 games with Rochester. He made the Sabres out of training camp and appeared in four games before being assigned to the Amerks in November.

Hammond, 32, has a .905 save percentage in 28 games with Rochester. He has not played in an NHL game since April 22, 2018.
