Buffalo fans have been waiting all day for the Sabres to make a move, and finally they have. It’s not a big signing in terms of salary, but in terms of size, it is.
The Sabres have agreed to terms with John Scott, a 6’8″, 270 pound enforcer who should help make the team a bit tougher.
“John’s size and toughness make him a difficult player to battle against,” Regier said. “His physical play will be a valuable addition to our team.”
It is a one year contract worth $600,000. Scott has recorded five points (1 G, 4 A) in 146 NHL games. He has played for the Rangers, Wild and Blackhawks.
