Pilut played in 10 games during his call up to Buffalo this season, with no points and a minus-4 rating, while averaging 16:39 of ice time per-game. This is Pilut's second season with the Sabres organization, where he has six points (1+5) in 43 career NHL games.

Asplund had a lenghty call up for his first NHL action since being drafted in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft. Seeing limited minutes as a rookie, Asplund collected three points (1+2) in 29 NHL games, while averaging 10:50 of ice time per-game.

The Sabres host the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. at KeyBank Center. Pregame coverage with Brian Koziol will begin at 2 p.m. on WGR Sports Radio 550.
