Justin Bailey is the First Call Up of the Season

The Buffalo Sabres made the first call up of the season this morning by asking Justin Bailey to hop on a cross country flight to join the team in Anaheim. Kyle Okposo is sick and with the Sabres are struggling for offense they hope he’ll provide a spark.

Bailey has scored two goals in three games this season and put nine shots on net in those games. Last season Bailey only had two goals and two assists in 32 games for the Sabres. In 52 games for the Amerks last season he had 23 goals and 13 assists.

Phil Housley is expected to speak to media in California at 6:45pm ET and will likely provide an update on the playing status of Bailey.

Edit… he’s playing..

The organization was definitely hoping for different start without having to resort to an early call up. Is he ready? We’ll find out soon enough.

Zach Bogosian was put on injured reserve to open up a roster spot for Bailey.
