Asplund was recalled from AHL Rochester on Friday.

Asplund has earned his promotion by racking up eight goals in 13 games for the Americans this season. The Sabres are heading into a back-to-back Saturday and Sunday versus the Senators and Blackhawks, respectively, so his call-up could be as simple as the team adding additional forward depth. If Asplund does suit up during his stint in the NHL, it will likely come at the expense of Curtis Lazar.
