Sabres Hit By Injuries, May Call Up Parrish

On his weekly radio show this morning, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff revealed that Mike Grier, Patrick Kaleta, and Jochen Hecht are all likely to be out of the lineup tonight against the Penguins in Pittsburgh.  In fact, Kaleta has flown back to Buffalo to have his knee reevaluated.

Ruff said the Sabres “are looking into” calling up Mark Parrish, and there could even be a second callup due to an illness of an unnamed player.  Parrish is a 6-time 20+ goal scorer with the Florida Panthers and New York Islanders, and has tallied 11 goals and 24 assists in 42 games this season with the Portland Pirates (AHL).

Update 9:21 am: Parrish callup has been confirmed, and Luke Adam will be joining him.

Update 2:19 pm: Sick player is Thomas Vanek; he will not play tonight.
