Tim Kennedy won’t have to leave the state of New York for his team’s home games this season. However, that team is not the Buffalo Sabres. After being awarded $1 million in an arbitration hearing, Kennedy’s contract was bought out by the Sabres.
Kennedy has signed a one year deal with the New York Rangers. It is a one-way $550,000 contract. Kennedy scored 24 points in 78 games as a rookie last season with the Sabres.
