The Buffalo Sabres have signed defenseman Shaone Morrisonn to a two year deal. He will make $2,075,000 in each of the next two seasons. Morrisonn has played for the Washington Capitals for the last five seasons.
In 68 games played this past year, Morrisonn collected one goal and 11 assists. He made just under two million last season with the Capitals
Although he may not produce many points, Morrisonn has begun to prove himself as a tough, stay-at-home defenseman. During the 2008 NHL playoffs, Morrisonn played every game with a broken jaw and a separated shoulder as the team’s number one defenseman.
