Could we call up Kevin Sundher as an emergency call-up?

Does the amount of injuries we have now constitute enough of an emergency to call him up? Would it be worth it?

The first question was asked in the injury thread by sabresEH. Thought it was worth discussing on its own.

No.

The majority of time, we are much closer to Rochester than anywhere Sundher would be playing.
That means that we would recall someone from Rochester instead.

From a technical point of view are we banged up enough to do it if we wanted to?

Well, it requires NHL approval.
If you're able to get a body from your affiliate, recalling a player from major junior is probably going to be deemed unnecessary.

If we were on a western road trip or something and lost a forward, then yes, it could possibly happen because of how far away Rochester would be.
Most non-goalie emergency recalls are unique situations though; see Claude Giroux (I think someone was injured in the morning skate in Ottawa and Giroux was minutes away in Gatineau) or Nazem Kadri (recalled from London while the Marlies were on a western road trip, I believe).

If we had a forward in the OHL or QMJHL and Rochester was on a road trip, then yes, with our luck, we would likely have to recall them.
Sundher is in the WHL though (and plays for the western-most team, nonetheless), so he'll be further away than anyone from Rochester the majority of the time.

I've always wondered what the circumstances would be to warrant a callup like that. You've cleared that up.


To echo Jbuds, thanks
