Over the weekend, the Buffalo Sabres announced the team recalled defenseman Matt Hunwick from his conditioning loan with the Rochester Americans (AHL).

Hunwick (age 33, 5’11”, 194 pounds) has missed the first 32 games of the NHL season due to injury. He returns to the team after making his season debut during a conditioning loan with the Americans, during which he recorded an assist and a plus-2 rating.

The Warren, Michigan, native has appeared in 521 regular-season NHL games during 11 seasons spent with the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins. He was acquired by the Sabres from the Penguins in June.

The Buffalo Sabres also announced the team recalled defenseman Brendan Guhle from the Rochester Americans.

After appearing in 18 games with the Sabres in 2017-18, Guhle (age 21, 6’2”, 196 pounds) joins the Sabres for his first recall of the season. He has posted 13 points (3 goals, 10 assists) through 25 AHL games with the Americans this season.

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Guhle has totaled five assists in 21 career NHL games since being selected by the Sabres in the second round (51st overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

In a corresponding move, the team placed defenseman Lawrence Pilut on injured reserve.
