Connor Knapp helped the Buffalo Sabres set an NHL record by becoming the ninth goalie to play for the team this season.

Knapp came into Saturday's game after Matthew Hackett suffered a leg injury. "I'm setting records right away when I get in," Knapp said. "It's a crazy year, for sure, within the organization." Knapp stopped six of seven shots against Boston.

Connor Knapp made his NHL debut in Saturday's loss to Boston.

He entered the game in relief during the third period after Matthew Hackett suffered an apparent leg injury and was removed from the ice on a stretcher. Knapp made six stops on seven shots in 11:35 of playing time. He could get his first NHL start in Sunday's finale, but it's uncertain right now how Buffalo will handle their crease situation.

Connor Knapp was called up from the minors Friday and will dress as Matthew Hackett's backup Saturday against the Bruins.

Knapp has played for four minor league teams this season and is really not much of a prospect. However, if he does get into a game he will help set a Buffalo franchise record for the most goalies to play in a game during a season. To date, eight different netminders have donned a Sabre jersey in 2013-14. If Knapp becomes the ninth, it will be the most in team history.

Connor Knapp is enjoying playing for his hometown team.

Knapp grew up watching the AHL Rochester Americans and is now serving as their number two goaltender in his rookie season. He spent the previous four seasons in the NCAA. "I was really excited when Buffalo drafted me," said Knapp. "When the new ownership purchased the Amerks it was a big motivator for me while I was at school. The idea of coming back home to play was thrilling." Knapp has a 3.04 GAA and .904 save percentage in five games this season.
