Defenseman

Buffalo Sabres

The Sabres have recalled Justin Falk from Rochester (AHL); expected to play on Friday.

Falk, 28, has not picked up a point in nine games with Rochester, but will replace Dmitry Kulikov in the lineup on Friday. Kulikov is dealing with an undisclosed injury, so Falk will make his Sabres debut. He has 23 points (2G / 21A) in 171 career NHL games.

The Sabres signed Justin Falk to a one-year deal worth $650K.

Falk, 27, has been a fringe NHLer for his entire career. The 6-foot-5, 224 lbs. defenseman split his 2015-16 season between Columbus and Lake Erie (AHL). He had four assists in 24 games with the Blue Jackets and nine points (2G / 7A) in 32 games with the Monsters. He will likely once again start the year in the AHL, but will be the first or second defenseman to get the call-up to the Sabres.

The Blue Jackets have acquired Justin Falk and a 5th round draft pick from the Wild for Jordan Leopold.

Falk has spent the majority of the season in the AHL, tallying seven points (1G / 6A) in 39 games with Iowa this season. He will actually report to the Blue Jackets with Kevin Connauton out for “a while.” Falk has no points and a minus-6 rating in 13 games at the NHL level this season.
