He scored two big goals, including the game winner, Friday night at the Frozen Frontier and now Amerks officials say Matt Ellis will be headed back to the NHL.

The team tells News10NBC that captain Matt Ellis has been recalled by the Buffalo Sabres. He has played in 25 games for the Amerks so far this season amassing 10 points.

This is Ellis' first call-up of the season, but he has played in 197 games for the Sabres since joining the team in 2008.

Ellis was a big part of Friday night's win over the Lake Erie Monsters. He scored the first goal of the night, along the game winner off the post during the shootout.
