Sabres recall Brennan from Rochester

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today that defenseman T.J. Brennan has been recalled from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

Brennan joins the Sabres on his second career recall after a brief stint with the team last week. Brennan was recalled prior to Buffalo’s game at Carolina, but did not dress for the game and has yet to make his NHL debut.

In his third professional season, Brennan has played 17 games with Rochester, compiling seven points (3+4) and eight penalty minutes. In 2010-11, he ranked second among Portland Pirates (AHL) defensemen with 39 points (15+24) in 72 games.

In 154 career AHL games, Brennan has totaled 69 points (24+45) and 121 penalty minutes. He was selected by the Sabres in the second round (31st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
