BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres placed centre Paul Gaustad on injured reserve Saturday because of an upper-body injury and recalled left wing Tim Kennedy from Portland of the American Hockey League.

Gaustad, placed on IR retroactive to Dec. 17, has missed four games since he was injured against New Jersey last week. He also missed the first nine games of the season because of a thumb injury that required surgery.

Gaustad has three goals and seven points in 22 games this season.

Kennedy leads AHL rookie with 22 assists, and also has seven goals in 29 games for Portland. Buffalo acquired Kennedy in a draft-day trade with Washington after he was selected 181st overall by the Capitals in 2005.

Kennedy made his NHL debut Saturday night against the New York Islanders.
