Sabres Recall O'Regan, Wilson
BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has recalled forwards Danny O'Regan and Scott Wilson from the Rochester Americans (AHL).
O'Regan (5'10", 180 lbs., 1/30/1994) joins the Sabres for his first recall of the season after recording 34 points (18+16) in 53 games with Rochester this season. In three professional seasons, O'Regan has totaled 132 points (54+78) in 165 AHL games.
A native of Berlin, Germany, O'Regan appeared in two games for the Sabres in 2017-18 after being acquired from the San Jose Sharks in February of 2018.
