Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres may have suffered another injury on Thursday night as Rasmus Asplund has been called up from Rochester. The center has never played an NHL game and is in his second year with the Amerks.

In 13 games this season with Rochester, Asplund has one goal and seven assists for eight points. In 88 AHL games, he’s netted 11 goals and 38 assists for 49 points. Asplund played four years in the SHL before coming to North America. The 21-year-old is considered an excellent two-way center.

Johan Larsson suffered an upper-bpdy injury in Thursday's game and missed practice on Friday. Ralph Krueger has not ruled Larsson out for Saturday against Ottawa.

The Sabres will host the Senators on Saturday, then play in Chicago on Sunday.
