Sabres sign Victor Antipin

The Buffalo Sabres have officially signed Victor Antipin to a one-year deal.

It was just a matter of time, but now the Sabres have the defenseman, who they could definitely use. Antipin isn’t projected to be a top-pair guy, but he could fit in well on the second or third pairing.

One of his biggest strengths is that he can play in all situations, especially the power play.

“Viktor is a well-rounded defenseman who has played in all situations at the pro level,” Sabres GM Jason Botterill said. “His mobility and puck-moving skills make him a perfect match for what we’re hoping to build with our defense corps next season.”

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
