Already playing without forward Brendan Shinnimin, who was assigned to Portland (AHL) by the Phoenix Coyotes, the Americans learned Friday that the Buffalo Sabres assigned defenseman Matt MacKenzie to the Rochester Americans of the AHL.
MacKenzie was one of 11 players reassigned by the Sabres.
Rochester will open training camp Monday at The Blue Cross Arena.
The Americans open their season tonight against rival Spokane. There still are a few tickets to be had.
