Sabres send Devon Levi to Amerks

ROCHESTER, NY (WHEC) – The Buffalo Sabres are loaning goalie Devon Levi to the the Rochester Amerks, the NHL parent team announced on Tuesday.

Levi, a 2020 7th round draft pick, made his NHL debut last year with Buffalo and went on to play a total of five NHL games. This season, he’s played in nine, posting a 3-4 record while allowing 3.73 goals per game.

“I take this as an opportunity to go back up, not go back up to the NHL but bring my game up to another level,” Levi said on Wednesday. “I think that the Buffalo Sabers are looking out for my best interests and I am as well.”

Amerks head coach Seth Appert told 95.7 the FAN Rochester that Levi “will be in over the weekend at some point” when Rochester visits the Belleville Senators on Friday and Saturday.
