BUFFALO, N. Isaiah Hartenstein Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have put their youth movement on hold a week after Pat LaFontaine took over. LaFontaine, the teams new president of hockey operations, announced a significant roster shuffle on Tuesday, when the Sabres demoted four rookies before their home game against St. Louis. Veteran defenceman Mike Weber also was activated from injured reserve after missing 10 games with a thumb injury and is expected to play against the Blues. Defenceman Nikita Zadorov was returned to his Canadian Junior team, the Ontario Hockey League London Knights. The move was made before Zadorov played his 10th NHL game, which is when his three-year contract would come into effect. Drafted 16th overall in June, Zadorov had a goal in seven games in Buffalo. Fellow 2013 first-round pick, defenceman Rasmus Ristolainen, and forward Johan Larsson were assigned to the Sabres AHL affiliate in Rochester, N.Y. Center Mikhail Grigorenko is also heading to Rochester but on a conditioning assignment. That move gives the Sabres two weeks to determine whether to recall Grigorenko or send him to his junior team in Quebec. Grigorenko has struggled finding a niche in Buffalo since being selected in the first round of the 2012 draft. After making the Sabres roster to start last season, Grigorenko was returned to Quebec in March. He made the Sabres once again this season, but has lacked playing time. Grigorenko has missed five of the past seven games and has two goals and an assist in 15 games this season. The demotions mark a significant shift in philosophy under LaFontaine and interim coach Ted Nolan. The two took over after general manager Darcy Regier and coach Ron Rolston were fired last week after the Sabres got off to a franchise-worst 4-15-1 start. Regier made it clear that he was intent on rebuilding the Sabres through younger players, no matter the teams record. On Tuesday, Nolan said the Sabres intend to fill the open roster spots later this week by recalling players from Rochester. One potential candidate is veteran forward Patrick Kaleta, who was assigned to Rochester after being waived by the Sabres two weeks ago.Otis Thorpe Jersey . - Alex Dostie scored two goals and assisted on another to lead the Gatineau Olympiques to a 5-3 victory over the Drummondville Voltigeurs in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action on Sunday.

Toronto has lost five of its last six games on the heels of a season-high six- game winning streak from earlier this month. The recent rough patch includes a 1-3-0 record on a seven-game road trip that continues tonight at TD Garden. Wednesdays clash marks the third of four regular-season meetings between these Atlantic Division rivals. The last time the Bruins and Maple Leafs met was on Nov. 12 when Toronto recorded a 6-1 blowout victory at Air Canada Centre behind a two-goal performance from ex-Boston winger Phil Kessel. That lopsided win marked Torontos third victory in the past four meetings with the Bruins, but that success hasnt translated to the road. The Leafs did earn a win their last time in Beantown, notching a 4-3 decision on Jan. 14 of last season, halting a six-game slide at TD Garden. Boston is 12-2-1 in its last 15 home meetings against the Leafs and owns a 12-6-2 record at TD Garden this season. The Bruins picked up their third straight victory as the host on Monday, downing the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 in the opener of a three-game homestand. Carl Soderberg posted a goal and an assist to help Boston rebound from Saturdays 6-2 loss in Columbus, and Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for the win. Reilly Smith, Gregory Campbell, Seth Griffith and Chris Kelly also scored for the Bruins, who beat the Red Wings without the services of injured forwards Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic. Thats what I wanted to see from our team, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said. Its the kind of game that we need. Both Bergeron andd Lucic were back at practice Tuesday, but Julien said there is no guarantee the duo will return tonight. Kelvin Cato Jersey. Theyre still day-to-day, Julien told his teams web site after Tuesdays practice. I havent been told that they are cleared to play yet. Rask is expected to get the start in net. He boasts a 10-3-0 record, 1.85 goals against average and .937 save percentage in his career against Toronto. Toronto also played on Monday and lost its second straight game with a 3-2 setback in Tampa. The Maple Leafs grabbed an early 2-0 lead before the Lightning tallied three unanswered scores to win in regulation. The setback dropped Toronto to 6-6-3 as the road club. Mike Santorelli opened the scoring just 4:28 into the first period and Joffrey Lupul gave the Leafs a two-goal edge at the 7:47 mark. Tampa. however, evened the score with a two-goal second period before Steven Stamkos delivered the game-winner with 8:55 remaining in the third. The Lightning outshot Toronto by a 41-23 margin and that included a 15-4 edge in the opening period when the Leafs grabbed the lead. If youre continually receiving the game, thats going to happen over the course of the night when youre continually not getting the puck in the oppositions zone, said Toronto coach Randy Carlyle. James Reimer made 38 saves in his second straight start in place of No. 1 netminder Jonathan Bernier, who has been battling an illness. With Christopher Gibson being sent down to the AHLs Toronto Marlies on Tuesday, Bernier is expected to at least be able to suit up as the backup tonight. Reimer is 5-5-1 with a 2.64 GAA in his career against Boston. Bernier has a lifetime 2-3-0 record with a 3.86 GAA in this matchup. ' ' '
