We have our first call up of the season. Corey Tropp has been rewarded for his consistent play in the first 10 games of the season for the Amerks with a call up to the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres needed the extra body thanks to Patrick Kaleta’s headbutt that resulted in a four game suspension (Shanaban video here of the hit). He should fit in well on that line with the way he plays.
The Amerks are already in Binghamton for their game on Friday night, it’ll be interesting to see if they told him about this before he drove down or if he’s renting a car to drive back this way.
