The New York State Thruway is getting some more traffic.
Plugging holes for injured players in the lineup and balancing a salary cap squeeze, Sabres General Manager Tim Murray has summoned Cal O’Reilly and Cole Schneider on the latest shuttle from Rochester.
Cal O’Reilly, Ryan O’Reilly’s older brother, is the American Hockey League’s top scorer with 3 goals and 15 assists. The 30-year-old had three goals and four assists in 20 games for the Sabres last season.
Cole Schneider, who played at St. Joe’s, gets his second recall of the season. He’s second in the AHL in scoring this year (7G-10A-17pts in 12 games) but has just one assist over four NHL games the last two seasons.
