Tennyson was deemed a game-time decision leading up to this one, but he the team decided not to dress him. He's considered day-to-day right now.

Matt Tennyson (undisclosed) is a game-time decision on Tuesday.

That's what Sabres coach Phil Housley said at least, but Tennyson is probably more likely to miss Tuesday's contest than he is to play in it. Zach Redmond was summoned on Tuesday and it looks like he'll take Tennyson's place.

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. Coach Phil Housley likes Tennyson despite the mistakes he has made on the back end.

The Sabres have signed Matt Tennyson to a two-year deal.

Tennyson toiled on the Hurricanes' blueline last season posting a modest five points in 37 games. He will battle for a job on the Sabres' third defense pairing but we're betting he plays most of the season in Rochester of the AHL.
