Linus Ullmark has been sent to AHL Rochester.
That's to be expected as Robin Lehner and Chad Johnson are occupying the team's starting and backup goaltending spots. Ullmark posted a 2.87 GAA and .909 save percentage in 55 AHL contests in 2016-17. It's likely that he'll be the one that gets summoned in the event of a goalie injury. Sep 28 - 5:55 PM

With the signing of free agent Chad Johnson, Linus Ullmark is slated to start the 2017-18 season in Rochester of the AHL.

The Sabres are still high on Ullmark but GM Jason Botterill said Saturday that the team is happy with the tandem of Robin Lehner and Johnson in Buffalo next season. "We’ve always viewed Ullmark as a very importance piece of our organization moving forward," Botterill said. "He’s a goalie that has taken big strides in his game the last 12 months or so here. He’s a guy that I’m getting more familiar with. "I think he could handle the backup role in the National Hockey League this upcoming year, but it’s also as a young goalie, I’m a big believer that he needs to be playing. I think with the scenario of having Robin and Chad, and Ullmark in the three hole, it’s a real strength of our organization. If there is injuries along the way, we’re going to be well-prepared." Unless you have a deppe pool with a reserve list, it may be time to cut Ullmark loose.

Linus Ullmark has signed a two-year contract with Buffalo.

Ullmark also played in one game at the NHL level with the Sabres after he appeared in 20 contests with the big club in 2015-16. He is projected to be Buffalo's backup goaltender in 2017-18.

The Sabres are hoping that Linus Ullmark is not selected in the expansion draft by the Vegas Golden Knights.

The 23-year-old goaltender is coming off a very strong season with the Rochester Amerks leading the AHL in appearances (55), minutes played (3,201) and shots faced (1,678). Ullmark was also voted as the Amerks' MVP. The Sabres, who will expose Ullmark to the draft, are hoping he will slip by and start the 2017-18 campaign as the backup to starter Robin Lehner. The expansion draft should make for interesting viewing.
