  • Nathan Lieuwen: Retiring due to concussion problems

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/1/17) Lieuwen has retired from professional hockey due to ongoing concussion issues, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Lieuwen sustained a severe concussion on April 6, 2014 when he was hit in the head by Philadelphia's Jay Rosehill as he was coming across the goal crease. Lieuwen experienced some of the common symptoms of a concussion, but he suffered from a more uncommon one as well -- his vision was completely thrown off and since then, he has never been able to track the puck as easily as he could before the incident. It's an unfortunate story, especially considering the goalie is just 25 years old, but the silver lining is that Lieuwen said he plans to stay involved with hockey, perhaps becoming a goalie coach sometime in the near future.

    Sabres' Nathan Lieuwen: Sent down to AHL Rochester

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Lieuwen was reassigned Friday to AHL Rochester.

    Despite being in the majors, Lieuwen never made it onto the ice and has been returned to the Americans. In fact, the netminder has not seen action in an NHL game since the 2013-14 campaign in which he posted a 1-4-0 record, along with two relief appearances, resulting in a .906 save percentage. The signing of Jason Kasdorf, and subsequent start Saturday, does not bode well for the 24-year-old's chances of seeing regular playing time with the Sabres in the future.

    Sabres' Nathan Lieuwen: Called up by Sabres

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/16) Lieuwen was called up Friday and will backup Chad Johnson against the Senators.

    AHL Rochester has been rotating three goalies all season and Lieuwen leads the team in appearances (26), wins (14) and goals-against average (2.86). The 24-year-old former sixth-round pick has seven NHL games under his belt but has yet to make an appearance for the Sabres this season despite getting called up in October when Robin Lehner (lower body) suffered a high-ankle sprain in the season opener. Head coach Dan Bylsma said Lieuwen will be with the team for the next two games, which means that he may see some game action.

    Sabres call up goalie Nathan Lieuwen on Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/15) The Sabres recalled goalie Nathan Lieuwen from AHL Rochester on Saturday, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.

    The Sabres placed primary goaltender Robin Lehner (lower body) on injured reserve Saturday, and brought up Lieuwen to add a second goaltender to the roster. Chad Johnson is slated to be the Sabres' top goaltender in Lehner's absence, and Lieuwen will slot in as his backup.
