Buffalo defenseman Mark Pysyk scored his first goal of the season in the Sabres' 5-2 loss to the Senators in Ottawa Monday night.

Zemgus Girgensons also notched a goal for the Sabres, his 11th of the season. Girgensons' goal actually gave Buffalo a 2-1 lead at 8:37 of the second, but the Sens scored four goals after that, including two by Bobby Ryan, who had a hat trick on the night.

The Buffalo Sabres have recalled defenseman Mark Pysyk from the minors.

This is Pysyk's second recall as he was sent to the minors before Christmas. Rasmus Ristolainen (flu) and Andrej Meszaros (maintenance) were absent from practice on Sunday. Pysyk has no points in two games this season with one hit and a couple of blocked shots in his last game.

Mark Pysyk has been returned to the minors.

He dressed in two games with Sabres during his NHL callup. Pysyk had one hit and two blocks in 20:35 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. He may be back with the Sabres after the Christmas break if no one on the back end is able to return from injury.

Mark Pysyk logged nearly 20 minutes of ice time in his first appearances of the season with the Buffalo Sabres.

He suffered a shoulder injury back in September, which cost him a chance to crack Buffalo's roster out of training camp. "I'm a big Mark Pysyk fan," coach Ted Nolan said before Sunday's game. "It's just circumstances right now, and we'll see what happens in the future. He's a solid player, a solid kid. He's biding his time and doing what needs to be done in order to be here permanently. This kid has potential to be one of the leaders of this organization for many years to come, so I'm glad he gets a chance tonight." Pysyk will return to the minors if Tyler Myers and/or Mike Weber are ready to play on Tuesday versus Detroit.

Mark Pysyk (upper body) may return to practice next week.

Mark Pysyk's upper-body injury is likely to keep him out for one-to-two weeks.

Pysyk had to leave Tuesday's contest due to the ailment. He's in the running for a roster spot, so the timing of this injury is unfortunate for him.

Mark Pysyk has been sent down to the minors.

Pysyk has missed Buffalo's last two games, but interim coach Ted Nolan said it was because he was "banged up." Either way, the Sabres had some incentive to send him to the AHL because moving him there before 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday makes him eligible to stay in the minors over the Olympic break.
