BUFFALO —

“It takes time. Sometimes you have setbacks.”

Defenseman Chris Butler, dished to the Flames as their key piece in June’s Robyn Regehr trade, made his return to Buffalo on Friday.

The deal caught the 25-year-old, who played 155 games over three seasons, a bit off guard.

“You never sit around thinking you’re going to get traded,” Butler said. “So I think from that standpoint there is definitely some shock initially. Once you kind of sat down and looked at it they had a lot of young defensemen in Buffalo, I wasn’t surprised that they moved someone.”

•••

The Sabres made one lineup move, reinserting defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani for Mike Weber, who made his season debut Wednesday. Gragnani skated with Christian Ehrhoff. Regehr moved beside Jordan Leopold.

Former Sabres netminder Clint Malarchuk is Calgary’s new goalie coach.
