Debut delayed? Johnson doubtful, Sabres recall Makarov

3 Comments

Acquired at the deadline from the Islanders, Chad Johnson was set to make his Sabres debut tonight against Ottawa.

But plans appear to have changed.

After suffering some type of undisclosed injury during today’s morning skate, Johnson has been listed as doubtful and, in a corresponding move, the Sabres recalled Andrey Makarov from AHL Rochester.

If Johnson can’t go, Anders Lindback would get the start and Makarov would back up.
