Found February 02, 2012 on Fox Sports:
The Buffalo Sabres have demoted defenseman Brayden McNabb to AHL Rochester, where the rookie will have the benefit of getting more playing time after missing eight games with a concussion. Coach Lindy Ruff announced the move Thursday, saying McNabb has been cleared to play. Ruff says McNabb was sent down to allow him to get additional ice time. That's unlikely to happen in Buffalo, where Ruff is comfortable with his current six-player defensive rotation. It's a group that's finally healthy. Christian Ehrhoff returned last week after missing 11 games with a rib injury, and Robyn Regehr is also back after missing four games with a shoulder injury. McNabb had a goal and four assists in 20 games in Buffalo this season, before getting hurt against Toronto on Jan. 13.
