Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have recalled LW Tim Kennedy from Portland (AHL). The 22-year-old Kennedy was born and raised in Buffalo, NY.
Currently in his first pro season, Kennedy (4/30/1986, 5’10”, 176 lbs.) is second on the Pirates in scoring with 27 points (5+22) in 29 games. Kennedy’s 22 assists lead all rookies, and his 27 points are second behind the 33 scored by Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux.
Let’s see what the kid can do on, literally, home ice.
Faceoff against the Islanders is at 7 p.m.
