Sabres Send Devon Levi Down to AHL

The Buffalo Sabres have made a notable move, as they have reassigned top rookie Devon Levi to the Rochester Americans of the AHL. 

Levi, 22, performed wonderfully during his latest recall to the Sabres. In three appearances with the Sabres over that span, he had a .947 save percentage (SV%) to go along with a 1.78 goals-against average (GAA). Overall, it was a successful call-up for Levi, and now he will look to build off it back down in the AHL with the Amerks. 

Levi has appeared in 23 games during this season with the Sabres, where he has a 10-8-2 record to go along with a .899 SV% and a 3.10 GAA. While he struggled out of the gate, he has shown signs of promise each time he has been called back up by the Sabres. 

Down at the AHL level, Levi has played wonderfully, as he has an 11-5-3 record, a .927 SV%, and a 2.52 GAA in 19 games. 

It will now be interesting to see how Levi responds to this latest reassignment to the Amerks. With it being such a key part of the season, the AHL squad will be hoping that he can put up some big-time performances.
