Varone finally gets callup to the NHL
When an American Hockey League coach tells one of his players that they're going up to the NHL, the moment is always exciting.
But when a player hears those words for the first time, well, the body pretty much goes numb and the mind races.
So Phil Varone learned barely an hour ago.
The Rochester Americans' leading scorer learned from coach Chadd Cassidy that he is joining the Buffalo Sabres. Varone was promoted following the Amerks practice this afternoon and very likely will be in a Sabres sweater for Thursday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes at the First Niagara Center.
