Nov 13 - 3:13 PM

Justin Falk made his Sabres debut in Friday night's 2-1 OT loss to the Devils.

Buffalo signed Falk to a one-year, two-way deal over the summer. He started the year in the minors, but finally got a crack with the big club. Falk finished the game with a minus-1 rating, one shot on goal and one hit in 12:24 of ice time. There's no fantasy value here.

Justin Falk was summoned up by Columbus on Friday on an emergency basis.

Falk is a classic tweener. Now in his age-27 season he's seen just 168 career NHL games where he's posted 23 points and 151 PIMs. Should he play, and you're in a pinch, perhaps he'll scrap one for you.
