Matt Tennyson has struggled this season for Buffalo.

Tennyson has no points, 10 hits and nine blocks and a minus-6 rating in 12 games, but due to injuries he has averaged 18:09 of ice time per contest. Nathan Beaulieu, Josh Gorges and Zach Bogosian are not available. Justin Falk is close to playing again and Taylor Fedun has been called up, but they probably won't bump Tennyson from the lineup.
