The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has recalled goaltender Linus Ullmark from the Rochester Americans (AHL). In a related move, the Amerks have also recalled goaltender Jason Kasdorf from the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL.
Ullmark joins the team for his third recall of 2016-17 but has yet to appear in an NHL game this season. With 28 appearances for the Americans this season, the Lugnvik, Sweden native has already matched the total from his rookie AHL season in 2015-16. He has posted a 14-13-1 record and .906 save percentage so far in his second North American season.
Buffalo’s sixth-round pick (163rd overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Ullmark played in 20 games for the Sabres in 2015-16, posting a .913 save percentage and a 2.60 goals-against average. His 8-10-2 record in 2015-16 included wins in each of his last three NHL appearances.
Kasdorf, 24, rejoins the Amerks after appearing in three games with the team this season. A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Kasdorf shows a 2-6-0 record with a 4.39 goals-against average and a .869 save percentage in eight appearances with the Jackals. He picked up his first pro win on Nov. 27 against the Manchester Monarchs, making 24 saves on 25 shots in a 2-1 overtime victory.
Prior to turning pro, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound netminder completed a four-year collegiate career at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I.), posting a record of 38-37-9 in 88 games to go along with 2.39 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage.
