The Buffalo Sabres have made another call up on Wednesday morning, bringing up Nick Baptiste from the Rochester Americans.

This is Baptiste's first call up of the 2017-18 season.

The 22-year old got off to a slower start in Rochester this season, but has picked things up lately with three goals and two assists in the last three games.

Baptiste led the Amerks last season in goal scoring with 25 goals in 59 games. In 14 games with the Sabres last season, Baptiste netted three goals and added an assist to the scoresheet.

Baptiste was not on the ice for the Sabres on Wednesday for practice, but it is believed that he was called up for Justin Bailey. Bailey was also not on the ice for the morning's practice.

The Sabres will head out to Arizona later in the day, before taking on the Coyotes on Thursday at 10 p.m. You can hear the game on ESPN 1520 with the Buffalo Bills playing on WGR Sports Radio 550. Pre-game coverage with Brian Koziol starts at 9 p.m.
