BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Sabres have suspended rookie defenseman Nikita Zadorov for failing to report to the team on time following the NHL all-star break.

The Sabres did not say how long the suspension would last. The penalty was handed down after Zadorov missed Monday afternoon’s practice.

Buffalo general manager Tim Murray says he anticipates allowing the 6-foot-5 Zadorov to rejoin the team sometime this week during its three-game western road trip.

Zadarov had two assists in 20 minutes in the Sabres’ last game, a 6-4 loss to Detroit on Jan. 18.

Also Monday, the Sabres recalled goalie Matt Hackett and forward Matt Ellis from the Rochester Americans of the AHL.
