The Buffalo Sabres have signed left-winger Benoit Pouliot to a one-year deal worth $1,150,000.
Pouliot was a 4th overall selection in the 2005 Draft. He has played for the Wild, Canadiens, Bruins, Lightning, Rangers and Oilers. His best season arguably came with Edmonton when he scored 19 goals, his career high, in 58 games.
Pouliot’s career plus/minus rating is +33. He’s proved to be inconsistent, but General Manager Jason Botterill and the Sabres are hoping that the forward can put it together in Buffalo. Pouliot was bought out by the Oilers, and this appears to be a low-risk, high-reward signing for the Sabres.
