Pysyk Handed Misconduct, Amerks Trail Series

News: Mark Pysyk was handed a 10-minute misconduct after he flipped the puck out of play in frustration after giving up a shorthanded goal in 4-0 loss Thursday in the AHL Playoffs.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk finished the game with 12 PIM and finished with a minus-1 rating playing alongside blue-chip prospect Rasmus Ristolainen on the Amerks' top pairing. The loss pushes Rochester to the brink of elimination, who managed just 18 shots against the Chicago Wolves. If Pysyk and Ristolainen can show some more chemistry playing together, they could start on the Sabres next year on the same pairing. The Amerks have to win Friday's game first, though.

Sabres Recall Pysyk

News: Mark Pysyk was recalled by the Sabres on Sunday, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Psysyk will join the team for the season finale and will likely get a chance to see some ice time. He has been between the two teams throughout the season, and will look for a chance at a more consistent role with the Sabres in the 2014-15 season.

Sabres' Pysyk Reassigned To Minors

News: Mark Pysyk was assigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk was only with the Sabres for one game, but he made the most of it by logging an assist and two penalty minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings. He should be a bigger part of the team's plans next season.

Pysyk Recalled By Sabres

News: The Sabres have recalled Mark Pysyk from AHL Rochester.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk, who has notched six points and recorded a minus-11 rating in 42 games with the big club to date, will bolster the depleted Buffalo blueline, which took another hit Sunday when Chad Ruhwedel suffered a concussion.

Sabres' Pysyk Sent To AHL

News: Mark Pysyk (undisclosed) was assigned to AHL Rochester on Friday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Players who are eligible to play in the AHL during the Olympic break must be assigned by Friday, and the Sabres would like Mark Pysyk to play as many game as possible. Though Pysyk was dealing with a nagging injury, it likely had little to do with the decision. Pysyk hasn't scored since December 23, but he's a young, talented defenseman. The Sabres are hoping he can elevate his play once he returns to Buffalo.

Sabres' Pysyk Not Expected To Play Thursday

News: Head coach Ted Nolan said Mark Pysyk (undisclosed) is "hour-to-hour," but is unlikely to play Thursday, reports WGR 550 SportsRadio.
Analysis: It sounds like Mark Pysyk will be a game-time decision, but don't hold your breath with Alexander Sulzer ready to go. Sulzer was activated off the IR recently but was a healthy scratch for Buffalo's game on Tuesday. Sulzer brings a little more defense to the table than Pysyk as the Sabres attempt to stop a four-game losing skid during which they've allowed 16 goals.

Sabres' Pysyk Misses Practice

News: Mark Pysyk sat out Wednesday's practice with a nagging injury.
Analysis: There's no word on the severity of the injury, but it sounds like the blueliner should be considered day-to-day until we know more. Mark Pysyk has one goal and five assists in 42 games on the season.

Sabres' Pysyk Scores Winner

News: Mark Pysyk scored the game-winner in overtime against the Coyotes on Monday.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk was called up from the AHL for this game, his first with the Sabres since December 12. It was his first goal and his fifth point on the season.

Sabres Recall Pysyk

News: Mark Pysyk was recalled from AHL Rochester on Monday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: After earning an Opening Night roster spot with a strong training camp, Mark Pysyk mostly languished in his 31 games with the Sabres, scoring just four points and posting a minus-11 rating before he was shipped out to Rochester. He could just be in line for a short-term appointment with the Sabres this time around.

Sabres' Pysyk Won't Partake In Spengler Cup

News: Demoted to Rochester on Tuesday, interim head coach Ted Nolan clarified the move and said Mark Pysyk will not play in the Spengler Cup, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: The demotion is an odd move if the Sabres don't plan on letting Mark Pysyk play in the Spengler Cup. Nolan has been using all sorts of lineups this year and has often talked about his desire to see everyone play. Despite being involved in junior hockey, Nolan has a reputation for eschewing young prospects and leaning on more veteran players. Despite being one of Buffalo's better defensemen this year, Nolan will give Chad Ruhwedel, who is two years older than Pysyk, a good look.

Sabres Send Pysyk To Rochester

News: The Sabres have sent Mark Pysyk down to AHL Rochester.
Analysis: With four points (all assists) and a minus-11 rating through 31 games, Mark Pysyk wasn't providing much for fantasy owners in Buffalo anyway. Chad Ruhwedel has been called up to replace Pysyk on the roster. This demotion isn't necessarily a knock against Pysyk's play -- the Sabres simply want him to play more regularly with the Amerks headed to Switzerland for the six-team Spengler Cup tournament, the second time an AHL team has accepted an invitation.

Sabres' Pysyk To Sit Against Flyers

News: Mark Pysyk will be a healthy scratch when the Sabres play the Flyers on Thursday night, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk has been one of the Sabres' better defenseman this year, but played poorly Tuesday night in a 4-1 loss to the Blues. He'd been playing on the first pairing with Christian Ehrhoff and averaging almost 21 minutes a night. Don't expect Pysyk to be a healthy scratch for too long -- he's one of Buffalo's best skaters and this benching is head coach Ted Nolan's way of sending a message as well as giving Brayden McNabb a good look. Adjust your rosters accordingly.

Pysyk Active In Sabres' Win

News: Mark Pysyk assisted on two of Buffalo's three goals in Friday's 3-1 win over Toronto.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk isn't known as a regular scorer from the blue line, but he has almost as many points as more offensively skilled players like Tyler Myers and Christian Ehrhoff. Don't rely on Pysyk for regular production.

Sabres' Pysyk In Line To Open Season With Sabres

News: Mark Pysyk appears to have locked down an Opening Night roster spot with the Sabres, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The 21-year-old hasn't been flashy in the preseason, but has been steady defensively and generally aware of his positioning on the blueline, a welcome sight for a Sabres squad that often failed to provide adequate protection for goaltender Ryan Miller last season. Mark Pysyk isn't expected to be much of a contributor offensively or by traditional fantasy numbers, but should at least see healthy minutes due to his strength and smarts.

Buffalo's Pysyk Ticketed For AHL

News: Mark Pysyk, who played 17:49 in Buffalo's 2-1 shootout win over the Islanders on Friday, is expected to join Rochester (AHL) for the AHL's playoffs where they will face Toronto (AHL), according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk, along with Mikhail Grigorenko and Brian Flynn, will help to bolster the Rochester roster as they compete for the Calder Cup.

Sabres' Pysyk Grabs Two Assists

News: Mark Pysyk collected a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Two games ago, he scored his first NHL goal, so this is a nice little run for Mark Pysyk. As a bonus, he also went plus-2 -- his first game with a positive rating since April 2. The Sabres' 2010 first-rounder, 23rd overall, is flashing some nice offensive potential, but still has a ways to go after posting just 18 points in 57 games for AHL Rochester this year.

Sabres' Pysyk Logging NHL Experience

News: Mark Pysyk has posted two assists and is averaging 14:39 of ice time in his first 10 games since being called up from AHL Rochester on Mar. 17.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk wasn't necessarily expected to play in the NHL during his first pro season, but injuries forced the Sabres' hand. Now that veterans Jordon Leopold and Robyn Regehr have been dealt away, expect the youngster to finish the season with the big club.

Sabres' Pysyk Making NHL Debut Sunday

News: Buffalo has called up Mark Pysyk from AHL Rochester and will make his NHL debut Sunday, wgr550.com reports.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk will replace Andrej Sekera, who is out with an upper-body injury, in the lineup Sunday.

Mark Pysyk: Successful Campaign For Sabres Prospect

News: Mark Pysyk was named to the WHL's Eastern Conference second All-Star team, reports the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: The 2010 first-round pick has captained his junior club in Edmonton to a 50-win season and is slated to turn pro in 2012-13. He remains a long way from patrolling the Sabres' blue line, but things are progressing nicely for the Alberta native.

Sabres Send Pysyk Back To Juniors

News: Mark Pysyk was sent back to juniors by the Sabres on Tuesday, according to The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Mark Pysyk, the first pick of the Sabres in the 2010 Entry Draft, will get one more year of seasoning with Edmonton of the WHL.

Buffalo Signs Pysyk

News: Pysyk signed an entry-level contract with Buffalo, Hockey Night In Canada's Jeff Marek reports.
Analysis: Pysyk was a first-round selection for Buffalo in the 2010 draft. He did well in the WHL last year, totaling 40 points (though just six goals) and skating to a plus-29 rating. Pysyk has one year of juniors left, but the Sabres think enough of his play that they wanted to get him inked sooner rather than later.
