Burgdoerfer called up


Another day, another call up.

Erik Burgdoerfer, a minor-league veteran playing for the Amerks, has been called up by the Sabres and will likely make his NHL debut tonight night against the Washington Capitals in Verizon Center.

With Taylor Fedun injured late in Saturday’s loss to Boston, General Manager Tim Murray is digging deep to find a warm body.

The 27-year-old Burgdoerfer has been exclusively in the ECHL and AHL since 2009. He has no goals and seven assists in 22 games for the Amerks this year after signing as a free agent over the summer. It’s been a long and winding road for Burgdoerfer. He’s played a whopping 429 minor league games.

I've been a Sabres fan since my first game in the Aud in '76 against the Habs. I sat in the lower golds for that game and though I've been to close to 400 games, I've never sat as close as I did that night.
