The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Corey Tropp from the minors to fill in for injured center Cody McCormick.
Buffalo's 2007 third-round draft pick rejoins the Sabres a week after making his NHL debut, in which he had a goal and assist in four games. Tropp also has four goals and three assists in 11 games this season with Rochester of the American Hockey League.
Tropp is expected to play Wednesday night, when the Northeast Division-leading Sabres host New Jersey.
McCormick sustained an undisclosed injury in a 3-2 shootout win at Montreal on Monday. Coach Lindy Ruff would only say that McCormick was not feeling well.

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller had plenty to get off his chest in speaking for the first time since being diagnosed with a concussion after being leveled by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic last weekend.
Speaking after he sat out Sabres practice on Monday, Miller isn't sure when he'll return. He says he has whiplash and is still experiencing soreness in his neck and...
Martin brodeur reminded everyone in Buffalo why he'll be a first-ballot Hall of Famer following his retirement.
Throughout his storied career, Brodeur has certainly had the Sabres' number. That trend continued Wednesday, as the Sabres fell to the New Jersey Devils 5-3 in front of a sold out First Niagara Center.
The Sabres' offense played well, managing...
Here's the buzz in Pegulaville:
The Sabres have completed their game day skate.
One and done.
Tyler Myers spent Monday night in the press box. Tonight vs. New Jersey, Myers will draw back in to the Buffalo starting lineup.
The snub in Montreal was the first ever healthy scratch of of Myers' career. Lindy Ruff had seen enough of the mistakes and turnovers, so...
We're probably beating a dead horse here but, just to prove how hypocritical Lindy Ruff is: Here's video from 2007, when his Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators line brawled, including Andrew Peters taking on Ray Emery. Emery doesn't even care if he wins these fights or not; he's just having a blast out there. Emery's awesome.Ruff's comments after that...
Jhonas Enroth made 25 saves, and Derek Roy tallied two points as the Buffalo Sabres came back from a 2-0 deficit to end the Canadiens’ two game win streak Monday night at the Bell Center in Montreal.
Enroth improved to 6-0 on the season in a game that the Sabres probably had no business winning.
Coming off the heels of their 6-2 lashing at the hands of the Boston Bruins, the Sabres...
When you think about all of the issues this team has faced already this season, remind yourself where the Sabres are in the standings. Why are fans complaining?
A lot has gone on since early October, when fans were pondering how Ville Leino, Christian Ehrhoff and Robyn Regehr would fit into the Sabres' lineup.
A month and a half later, the plans have changed, and there...
Can anyone recall a crazier start to a season for the Sabres? In just one month, I feel like we've lived through a season's worth of controversies/stories. I guess the more money Pegula brought about, the more problems we see. Alright, not really. I just wanted to use a Biggie song in this post and there you have it.
I'm sure talk show hosts and sports editors...
The next Sabres-Bruins games should feature ample high jinks. Buffalo felt collective shame in its failure to rally behind Ryan Miller after Milan Lucic plowed over him.Miller is sidelined by a concussion and the Sabres are left to explain their tepid response to that assault. Lucic never had to answer for his attack on Miller and the Sabres never bothered to steamroll Bruins goaltender...
Ryan Miller is still sore about the hit that sidelined him indefinitely.
Jhonas Enroth is trying to continue softening the blow for the Buffalo Sabres.
Enroth should be in net looking to win a seventh consecutive start Wednesday night as the Sabres seek to defeat the New Jersey Devils for a fourth straight time.
