Buffalo Sabres promote F Varone from AHL Rochester; demote D McNabb, F Porter

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres are shuffling their roster by promoting forward Phil Varone from their AHL affiliate in Rochester.

The Sabres, on Wednesday, also demoted defenceman Brayden McNabb and forward Kevin Porter to Rochester.

Varone is in his third season with Rochester, and leads the Americans with 33 points (eight goals, 25 assists) in 38 games this season. He gets an opportunity to make his NHL debut as early as Thursday, when Buffalo hosts Carolina.

The Sabres (13-28-7) are last in the NHL and 0-2-2 in their past four.

Porter has an assist in 12 games, and McNabb has no points in 12 games with Buffalo season.

The moves provide Porter and McNabb an opportunity to continue developing in the minors during the NHL Olympic break, which opens Feb. 9.
