(WGR 550) - The Sabres sent Lawrence Pilut down to Rochester during the break to get some games in, but, in my mind, there was little doubt he’d be back.

Pilut played well in his six games in Buffalo and made other players healthy scratches so he could play.

Another indication that Pilut will be back for practice on Sunday is the AHL has announced that Pilut will be unavailable for the AHL All-Star game this weekend in Ontario, California. Pilut has been an All-Star in both seasons he played in the American Hockey League, but he will not have played in either game.

Replacing Pilut for the North Division is Syracuse defenseman Cameron Gaunce.

The Amerks are in Cleveland on Wednesday, and will then host Laval on Friday before traveling to Syracuse on Saturday.
