As the Sabres got their starting goaltender in Carter Hutton, the Rochester Americans got theirs in Scott Wedgewood. It’s a $650,000 two-way contract.
Wedgewood will be 26 next month and was a 3rd round (84th overall) selection in the 2010 Draft by the New Jersey Devils. He served as a backup for the Arizona Coyotes last year, but before that spent some time in the Devils’ organization.
With Linus Ullmark as Buffalo’s backup, a spot opened in Rochester and Wedgewood will have the chance to play regularly there.
