The Sabres announced that they have recalled goaltender Andrew Hammond from Rochester this afternoon. Carter Hutton apparently has a family issue to attend to, leaving the Sabres with just one goaltender in Jonas Johansson.
We want to wish all the best to Hutton and his family for whatever may be going on there.
In 27 games with the Amerks this season, Hammond has a 2.57 GAA and a .904 save percentage. He hasn’t appeared in an NHL game since the 2017-18 season with the Colorado Avalanche.
Johansson will get the start today against the Ducks.
The Sabres also recalled Lawrence Pilut as Marcus Johansson is out due to sickness.
