    The Sabres assigned Lazar to AHL Rochester on Friday.

    Impact

    Conor Sheary (upper body) returned to action Thursday against the Kings, so Buffalo's no longer in need of Lazar's services as a depth forward. The 24-year-old will likely bounce between the AHL and NHL throughout the 2019-20 campaign.

    Lazar was called up from AHL Rochester on Sunday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Impact

    Lazar has 246 games of NHL experience but suited up for just one contest with Calgary last season as he was stashed away with AHL Stockton for nearly the entire campaign. The Sabres have a four-game slate this week, including three games on the west coast. The 24-year-old will likely be scratched in several of those but could slide into the lineup at some point.

    News

    Lazar was waived by the Sabres for the purpose of reassignment Monday.

    Impact

    Lazar, 24, didn't fit the mold in Calgary last year, and he spent nearly all his time with AHL Stockton, generating 20 goals and 41 points in 57 games. The 24-year-old couldn't make it with the Sabres during training camp either, so he'll land with AHL Rochester if he clears waivers. Lazar likely won't be the first call-up in the event of injuries, but it won't be surprising if he gets a few games with the big club at some point.
