The Sabres have called up Rasmus Asplund

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.

I don't know if Johan Larsson is why Asplund has been called up, but I can tell you Larsson was unavailable for post-game interviews after Thursday's game because he was in the training room.

The Sabres will host Ottawa on Saturday and play in Chicago on Sunday.
